A thrill…

There’s no denying that holding your book in your hands for the first time is just that. A huge thrill!

I’m gonna hold off on showing you the inside for now but you’ll all see it plenty in the future…

The beautiful style photography in the book was done by Bethany Nauert and I had such a good time working with her to style all of the shots. I also hit up every single friend I have with a beautiful home (I’m lucky to have so many!) so it’s fun to see their spaces featured in the book along with the quilts!

I can’t wait to show you more!!

    Congratulations lady! The photography is beautiful and showcases the quilts so well. Context, context, context. The settings make the quilts seem even easier to live with as you are able to see them as both beautiful objects themselves as well as complimenting the modern decor. Hats off to you!

    I received your book in today’s mail. I LOVE EVERY QUILT! And 2 choices for quilting each design helps get the ideas flowing. Thanks. The designs are so compelling, so graphic.

    Rather than offer congratulations I bought the book and am very pleased. Great instructions, great quilts. Most of all delightful quilting motifs are very well illustrated.
