Everything I’m excited about for my new book, Sew + Quilt!

S+Q presentation at PMQG!

I’m so thrilled to present at my guild on Thursday night to celebrate my new book, and I would love to see you there! I'll share the history of the four geometric quilt blocks I used in every project, plus lots of tips on working with color and designing quilts, from single blocks to full layouts. I’ve also gathered ideas from our generous PMQG community - on keeping a creative sewing & quilting journal and labeling your handmade quilts - to inspire all of us.

I'll show all 18 quilts in the book, plus I put together special prize packages (including new quilt labels, sewing journals, and signed copies of S+Q) for three winners! Here’s a look at the prizes… including my new orange sew + quilt pencils (!!!) which I am beyond excited about.

The prize includes

Signed copy of Sew + Quilt!
Your own sewing journal made from a vintage craft book
2 S+Q quilt labels + kit
Three Schmetz universal sewing needles
My favorite little scissors
Post-it notes
Set of S+Q Coloring Pages
and a S+Q pencil

I’ll also have copies of all my books and sewing journals for sale, or please bring any of my books you already have and I’d be happy to sign them. Anyone who buys a copy of Sew + Quilt will take home a quilt label to use on their first project, and everyone who attends receives a free gift!

I hope to see you on Thursday!!!
