Renee Plains new book...

Stitches from the Schoolhouse
Picked up my copy yesterday!
My friend, Kimber over at http://heirloomsbyashtonhouse.blogspot.com/, was the editor and I helped Renee by piecing her large quilt, Abacus.
Renee is such a talented designer and I love all the projects in her book.
The hard part is deciding which one to do first.

Focus Cheryl!
So many distractions and sew little time!


  1. I have been hearing about this book! I was hoping to see pictures of the projects... I guess I had better go check my LQS! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. Looks like an interesting book. There is nothing like a new book, a cup of coffee and plenty of time to read :-). Enjoy your new book.

  3. I hadn't heard of this book. Now I can see that it's one that I definitely need to add to my collection. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I just bought a couple of these one for me and one for a giveaway. I love this book. Great quilt!!

    Somehow the little apple pincushion in it made me smile :)

  5. That is for sure! I would have gotten so much more done today if it weren't for lots of distractions :-) Oh, well! I'll have to check out this book. Thanks for telling us about it :-)
