Click Here To Order

It's beautiful.  Martingale did a wonderful job with the photography. 
The focus of this book is the type of quilting I have been doing since 2004, when I made my first art quilt. It 's about infusing your personality into your pieces with words and photographs and embellishments.  Half of the book details the techniques that I have used to add whimsy and heartfelt sentiments to my quilts. The other half of the book provides small projects that can be used as a jumping off point to make your quilts uniqueMost of the pieces are small and can be finished in a day.  You can stitch by hand or stitch by machine or use a combination of both.

This is the perfect book to learn how to:
  •  Add embellishments to your quilts
  • print photos on fabric
  • put words on your quilts
  • create your own embellishments from polymer clay
  • create small personalized art quilts
  • recycle orphan quilt blocks
  • add excitement to your projects by creating unusual edge treatments
If you are new to embellishing, you'll find encouragement to take the first steps.  If you have experience with embellishing, you'll find some new techniques.

The book will be available  April 17th. You can be one of the first people to own the book. Pre-order your copy by clicking below the photo of the cover of the book.  I will sign it and either hand deliver it to you (if you are a local guild member) or ship it to you free of charge in the U.S..  (Contact me for international shipping costs.)  I can't wait to share it.
