We Love Color

I was lucky enough to be asked to make a quilt for this great book awhile back…

We Love Color

It’s filled with wonderful quilts made by Elizabeth Hartman, Jacquie Gering, Kajsa Wikman, Malka Dubrawsky, Cherri House, Kathy Mack, Week Ringle & Bill Kerr, Valori Wells, Emily Cier, Lisa Call, Betz White, Amy Ellis, Jean Wells, Rita Hodge and Jennifer Sampou. Along with an interview with Denyse Schmidt. I’m pretty thrilled to be in such amazing company!

My Quilt in We Love Color

This is the one I made… had I know what the title of the book would be I might have used more, um, color but oh well! Ha.

So, who wants a copy?? Comment here and I’ll pick a winner on Monday!!

And in other news, I though I’d post a photo of just how pregnant I am these days.


Hence the major slow down in quilting! The job I’m working right now doesn’t help either… that will end soon, but then the lil’ guy comes so I guess it’s good I’m getting used to not having as much sewing time, huh??

    What an inspiring book! I’m actually working on my first all-solids quilt now. It’s a cute, slightly preppy baby quilt in Kona grass and navy.

    I don’t know what I like better, the book, your pixie haircut, or your fabulous baby bump. How do you sit in front of a machine and sew or quilt if you can barely reach the handwheel or the thread cutter? :) You have the best excuse for a little downtime on the sewing front. Best wishes with the incubation.

    Love that you didn’t use much color in your color block! haha And that baby bump is so precious. :) You look healthy and happy, just like a pregnant lady should.
