Until the next quilt

I have two new books

in my hot little hands.
One of them I'm not going to say a word about it.  I hate when people do a book review and reveal everything.  In some cases in comes down to.......why bother buying it.
This is the book.  It's part of the Cobbled Court Series which I believe I've mentioned before.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and that's all I'm saying.
You can join Marie's "website" and get some free downloads.  It doesn't cost anything.  I left some information off, like where I live, because I just don't feel it's necessary.  My opinion only folks.
There are some nice patterns on the website for you to download.

Okay, next book.  It's a quilting book designed for kids.  I ordered it because there were koala bears inside and we rarely get that in this part of the world.  I have an idea of how I'm going to put them on a quilt, but that is for later on.  Definitely not now.  I have enough on the back burner.
This is the front cover of the book so you will know what to look for should you be interested.
These are two of the quilts featured inside and you can see the koala quilt in the last photo.

I really wanted to get one made up to critique the directions given, but that didn't work out as planned.  I'll have one done, perhaps in June.  We'll see how that goes too.
June 1st is on the horizon and last month I discovered that I was running out of background fabrics for Penguin Cheer.  I picked up three new cuts yesterday so I'm ready for Sunday.  When I got them home I found they go well with the others so that's a "good thing."

I have made up my mind that from now on I'm taking photos of fabrics I buy, keeping them on the iPad and taking that with me when I shop.  This way I won't be duplicating and I'll have an idea of what the fabrics look like.  The photos won't be perfect but hey, neither is my memory.
