The Secret is Out

"Mama, are you a famous quilt writer person?" So asked The Monster at dinner tonight.

"To some people," she then added.

Sigh.

Well, maybe...


My next book is coming out this summer! It doesn't come out until August, but the monolith that is Amazon has it available for pre-order. A Month of Sundays focuses on my obsession with low-volume fabrics. It includes quilts and more, so much more. It demonstrates the trust my publisher, Stash Books, had in me to include more writing than your standard quilt book. It includes the phenomenal photography of Kate Inglis.  It celebrates the joy of the lazy Sunday, from sleeping in under a glorious quilt to shopping for flowers to dessert at Sunday dinner.

I am beyond excited to share this book with you. It's been an intense experience, coming on the heels of Sunday Morning Quilts, and written in conjunction with the pregnancy and birth of my baby boy.

I can't wait for you to see it all.

In other book news, Sunday Morning Quilts has been nominated for a 2013 Golden Quilter Award. How cool is that? I'm not a fan of shilling for votes, but if you've got a minute we'd love yours. Check out the other awards too, it is a veritable who's who of quilting. Thank-you to our anonymous nominee. And thank-you, faithful readers and supporters.

Congratulations! I can't wait to see it. I must get my act together and make a low volume quilt - they are so soothing.

I love the line above the title, "Slow down and sew". Definitely!

Congratulations! I figured there would be food from your tweets when Kate was visiting, but knowing there are quilts too is even better! I love reading books about food in a narrative context and look forward to more good quilt writing as well.

How exciting! I've been really enjoying "Sunday Morning Quilts", which is rare for me, I don't usually like technique books. So I will look forward to your new one!

This looks totally beautiful! I can't wait to read the book. I know, the Amazon machine is a scary beast. I remember seeing my book up there -- cover and all -- before the final drafts were in. But it's all about staking your turf, which is a good thing too. Congrats again. Jenn
