You Inspire Me to Quilt Announcement
Announcing the next book: You Inspire Me to Quilt!
I'm thrilled to share with you today the cover of my next book. The book itself isn't out until spring of next year, but with the cover popping up on Amazon and the book available for pre-order I wanted to share the news. I promise I won't talk about it incessantly between now and then.
In this book there are 10 quilts with patterns, each with a story about who inspired the quilt and following the process of the designer as they made it. (I have two of my own in the book.) The quilts are all so unique. Such a range of styles, techniques, and colours. I want to make each and every one myself. And the stories are so inspiring, it makes the challenges and joys of making a quilt so very real. Here are all the designers who contributed to the book.

Photography is again by Kate Inglis. It was a great collaboration, again. If you haven't seen the teeny tiny sneak peaks and behind the scenes shots, look here. And for her take, here. We filled the book with images stolen and made from the world around me. With great thanks to my friends, their kids and homes, the forest and her setting sun, graffiti artists, late season snow, and a food truck.
