We have a BOOK COVER!!
Scraps & Shirttails II!
Continuing the Art of Quilting Green!
Brian did such a fantastic job with this cover..I just love it! When you thumb through the book you will see how we tried not to do an "old fashioned scrap quilt draped over a wagon wheel" kind of reproduction feel, and even though the quilts can look very vintage, we showed them ALL in very modern, sleek surroundings. They are graphic and beautiful and colorful, and go so well with today's trendy retro decorating schemes!
I've always felt that quilts are a timeless accent, and it really comes across in this book! And I had the best time being there for my photo shoot too....I'd like to schedule more of that in the future!
We go to print NEXT WEEK. The 21st is the projected date, and I'm all a-flutter!
There are 13 LARGE quilts in this book to help you use up your scraps, stash, and collected recycled fabrics. ((You know I don't do place-mat sized quilts!!)) All of them have easy construction, and we’ve included information on using the easy angle/companion angle/tri-recs rulers for maximum ease of making your scraps work in useable sizes. Of course, regular rotary cutting sizes are given for those who prefer other methods.
Weeeeeeeeeeee! It’s coming so soon! I can’t wait!
And another great thing happened today….
You know, the CRUISE that I am doing with Pat Sloan and Sew Many Places sold out within something like 8 weeks or less from the time we announced it. That is for this coming November, 2011.
I just got off the phone with Denise at Sew Many Places, and we are doing ANOTHER CRUISE in AUGUST of 2011!! So if you are on the waiting list for the November cruise….you will probably be contacted about the availability to come with me in AUGUST instead! It also leaves out of Baltimore, and is going August 7-14. More info on that as we know more, but I’m so excited to be going TWICE in one year! We are also working on tours for 2012, and I’ll let you know more as I know more as well.
And for you RRCB’ers ((That’’s Roll Roll Cotton Boll for those who love abbreviations!)) Part FIVE is set to go live in the wee small hours of tomorrow morning. Are you READY??!!
And with that….I’m off to take a nap before Dad and I go see Jersey Boys tonight! It’s a great day all around!
