Quilting Modern...Introducing....The Cover Girls!

Cover girls...not me or Katie, but some of the quilts in the book are the cover girls of the Spring 2012 Interweave Books catalog!

Katie and I are so happy...there is dancing in the streets in Chicago and Seattle.  Interweave has also posted more info on the book on their website.  You can see the table of contents and also get a peek inside the book.  We are chomping at the bit to show you the whole thing.  April can't get here soon enough for me...a little over 4 months and counting!

The design folks at Interweave did a stellar job on the book.  They must have an on staff mind reader because they created our vision for the book to a tee! I have to say, it's simply beautiful.  It's bursting with color and they used the quilts to design the art for the book.  As an author, it's amazing how little things make a difference.

Sorry to gush, but I can't help myself.

Oh wow! Thanks so much for the link to the preview. I confess I was so excited when I saw the ToC and the first quilt (Urban Garden) that I had to call my husband over to look! The book was already on my Amazon wishlist but now I'm super excited to get to April and get my copy! And I love that it will include lots of process how-to on so many different improv techniques. Congrats again, looks brilliant so well done to you and Katie!

Pre-ordered my copy 2 weeks ago, April is so far away and my copy has to travel to Australia! Love the photos of Sardinia Table runner & the Winging it pillows. I can't wait to try something different, that is not my normal traditional quilting & patchwork.
