Book Club

A while back I said I really wanted to do a quilting book one day.  I started pulling together ideas and making things. Frustration replaced inspiration and I wasn't able to come up with enough good ideas and wasn't savvy enough to navigate the publishing world.  Yeah, I was being a real downer.  Probably less than a month later, I was contacted by moda to see if I had any ideas for a book they were doing.  It just so happened, I had two projects from the starting work I had done that fit within their guidelines.  I added a few more ideas but those two were the ones actually selected to be in the book.   I guess they were good enough after all!


It is kind of crazy to be included in group of some really successful designers and I'm very humbled by it all.   This all started with a doll quilt and a challenge.  I would have never dreamed it would have turned into something this fun.  The book comes out some time in the fall.  Look for news about blog tours and giveaways on the Bake Shop blog.  I will probably give away a copy here.  I promise I won't deface the book by signing it! :)
