Advance Order for a Fantastic Quilt book

A Bountiful Life: An Adaptation of the Bird of Paradise Quilt Top in the American Folk Art Museum

This book will become available in a few short weeks and we cannot wait.  It is a love offering from Karen Mowery (you may have met her when she works at LQ or noticed other patterns we have available, by her company - Folk Art Children) to a wonderful antique quilt.  I have seen pictures of the quilt many times with a longing heart to be able to make it but, alas, I cannot draw a stick figure.  Karen has made that possible with the Kansas City Star Book Company.  Several of the blocks were stitched by LQ staff members.  It is not to be missed.  We are taking advance orders now. Full size patterns included.  Yippee!.  $27.95.

This sounds wonderful! This is the quilt with Hanible (Hanibal?) the Elephant on it! Fantastic example of early American folk art!
