Hundreds of books, thousands of books ...

It is overwhelming. I’ve been sorting through my books for days now. Here is a pile of quilting books – only about one-quarter of them.
I plan to give away many of these to a local quilt guild next week. But there is one I definitely plan to keep. My first quilt book: The Sleepy Quilt, by Charlotte Steiner, Doubleday Doran & Co., 1945. Perhaps this planted the seed when I was four years old.

It is interesting to think about how our earliest memories are shaped by the books we read or had read to us. I have one with the story of Why the Sea is Salt, & I have never forgotten the wonder of that whenever I swam in the sea.

That really would be interesting to know if one small book influenced you to much in your love of quilting.

I know a woman who read a book about police dogs in kindergarten and her childhood dream was to become a police dog trainer, which she accomplished!
