Check it Out!







































The book is finished! The deadline was tight, but the timing was just right. Barely hours before my spring teaching schedule began, the final version of the manuscript was approved. It is on its way to the printers and should be available by June. Isn't the cover grand? Kim at Dragon Threads did a fabulous job with the layout and design.

In honor of this occasion, I will be giving away an Amaryllis pattern and an Early Birds Fabric Kit to make it with. For a chance to win, just leave a comment here by Sunday March 25. A winner will be announced Monday the 26th.

Bravo on the new book! I just finished watching you on The Quilt Show -- a free episode for me during their International Quilting Day celebrations -- wherein you showed viewers how to use your patterns. I was in awe of lucky audience members who got to take one home, so of course, this is a note to ask if you would pick me, please?! :-)

I learned so much from The Quilted Garden, I can't wait to see what this one has in store for me. TQG inspired me to have courage, follow my own instincts and proceed without fear of failure. Some success, some failure, but progress nevertheless.

I have been a fan of yours since the first book-very inspirational. Can't wait to see the new book!

Maz said...

Being from Down Under, I may be too late for the deadline, but the word "style" says it all. And the "recipe" word. So more accurate than "instruction". Can't wait to see the book!
