    Hi Amy, Honestly if I had that pile I’d look at them all! I am really interested in Deploy because there are so many people I know who have family members away. Other top choices are the 101 pretty little projects, sew the perfect gifts and word play.

    I think the Word Play book sounds like it would be the most fun! That is where I would start :-)

    I used Tonya’s book to finish piecing my letters for my abc quilt; it was fantastic as a resource and saved me so much time. I would like to know about the felt book and Sew the Perfect Gift.

    Hi. They are look like great books. Think Strp Smart Quilts by Kathy Brown would be good, as well as Sew the Perfect Gift by different designers would be fun. Now to go to our all book store and check them out. Thanks for sharing!

    I am curious about the felt book. I love working with felt o little hand projects as a break from quilting.

    I’d love to hear more about the word play quilts. I have had my eye on it on amazon… but I work at a bookstore so it just seems so illogical to buy books anywhere else! (and we haven’t gotten it in!)

    Stash Happy: Felt gets my vote. I’ve never worked with felt and I’d love some guidance in that direction.
