I have exciting news! I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing a book on my Quilt as you Go technique. You may recall me posting several pictures of some quilts that use the technique (here, here & here). I also teach classes on it at the Stitch and Sew Studio in Seattle. It’s a modern and fresh take on Quilt as you Go that’s really simple, and best of all, super creative. My book won’t have cookie-cutter quilt patterns with precise cutting measurements; rather, I’ll be teaching the technique and illustrating how it can be applied so that you can create a one-of-a-kind quilt that’s all you. Think of it as ‘quilting-outside-of-the-box.’ 🙂
Spreading creativity and showing that quilting can be less daunting than it seems have been my goal as an artist, and the whole reason I started my blog. I am absolutely ecstatic to be writing this book so that I can further spread this creative and fun technique.
My book will be published through Stash Books for C&T Publishing. I’ve been a huge fan of their books, including the ones below (all of which I own). Stash Books are really easy to understand with beautiful photographs of fabulous quilts. These books have always given me so much inspiration. I never get tired looking at all of the beautiful photos and pretty fabrics. You can read more on the many different Stash Books at their blog.
My book should be available next year, which means I have to write my manuscript in 3 months and make all 15 quilts in 4 months. Yup, no kidding. That being said, I better get to work…!
Happy Quilting 😉
