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??

    Your quilt is amazing – and shows a wonderful use of a limited color palette. Hope the rest of the pregnancy is uneventful and end with happy and healthy momma and baby!
