This little blog keeps you posted on our unique lap frames for hand quilting. From time to time we share a quilting tip or trick or even a "How to" video. In addition, we carry one of the largest selections of quilting books available online so we often will list our new releases.

New releases for Discount Quilt Books.com and maybe a new Ring Frame too!
Discount Quilt Books is growing fast! Just today another 40 titles were entered on the website. To tell you the truth, I have lost count. I think we are close to having 700 book titles all about quilting listed. I will highlight a few books from time to time here on the blog. Small Wonders is a new release from Thimbleberries. It is packed with 44 little quilting inspirations. Clear and simple instructions make these projects fun and easy for any quilter. Nature's Table Toppers by Debbie Field has 18 original table toppers that celebrate all of nature's seasons. "You will find inspiration for fall holidays, your Christmas table, for fishermen, and bird-and-flower lovers." Debbie includes complete and accurate step-by-step instructions with templates for tracing. Quilt a New Christmas by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins will get you ready for the upcoming holidays. The book includes full-size templates of Christmas quilts, stockings and even a perky partridge pincushion/ornament. (Now say that 5 times fast!) Becky & Linda include a section on general quilt making and applique instructions to help guide you along on your projects.
Here is a little variation I made today for lucky customer out in Texas. I made a small change to a 16" Ring Frame - I added curves. The quilt in the background is a top that my mother started, but never got the chance to finish. Someday, I will have it finished for her.
