So I have had a secret for a little while. And given that I have been erratic with my blogging (to say the least), it wasn't so hard to keep a secret. But, as of June 1st, we were given the go ahead to let the world know about this AMAZING book and our blocks in it. So, you see that book cover there ... I am in that book. For reals.
I am so over the moon excited about this, I cannot tell you.
You see, most days I feel like I am the beginner's beginner with this sewing and quilting stuff. I don't often get discouraged and pretty much always love learning new things but everything is new to me. And I have to learn things over and over again. I am not a "get it the first time round" kinda gal. I have to say I am beyond lucky that I have friends who are willing to teach me over and over again (Hello, Deirdre!).
But even though I am the beginner's beginner, I am in BOOK! That is such awesomeness. And my block is a favourite of mine. I mean I love it. Not as much as my kids, husband or dog, but pretty close.
And even if I wasn't in Modern Quilt Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks From Your Favourite Designers, I would buy this book. 99 different blocks! All amazing! Stash Publishing will have it available in October but I think I am getting an advance copy in August. If I do, I will share. Promise.
I am not sure if I can share my block but I'll give you a hint ... if you like working with all the different fabrics out there, you will like making this block. Yes, you will.
PS - Others in the book, to name a few, are ... Fresh Lemons Faith, Thornberry, The Long Thread and Patchwork Duck Designs
