A New Hooking and Quilt Publication

Yup, something for textile addicted people who like to hook or quilt, and all in one book.  It is the new book by Polly Minick and her sister Laurie Simpson entitled, simply, "Quilts & Rugs".

Inside there are a variety of the same design done in both hooking as well as quilting and templates for all designs are included in the book.  Oh but you won't believe the variety from a Moby Dick Purse, Whale Pincushion Santa Pillow, Snowman Rug, Folk Art Santa Rug, Game Board rug just to name a few. 

And if that weren't enough to make you want this new book for your library, here are a couple of the hooked items...... an antique adaptation of the 1868 Rug.  And there is the quilted version in the book as well.

This White Star Rug design and Game Board are also included in the book.
For the upcoming winter season there is the Santa design, Santa with a Deer, Christmas stockings and Snowman Rug.
And doing a quick count of designs in the book, I counted 12 hooking projects and the Whale Pincushion.  So before they are all sold out get yours at Minick and Simpson

Thanks for dropping by.



  1. This is a fabulous book! I ordered mine from them when they offered through pre-order. The photography and layout of the book are so elegant and love the projects that are included as well! My first project from the book will be that 1868 rug... Love it!

  2. It was a Minnick & Simpson book that got me started hooking. My first project was the Santa. I combined wool and fleece in my hooking. That was 2 years ago - another obsession was born.

    Somehow I missed that a new book was coming out and I'll be sure to order, but ouch on the price!!! Thanks for letting us know.
    Hugs :)

  4. I took the plunge and ordered the book, just because you listed what was in it. I just can't wait for it to get here. Thank you so much for your recommendation.
