Hello Buttercup - Dust Off a Quilt Book Blog Hop

 Today is my stop in the 
Dust Off a Quilt Book
Blog Hop
Hosted by Bea at Beaquilter.

So, Hello Buttercup.



The idea for the hop is to find an old quilt book on your shelf and make something from it.

Here is my lovely:


Quilts, Quilts, and More Quilts by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes
copyright 1993

To be honest, I don't know how I came about owning this book, but it was in a stack and it just called to me.  Especially this page:


I decided to change the layout of the blocks and make it my own by using up as many scraps as I could to make a baby quilt.


It's about 42" x 52" and has a fun fleece tie-dye design backing.


Here is the schedule of those showing off their old quilt book projects:

The tulip was the first paper pieced pattern I ever tried, and made some mini quilts for my friends. Your quilt is really beautiful, and with so much work. Congratulations on your finish.

Beautiful quilt! I have been looking through my old books lately and have made a few things using scraps. Love my old books and should use them more. I will go visit more.

That's such a sweet and simple design. I love how your creation came out. Where do you find the time for all that you do!??

Pretty! I love the tulips! My book is by the same authors, I think my book is the sequel or follow-up to yours :)

Perfect quilt for spring - tulips are just around the corner! That book has some great quilts in it!

You have made such a cute baby quilt from this pattern!

Oh I love this and what a great way to scrap quilt. Fleece on the back makes for great lighter weight quilts too! What a nice springtime quilt.

I have that book (and now I think I need to make this quilt!!) Nicely done, Carla.
