I am thrilled to announce the publication of my new book, Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts! Printed by C&T Publishing, it is available in February 2011 (click here to pre-order). The book features 11 fused art quilts with lots of hand stitchery for embellishment. All the projects in the book are based on house designs (think cottage, houseboat, lighthouse, etc). You are given the patterns, construction plans, stitch plans, and wrapped binding directions for each little quilt.
And starting in December, I promise to show you a project a week just to wet you appetite. If you are at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, please visit me in the Artfabrik booth (#434) to see the Gardener's Cottage quilt featured on the cover above.
I have to tell you, I really like this book and really enjoyed making the quilts in the book. I'm so happy to share it with you!
