By now you have had the chance to read many reviews on my book. Developing & creating the quilts featured in Skip the Borders was fun, exciting and also made me a bit nervous. I made most of these quilts 14-20 months ago. It's been amazing to finally share them with you and see your great comments. I have also enjoyed seeing photos of quilts that you have made from the book get added to our Flickr Group. Please continue to add them to the group & share!

Ok enough talking... I'm going to use my day of the Book Tour to show you more eye candy!
Detail photo of my scrappy bias binding.
Stars & Stripes
I feel like this wouldn't be complete without showing you some of the behind the scenes and outtakes. Many of the quilts are traveling around on trunk shows & I wanted to get a few more photos before I sent them off. So I headed down to the beach...
I have to give a big thank you to my dad & our friend Michael for taking all the beach photos.
Now for the giveaways... yes MULTIPLE giveaways!!
A Quilt Kit to make Stars & Stripes in the same fabric I used.
A Quilt Kit to make Raspberry Dessert in the same fabric I used.
A Quilt Kit to make In Formation in the same fabric I used.
