We're nearly there - and the sign of nearly there is always the arrival of the advance copy. And arrive it did - Hand Quilted With Love - on Friday.
I am so so so excited about this book, I can't express it. For starters, it's a beautiful production - my new publisher, Cico Books in the UK, have produced a hard cover with a jacket and it it just so pretty. Look at the end papers for a start!
Inside are 16 projects I've been wanting to make for ages, ranging from very quick and fun and easy to quite the challenge. Included are - YES I know you've all been waiting for it, you sent me enough emails!!! - the quilt from the design wall in the front of Quilting From Little Things:
Although the book is called Hand quilted with Love it's not all about hand quilting - in fact some of the quilts are machine quilted! It's just about my love of quilting in general, and wanting to share it with all of you :)
If you want a signed copy you can pre-order now from my website. The book will be launched on March 14 worldwide, so stalk your local quilt shop or book shop, or buy it online, and I can't wait for all of you to see it!
I have some fun things planned for when it comes out... in the mean time though check back to the blog in the next few days for some pics of the awesome things people are making with my new fabric range for Spotlight, On the Pond, and some completely awesome tutorials for things you can make using the fabric, including some completely gorgeous stitcheries from my friend Belinda!!
