Coming soon to a bookshelf near you...

Is... well, me!





This is my book, Quiltopedia. 

It's the reason for all this blog-radio silence the last few months.

I'm ridonculously excited to see it in actual print, my name on the front cover gives me a little squeeee moment whenever I see it!

Just some final editting stages before it comes out in January (I think, although it may be March!). 

How about a little sneak preview of whats inside?? 

The Welcome Home Pillow, which I designed with my new house in mind (I'm moving any day now, fingers crossed!). It also features some of my favourite prints from Sweetwater's Road 15, their latest line which I loved!

Welcome Home Pillow

A mini quilt, which I called Postcards from Japan. I love how these blocks look like cherry blossom flowers... what better than Japanese prints from SewFreshFabrics to make the petals from?

And this, my favourite project in the whole book. The Obsession quilt. I literaly thought of nothing else but this quilt for about a week. It's made entirely from Art Gallery Fabrics, and quilted in a radiating circle pattern with my favourite Aurifil 40wt in a light natural colour. In fact, all of the projects in the book were pieced and quilted with Aurifil. I went through some spools, let me tell you!

This quilt is 80" square and I cannot wait to have it back in my possession!

So, thank you to everyone for putting up with me whilst I've been otherwise engaged, and thank you for still visiting! I know some of you still do, I can see it in the stats. Unless its just my mom hitting refresh on my blog every couple of minutes ;-)
