As with life, we know that's not really true.
My wish list included Ruth McDowell's no-longer-in-print book, Piecing, Expanding the Basics http://www.ruthbmcdowell.com/ . Of the six books borrowed from EBHQ's library, that's the only one I designated for my own library because it'll take me wherever I may go with this quilting life.
Also on the wish list: The Uncommon Quilter by Jeanne Williamson http://www.uncommonquilter.com . Use of non-traditional materials fits right in with my recycle/reuse ethic. And justify my found objects, LOL. Since they're small quilts, this book can jump start my quilting motor.
Well Santa came through on the former and got help from myself for the second. Let the fun begin!
