Weekend Reading: Minick & Simpson Quilts and Rugs

Are you enjoying the long holiday weekend? We have been so busy with traveling baseball and my husband traveling for work (each trip takes away much of two weekends) that we are very behind on seasonal yard work and many other projects also.

Yesterday my husband was productive and cleaned out our garage and one of the kids had a flu bug so I sat in the house and finished binding a quilt and reading this new quilt book.  I have always loved Minick & Simpson's classic red, white and blue palette they frequently use and their timeless designs.  When I found out Quiltmania was producing a book of some of their past favorites and some new patterns I knew I had to have it.  Each page is as gorgeous as the cover!

I have a quilt to photograph, so I am hoping for some sunshine today! Hope it is sunny where you are!

I've been eyeing that book too Karen. No sunshine here and I have a bag I was to photograph - maybe tomorrow. Get everyone healthy and enjoy what's left of the weekend.
