I must say, I kinda feel like this post should be titled "old news", but it is new to you.
Yes, past tense. As in, I'm pretty much done. I did the bulk of the work last spring/summer (hence, the "old news"). I do feel like I've been a bit of a tease about my news, and that might have been annoying. But, I'll admit it, I kinda liked being in that club where you have secret projects you can't talk about. And, really, I wasn't allowed to say anything. Because, if I was, you know I would have been blogging tons of complaints and moaning about how much work it was etc.
And, it was a TON of work. But I think it's one of those things (like childbirth) where the memory of how hard it was fades and the excitement takes over. And, I can hardly tell you how proud I am. I dying to see it acutally done.
The title is:
16 Sewing Projects that Combine Designer Prints & Solid Fabrics
7 Quilts + Pillows, Bags, & More
It will be published this fall by Stash Books, an imprint of C&T Publishing. I'm so honored to be in the company of their other awesome authors. And, can I just tell you? They are a dream to work with. Everyone is so professional and knowledgeable and just really helped me to make it the best I could.
So, yes, it is a project-based sewing book. Each projects uses both some solid fabrics and some prints. They're all modern and fun and there is something for every skill level. My first love has always been quilting, so there are 7 quilts, but since I never can focus on just one thing, there are also bags, pillows, an apron, a tablecloth, and more. I wish I could show you more than just these sneak peek photos, but for now they're all I've got. I think the cover is almost final and I promise to show you as soon as I can.
P.S. Holy cow! You can already pre-order it on amazon. That's my name there, folks. For real.
