The books  here are not quilting books. However they are books I have either authored or illustrated. Quilters, you are all artists so I thought you'd be interested. I also included the children's books since anyone who has little ones running around can relate to them.

 

Please note: These books are serviced through my Amazon Bookstore by Amazon so any purchases there will NOT be included in the UrbanAmish Fabrics cart on this site.
