I have had Eli Leon’s book Who’d a Thought It: Improvisation in African-American Quilt Making on my Amazon wish list for years, and after the workshop at DSQ when I got to see it in person, I realized I should just go ahead and buy the darn thing. Except, now the used copies weren’t in a price I wanted to spend. I was pretty bummed, but then, on a whim, I checked eBay, and there it was, for four dollars.
It came on Saturday. You can take the nerd out of school, but you can’t take the love of books from the nerd. My collection is getting so it needs a place all its own.
