Here are some more peaks into my new book:
This quilt is called Strippers on Wheels.....yeah...there is a reason for that. I designed this quilt for a special Bus Trip Shop hop that took place last weekend. Quilters hopped between 12 shops in 5 states and I am sure they had a blast. In each shop they collected 2 strips, so at the end of the hop they had enough strips to make the pattern. This quilt is made out of my Glow fabric line by Red Rooster fabrics which is available in stores now!!
The quilt on the bed is called Rocky Road. Congratulations to "Ruth B.", she came up with the name and I loved it for two reasons. The chains really symbolize a rocky road plus the colors I used in it can definitely remind you of Rocky Road Icecream! This quilt is really simple but fun and you only need one Jelly Roll plus dark and light yardage to make a Twin Size quilt. I used a new fabric line from Moda by Blackbird designs called Old Primrose Inn which will be available in stores soon.
The smaller quilt is called Criss Cross Applesauce and is made from 1-1/2" strips. I used some fabric from my stash, specifically from my fabric line Destiny to finish the top. The quilt shown is crib size and it would look great on a wall.
Milky Way is a great stashbuster. I pulled 46 strips out of my stash in greens, browns and orange for the top quilt to make a richly colored quilt for fall. Then I used really soft blues, greens and pinks for the lower quilt for a totally different look. If you really like scrappy quilts, this one is perfect for you.
I would love to hear what you think of the patterns, which ones you like best, what fabrics and colors would you use in the quilts and so on. Remember to comment to be entered in the drawing for a free book. Remember to comment on all the book preview posts to increase your chances to win.
