The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!

Wait, that's not right. The new Ricky Tims' Convergence Quilts is here! Not quite as catchy, but a whole lot more fun than a phone book. And I should note that the book itself is not new--it's only new to me.

I was anxious to get started on my own convergence quilt, and tired of fretting over trimming blocks, so I plunged into one of the projects in Tims' book. The hardest part so far is picking out the fabric. Other than that, it's simple, straight-line cutting, seaming, and pressing. We'll see how it turns out . . . (btw, the seams only appear wonky; it's because the strips are laid out, but not all of them are sewn yet).

Hi, thanks for posting on my blog. I love your convergence quilt! I love Ricky Timms, actually did not know he had a new book out though. If you went back on my blog, there are several convergence quilts pictured (A Little Romance, and On Thin Ice.)
I've always liked Alice Hoffmann too. Like you said, at first it seems like not much plot, but you get drawn into the characters. I liked Turtle Moon, and the one about the teenage girl with HIV, I can't think of the name.

I will let you know when my new book comes out!
