If you have been wondering why it’s so quiet here on the blog, it’s because I have been working on some new products…..I can’t wait until I get to share! One thing that I finally get to show is my new book, Shape By Shape
This is my biggest book yet! It’s crammed with lots of different designs, including some fun variations of most of the designs. But, what I am most excited about is the layout of the book. It’s divided into three sections; blocks, borders and negative space. So if you are needing some quilting suggestions for a particular part of your quilt, you can turn right to the section that you need. To make it even more user-friendly, the blocks section is divided by shapes; squares, circles, triangles, diamonds and hexagons.
My hope is that readers will not only learn some fun quilting designs, but they will also have a reference material that they can come back to when they get quilter’s amnesia. You know, the condition where you are looking at a quilt top and you forget every design that you have learned! I have been quilting for 10 years and I still get quilter’s amnesia!
Shape By Shape won’t be in stores until September 1st (which is my hubby’s birthday!) but if you don’t mind waiting a little bit, you can can preorder a signed copy now from my store.
Also, I just received word that my latest book, the Free-Motion Quilting Workbook is being shipped to my house as we speak! If you have pre-ordered a copy, it should be on its way to you next week! Yay!!
On a different (more mushy) note, I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who reads this blog. I know that your attention is valuable and I am honored that you let me into your quilting lives! I am so amazed that I get to make a business out of doing what I love and you all make that possible!
Happy, happy quilting!!
