I was emailing back and forth with my editor Jenifer talking about different book things! One of the things we were talking about was the “Directions At A Glance”, a brilliant idea she had for Scraps & Shirttails II that turned out JUST super…
Here is what the directions at a glance look like:
Those of us who have been quilting a while, don’t need all the wordy descriptions, but a short-cut-quickie glance gives us the info at hand to guide each step!
I received an email from Charon who writes:
I also wanted to tell you that the "Directions at a glance" in your new book is genius. I propped it up on a cookbook stand right by the machine and it makes it so easy to make sure that the little parts are turned the correct way. Love it! I sure hope that you use it again.
Have a great day!

Charon, I sent your comment to Jenifer and she is thrilled that you like it, she said she has been on pins & needles waiting for reactions and hoping they would be good rather than bad! We never know what the reaction will be when we put something new in print, and I’m glad you like this one! I like it too, and yes we will use this format again!
SO back to Jenifer! Not only is she my editor and my friend, but a Kansas City Star author herself!
She writes a blog called Forty-Two Quilts, and once a week she is doing a “Quilt Show Wednesday” Where you can email in your photos of your own quilts and she will showcase them on her blog!
And, tada! Since today is Wednesday, she asked me if I would share a quilt with you! Head on over to Forty-Two Quilts and view the quilts and see which one I chose! ((**Hint** You know how I love my tri-recs rulers?!? GUESS!)) Pop on over and enjoy the show and tell, and be sure to leave a note that Bonnie sent you!
