New and News

I thought I'd take a moment to show off a new mini quilt that recently made its way into and out of my shop and let you all know about something I've just added that will be there for hopefull a very limited time.
First the new mini quilt.
I made this little quilt at the request of a customer who plans to gift it to her mom. Very sweet. The patches are all original hand dyes while the backing and binding come from my a stitch in color fabric collection. I hope mom enjoys both the quilt and her daughter's thoughtfulness.
Now, new to my store, but on a very limited basis is this:
I have 11(strange number, I know) copies of my book, Fresh Quilting: Fearless Color Design, and Inspiration, which I am selling and happy to sign to you, a neighbor, friend, or even your dog.
This is a very limited offer as I got the books for a specific event and these are the leftovers. I'm not planning on selling my books in my store on a regular basis.
For the two of you who haven't heard me go on and on and, maybe even on about this book, it features 21 sewing projects including 6 quilts, 2 wearables, a baby book, sewing machine cover, and even a kitchen curtain. It is beautifully styled and photographed and filled to the absolute brim with illustrations and step-by-step instructions.
I realize that you can buy the book for less from Amazon while I am selling it at the suggested retail price, but I won't be signing any of those Amazon books and I will happily and lovingly sign any of the 11 copies I'm selling in my shop.

I always use my library to "test" books before I buy and your book has made it onto my "want" list. I was especially inspired by your advice to "wing it." Winging it works awesome for my personal style of fabric art. I'm hoping to get a copy of your book for Christmas.
My name is Michelle and I am a follower and lurker, and now, a blogger. I invite you to see my work at http://fromheadtofabric.blogspot.com
Thank you for your fearless approach to fabric manipulation. I know it reduces many people's fears to see your end products. Thank you for inspiring me.

Your book is on my Xmas list! I have it out from the library at the moment and just completed the mix-it-up patchwork scarf. I like it so much I plan on making 2 more. I'm very excited to try the quilting projects. I posted pics of the finished item to my blog if you want to see: http://autumnolive.blogspot.com/2011/11/scarf-for-mom.html

Wow!!! I love your use of colors and that graphic punch to your quilts. I tried quilting years ago, in fact I went on a shopping spree for fabric (which I have containers full) but I didn't develop the patience for it. I really do admire quilting though. Beautiful work!
