New Quilt Book by Linda Baxter Lasco

Are you familiar with the "New Quilts from an Old Favorite" contest held each year by The National Quilt Museum? They challenge quilters to use a traditional quilt block in an innovative way. The best 18 quilts are chosen for an exhibit, and a book by Linda Baxter Lasco. The block for 2010 is the Sunflower, and the book will be out soon, in time for the AQS show in Paducah April 21-24. I can't wait to see Linda's book. She does a fabulous job. Each quilter tells about making her quilt and there are some methods illustrated too.

The block for 2011 will be Orange Peel; quilts due November 2010. Or you can plan ahead for 2012 when the theme will be Baskets. For contest details see To order the book shown above, visit:
