Yes, I know it’s not nice, but I’ve been keeping a secret.
I guess I’m not the only one who loves little Dresdens,
because the Acquisitions Editor, Roxane Cerda, at C & T
contacted me about publishing a book with them (2 years ago by now).
Wow, time flies!
& this morning I noticed this in with our mail…
I guess I didn’t look closely at the mail last night.
Oh wait, yes I did.
But when I found the gift certificate that my market friends had sent to me I discarded the rest of the mail.
I do have a one track mind…
& what can be better than a gift certificate to one of my favorite quilt shops?
Oh yes, this:
It’s my new book release announcement in C&T’s catalog!!!
“Dresden Quilt Workshop”
will be available in August.
It seems a bit surreal to me.
It will feature 13 new quilts that use either my Tiny Dresden plates or
my Tiny & Mini Dresden plates together.
It may seem silly to you,
but I spent the majority of last year making the quilts and then writing the instructions.
The worst part was trying to being quiet about it.
I only told a few close friends, my quilter, Tamara, & my family of course.
Yes, I know I design and write patterns every day,
but writing for a book publisher is a whole different animal.
Fortunately the folks at C&T have been very patient and helped me to learn their ways
(not easy for a dinosaur who is used to “doing her own thing” on her own terms!).
So, now that the cat is out of the bag,
I can’t wait to show you all 13 quilts that are featured in the book.
Stay tuned &
Just Keep Sewing…
