    I'm sure that I couldn't bring myself to cut up one of my quilt books, Katherine T.

    I've been quilting over 30 years. Now if I found a quilt book at the thrift store I might do it. It would sure be colorful

    I only use books from the thrift store. The most I ever pay for them is $1. Irene, I think quilt books would make gorgeous flowers!!
