Another update!!!!!

So, I spoke with my editor, Judy P. from Kansas City Star.  We had a wonderful conversation.  Wasn't too long, she has the flu.  I was given some deadlines: everything has to be in by the begining of March.....AHHHHHHHH!!! No worries, I can get it done.  I did finish writing the instructions. (except for 3)  I just keep changing which patterns to put in the book.  I initially had 14, then 10, then 12, now I am at 11 projects.  My plan of action now is to gather my girlfriends to help me get the stitching done.  Here are the fabrics I will be using, all MARCUS FABRICS.
and some more drawings
and here are some pics of the quilts designs
Let me know what you think....have a wonderful weekend

Book update!!!!!!!!!!!!

So tomorrow I speak with one of the editors....from some of the basic info I have been given, it's going to be a very quick process....I still do not have a title as of right now, I do have all the directions written, but 5...that is if I stop redesigning stuff.  The book is scheduled for release in May at Quilt Market.  I will have more infomation by tomorrow afternoon and will get more pics up.

Well another year down.  Last year was very successful for me.  I met a lot of wonderful people who loved my patterns.  I never thought that I would touch so many so deeply.  Every last person was part of my success.  Thank you all so much and I can't wait to share with you what I have planned.for 2013.
