It has been an exciting (& crazy busy) few weeks over here!!
I've got a few things to share with you today. :-)
I'm having a Book Signing & Release Party this weekend at Sew Modern in Los Angeles. It is from Noon to 2PM on Sunday, August 12th.
We will be having giveaways & I'll also be doing demos of my new Hex N More ruler! Here is a sneak peek at some of the giveaways!
A Quilt Kit to make Stars & Stripes - Including a copy of my book, Skip the Borders.
A Quilt Kit to make Northern Lights - Including the pattern & Hex N More ruler!
Don't worry... I'll also be doing giveaways here on my blog next week for those of you not in the Los Angeles area.
I have been working on updating my Where to Buy page. If you know a shop that stocks my products & is not listed... please let me know!
The Hex N More rulers & new patterns have arrived!!
I unpacked the boxes and have been shipping them out to shops. If you would like to get a ruler or the new patterns you can check out my Where to Buy page or ask your local quilt shop to order them. Many shops have ordered my patterns because dedicated Jaybird Quilts Blog Readers asked for them... and I really appreciate the support!!!
If you placed a pre-order in my shop.... I had about 20 books that I was able to ship on Monday. I'm waiting for more books to arrive & have been stalking the UPS truck. As soon as they arrive I'll sign them and get them out to you. You will receive an e-mail confirmation with tracking once your book is shipped.
I posted this collage to Instagram a few days ago. It shows my green binder that holds everything I used and scribbled on during the development of the book. The second photo shows me holding my final proofs before I signed off on them & then waited patiently for the months to pass. All the hours spent sewing & developing my manuscript were worth it. Now comes the time for you to read it... Enjoy it... And learn from it. Thank you so much to every single teacher, quilter, friend & family member that has supported me along the way.
Today I'm featured over at Martingale's Blog - Stitch This.
In the opening paragraph Jenny asks... Is it possible to be a modern quilter and a traditional quilter at the same time?
At the end of the paragraph she says... Julie has one foot firmly planted in the modern-quilt community. But the other foot is clearly in traditional quilt design.
