Before I start, I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to all that have been on this journey with me. I've had a lot of you following me for quite some time, and a lot of new faces as well (welcome!). Your kind words and enthusiasm for my work and tutorials keeps my creativity going at full steam.
That being said, last Thursday I was a very happy girl! An advanced copy of my book Quilt-As-You-Go Made Modern was delivered to me, along with flowers from my wonderful publisher! It felt amazing...and just, surreal...to be holding it and flipping through my book! All of the long hours and work that went into it definitely paid off, as I am just ecstatic to share this technique with all of YOU!
This post is mostly pictures, but I wanted to reiterate just how passionate I am about this technique. You're literally quilting-as-you-go onto smaller (thus more manageable) batting blocks making it practical to finish a quilt all on your own while achieving intricate quilting! Plus it's a fun, non-fussy and super creative way to quilt!
And now for the fun stuff...here are some sneak peaks of the book and some Quilt as you Go projects that will be in it!
Being from Seattle, you'll notice that I gave all fo the quilts Seattle-themed (or Northwesty) names :) This one, for instance, is called Cascade Range. My hubby took this picture on our camping trip a couple weekend ago.
It was a teepee camping trip...yes teepee camping exists! And it was awesome! This one is called Chief Sealth.
