I tore into it with wild abandon! My mailbox has been FULL of great news over the past few weeks!
Devoted to Scraps is a brand new book brought to you by Quiltmaker Magazine and the folks at Leisure Arts! And I‘ve got a quilt included!
A year ago while walking in downtown Williamsburg, VA, Quiltmaker's Editor in Chief, June Dudley and I had a little conversation of what we might include in a future book, but I had filed it in the back of my mind...WAY BACK..until it showed up at the end of my driveway.
I quickly thumbed through the lovely glossy pages, delighted with the sweet aroma of new ink with oohs and ahhs…I am absolutely over the moon with the quilt on the cover, aren’t you? This is Fandango by Karen Griska.
The back page says it all about the contents of this little 64 page book:
Discover how easy it is to gather and use all your fabric leftovers in these creative projects from Quiltmaker.
Thirteen scrappy patterns, ranging from wall-size to king-size, are sure to fire up your creativity and inspire you!
**Ahem!** Just who’s quilt do you think they are referring to as KING SIZE?! Look at that bit of Blue & White in the upper right hand corner of the back cover!
Lady of Lake Erie!
((You know how I love blue and white quilts ALWAYS!))
Quilt Size: 110” X 110”
I seriously forgot about this quilt in my quilt-stash! Isn’t that terrible? I think it needs to come out of the closet and go live at the cabin until I get the new quilt made for that king-sized bed!
What else is included?
Meet Me at the Manor by Connie Walker
Cactus Cluster by Margot McDonnell
Winding Road by Janet Mednick
Rosie Posies by Theresa Eisinger
And more, so much more! 13 great scrappy patterns in all.
I am also excited to be adding Devoted to Scraps to my Quiltville Bookstore.
This means that those of you who have been WAITING for a new book so that you could order a single seam guide can now order BOTH!
I return home from Dallas and Abilene on Tuesday – orders will start shipping Wednesday! Click HERE to order.
And as always, book orders of 3 or more books ship free within the USA.
And with that – this crazy quilt-girl is on her way to Dallas! Be watching for my updates from there.
