Yes, I ponder these dilemmas all the time...haha! I know, I know...it would NEVER happen... but what IF? (Do you see the thinking bubble appearing above my head....?)
This is the book that I would take...
Yup...this OLD book (1988) by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes! Apparently I love this book SEW much that I bought TWO copies...
Let me show you a peek into my all time favourite book....just a few of the quilts that I have tagged! Like this four patch...LOVE IT!!
And check out this spool quilt...it has a modern-vintagey feel to it! I'm thinking of adding lots of 'low volume' fabric to this one!
Why THREE books you ask?...well...I planned that! One might get eaten by sharks while on my way to the deserted island... and then there are those PIRATES...yikes! Ahoy matey...they will love this book! And the new (1997) copy is for ME...it does have all those stickies marking my favourite pages... A girl has got to be prepared!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Moral of the story...don't judge a book by it's cover or by it's age! Old and tattered isn't necessarily bad! Think of it as being tested by time! Now excuse me, while cull my books!
Have a magical Monday and Happy Stitching!~P
