The Library Stack

Just a short post this morning, after yesterday’s long post about fruit liberation (smile).

I am continuing my ongoing series of sharing the stack of books I am currently borrowing from my public library. As you can see by the photo below, I went a little crazy on quilting books this time:


Normally I will have a self-improvement book, perhaps a home decorating book and maybe even a cookbook mixed in the pile. Not this time!  My most recent “power browse” at the public library ended with an arm full (I could barely make it to self check out without dropping any) of quilting books.

My favorite 746 section of the library was full of books clamoring for my attention (“pick me”, “pick me”, “no, pick me”!)

The first one I read/browsed was the Sue Spargo book – Stitches to Savor. Sue Spargo is very popular in Central Oregon and has a “cult-following”. I did not know very much about her work. After reading/browsing this book, all I can say is WOW. She is the queen of stitching and appliqué. I highly recommend this book for a browse (or purchase if you follow the work of Sue Spargo).

As far as the other books, several of them I have borrowed before from the library but want to revisit.


I finished quilting the recycled silk art quilt, Ohio Shifted, I discussed in the post Creative Quilt Challenges: Shape Shifting.

A photo of the completed piece is on my tierneycreates Instagram feed and here is the link:

  1. The recycled silk art quilt came out very nice. I am glad you got that finished and off your table so you can read all those books!

  2. Your library has a nice selection. A few of these books I haven’t seen. I’m currently listening to Neil Gaiman’s ‘cheap seat’ audio set. Thanks for the recommendation.

    1. You are so welcome, hope you like the book! Yes we do have a nice collection – we have a lot of quilters in Central Oregon and I think they also donate books to the library (I have) as well as request the library to carry the latest!


  3. You have a talent for finding cool books at the library. I’ll have to see if mine has some of those in their inventory.

    I think your art piece turned out wonderful. I knew you would do a great job quilting it!
