There are days when surprises come and make me happy! This is one of them.
I picked up my mail and inside was the Martingale Publishing flyer that showcases the new books coming out in the next six months.
I was especially interested in this. I did a quick look in the Table of Contents and zoomed to p. 11. There was the book I was looking for 'Kitchen Stitches'.
You know where this is leading right? I have 2 projects in this book! Imagine my surprise when I looked at their description and photos and on the bottom left is one of my projects. See those little coasters? Those are mine!
I am so excited to actually have the book in my hand in January 2014, I can barely wait! I can't show you the second project until the book arrives.
I am quilting too. Up on my design wall I have one quilt that I have pinned tight and have lightly sprayed with water. I am hoping that will straighten it out so I don't have to try and find somewhere to lay it out on the floor. With 2 boys and a dog, that is tricky=)
While in Utah, I raided Amanda's studio, she is the ultimate fabric designer for Riley Blake Fabrics and goes under the name 'The Quilted Fish'. She has a new line coming out called 'Twice as Nice' and it is super adorable. I grabbed a bunch of the fabric and made a fun placemat with it. No quilt of mine can go unembellished. Notice the giant red ricrac?
I am off to look at the Martingale flyer again...ok, mostly stare at p. 11 in awe=)
