Library Project

Several posts back I mentioned the Library project - A challenge to identify patterns and books that we have on hand and actually make them. So I'm linking up with Chezzetcook Modern Quilts and identifying projects I've had in mind for a while and I'm incorporating this into my destash goal. 
Lots of great options and bookmarked projects -- here are a few that I pulled fabric for.
Up first is a pattern that I've made before but this time I wanted to use a jelly roll that I've had for a while and 2 extra strips so that I will have enough to make the pattern.

I love my scraps as I have mentioned many times before but before I started cutting them down into usable parts I was never a fan of the 2.5 inch strip (gasp I know). Well now I have an entire bin of them and a great book to go along with them so hopefully I will be able to whip up some of these great projects.
Another book that I have been admiring for a while is Vintage quilt revival -- this book is awesome and I pretty much want to do every project in there.
The first one may be this one but I'm kind of torn because I also have this great pattern that is similar but different.

Looks like I have lots of work ahead of me -- better get to sewing.


  1. Lots of great books, patterns, inspiration. Good luck picking the first project.

  2. Love your goals Katie! You are a quilting wizard!

  3. I love the Vintage Revival book too. I put a quilt from it on my library project list and actually cut the fabrics for it last night :-) Love that spiced chai project! Happy quilting :-)

  4. So great to have you quilting along with me Katie! I am using this endeavor to destash as well. Fabric fasting this year too! I love your picks, I have been thinking about getting Vintage Quilt Revival, your picks are making it hard to resist :)

  5. I would have a hard time choosing as well, oh wait, I have almost all of those same books and I haven't been able to choose! good luck with yours!

  6. I have a few of those bookmarked too. It will be fun to see which one you pick and how it turns out.
