News from the Library Corner
We hope you are staying healthy and practicing social distancing. Hopefully your time at home includes some fun sewing. If you are cleaning and organizing your sewing space, please feel free to donate to the ACQ book fair any quilt books you no longer need.
I Hope you were impressed as much as we were with the April Zoom Meeting. Who knew how amazing technology can be in this time of staying safe at home. It was great to hear Sherri Lynn Wood’s presentation and seeing her great quilts.
If you are interested in modern quilts, here are few from our library:
A Modern Twist by Natalie Barnes
In this book Natalie Barnes discusses the role of color in quilt design and presents instructions for thirteen quilting projects using various color combinations for quilts and home accessories.
Zen Chic Inspired: A Guide to Modern Quilt Design by Brigitte Heitland
“Quilter and interior-design expert Brigitte Heitland shows you how to use the unique colors and decor elements in your favorite rooms to inspire quilts that will be right at home.
You don't have to be an interior designer to make a modern quilt that's the highlight of your living space--Brigitte explains it all.
Get instant inspiration with 12 patterns ranging from simple piecing to clever applique and patchwork projects.
Packed with photos of styled rooms with easy-to-understand color palettes for foolproof fabric selection.”
We would still love to get your input for new books that should be purchased for the library this year. We are looking for suggestions for recent books (published in 2019 and 2020). Please email your suggestions to Mary Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ann Roman (email@example.com). We will keep you posted of our progress.
Each month we feature a small selection of our library books for our members to peruse and check-out before the program meeting. This selection changes each month.
A complete list of the books in the ACQ Library is available on the ACQ website by title, author and subject. Find the Library section on the Members page. If you are interested in a particular title, please contact Mary or Ann.
Books can be checked out for up to 2 months.
Please be sure to return books in the marked basket at the library table at the back of the room.
If you are a new ACQ member you may not realize that at monthly meetings several members donate quilting magazines. These are free to members, so please be sure to check out the selection. These are located on a table close to the library table.
