Welcome Home by Cheryl Wall has those warm, familiar country colors we’ve grown to love. They’re used in several quilts and other projects all inspired by the idea of “home.” Try using wool as recommended for the “Love at Home” pillow, or embroider details on the “Home Sweet Home” framed picture. You’ll enjoy all of the country warmth within this book.

More warm and homey quilts are found in Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith’s Faithful & Devoted: To My Adelaide, A Quilted Love Story. This book is based on a series of letters exchanged during the Civil War between Charles Tenney and Adelaide Case, and the letters are fascinating glimpses into wartime, hardship, courtship and propriety. History buffs will be delighted.

Then we shift gears completely for Quilt Retro by Jenifer Dick. Modern quilt designs using lots of solid fabrics are fun and quirky here. In addition to several quilts, there are potholders, placemats and table runners. All of the samples are beautifully quilted, which is like bonus inspiration!

Leave a comment by midnight Tuesday, Nov. 1 and we’ll randomly pick a winner for each of these books. Winners will be announced here next week. Good luck!
