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??

    Ok, my comment will be that actually for the first 4 months after baby arrives you will have time for quilting because all they really do is sleep, take nourishment in one end and get rid of it the other end. After that, I’m afraid it’s pretty much down-hill in terms of oodles of quilting time;-)
    Oh, yes please, would love to win a copy of the book!

    New babies are so so precious. Relax and enjoy those wonderful days with a new little life. They go by too too quickly. My baby is graduating from college in two days. Getting into solids after years of big scale prints. The prints will always grab my heart but the solids are beginning to stack up in my stash. ; ) Looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’ve been looking forward to this book! Thanks for the sneak peak of your beautiful design. My favorite colors!

  25. Sonia B May 10, 2012 at 11:19 am #

    Awesome book. You will have plenty of time to sew for the first year or so . . . he’ll sleep a lot and you’ll be stuck at home ;) It’s when they hit about 18 months that they’re pulling on your arm while you’re trying to sew. Congrats on the book and the baby!

  26. Alli May 10, 2012 at 11:21 am #

  28. alex May 10, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    hey, you look great! and I think the neutrals make the yellow color really pop. Fits perfectly.

  29. Erin M. May 10, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    Hope you’re feeling okay at this point in the pregnancy. I’d love to see the book in person. It looks right up my alley- I’m currently working with almost all solids from my stash. It’s been so fun, but a little more inspiration never hurts!

  30. Flaun May 10, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    I like your use of grey and gold to create the “plaid look”. Great job!

  41. Jenny May 10, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    Love your quilt — it doesn’t need more color! You look great, too. It looks like we might be due within a short time of each other, but I’m quite a house right now, and feeling so draggy. And when I try to sew, my foot swells up like a balloon, argh.
