This is a short and very sweet post to share some exciting news, along with my latest Quilt as you Go.
Here’s the exciting news: last week my book became available for pre-sale on Amazon! Over a year ago I submitted a book proposal and heard back sooner than expected from my publisher. Then, I had 3.5 months to crank out 13 new quilt projects and write the book. It’s been a whirlwind of an experience, and seeing it available for pre-sale makes it so real! The book will be in stores mid-Sept., and will ship out from big retailers (i.e. Amazon) on October 1st. I’ll most likely be doing some book signings at local quilt shops so please stay tuned. 🙂
With that, I wanted to share some pretty pictures of my latest Quilt as you Go. I’ve shared some of these photos on Instagram and/or Facebook, but I wanted to keep my bloggers updated as well. 🙂
Also, I have a Quilt as you Go class on May 6th at the Quilting Loft in Ballard, WA. I think there’s a couple spots open if you’re in the area and want to sign up and learn the technique!
The collection I’m using is called Rosey my Tanya Whelan. (If you love it, use code RAIN15 for 15% off your entire purchase).
Some eye candy for all you fellow fabri-holics:
Here’s the blocks all quilted and ready to assemble.
And it obviously wouldn’t be a proper picture without my model and faithful quilting buddy, Paige.
And here it is all assembled. It’s refreshing how quickly a quilt comes together using this technique!
I’m working on binding it now, so I’ll have more pictures of it up once it’s all finished.
I was inspired by the colors of my vintage dish collection to make this quilt.
