exciting news!

if you know me very well you'd appreciate how hard it's been for me to keep this piece of news to myself.  but i just got the ok to share, so here it is!

have you heard of the book one-yard wonders?  what about fabric by fabric one-yard wonders?
guess what.
there's a third book coming out next summer, called one-yard wonders little wonders, filled with projects for kids and their parents.

and i have a project in the book!  yes, i am on team one-yard wonders!!

i don't do much tutorial or pattern writing.  it's super hard for me.  and i almost didn't do it.  but i managed to make my samples and get them mailed and find all the mistakes in my pattern (i hope!) and now i am just relieved that the project is in their hands. 

it has definitely made me appreciate what goes into writing a book.  so it was fascinating to hear jacquie gering speak about writing a book at our KCMQG meeting last night.  she showed us the quilts from her & katie pedersen's new book,  quilting modern.


there are some really cool quilts in this book!  i bought a copy and am excited to try the projects.  as she mentioned in her program last night, none of these techniques are new ones.  but for me, the way they used the techniques to create exciting designs was one of those "aha! wish i'd thought of that!"



i love the combo of the bright blue with ash.





you know what the most inspiring thing of the night was for me?  learning that she started quilting, like,  four years ago, and that she taught herself with some help from mr. google. great job jacquie!!  thanks for visiting with us!  and if you're in the kc area, she'll be at Harper's from 4-6 on saturday!
