My Book Cover!!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012
I'm SO excited that I get to show you the cover!!




It was great revealing my book to you a month ago, but it is even better now that I can show you the cover. The quilt on the cover is called Four Patch Shift. It features Pick a Bunch by Nancy Mims for Robert Kaufman.

Skip the Borders
Easy Patterns for Modern Quilts

My book is being published by Martingale. They have been amazing to work with. Choosing a publisher isn't the kind of thing you do overnight. I decided to work with Martingale after a lot of research and conversations and I could not be happier with my decision.



You can pre-order a signed copy in my shop. All Pre-orders will also receive a Jaybird Quilts Pattern as a bonus! 


Also if you will be at market...
I will have a schoolhouse session about my book! More info to come on that soon!

Added:

Martingale also just made this cute little button to go with their new updated logo! Personally I LOVE the blue bird! ;-)

I love your book cover. I cannot wait to see your book. Your quilts are my favorite on the entire internet. You insipire me. I like quilts without borders because I cannot cut straight borders. I love the color combinations and fabics you use. Awesome.
