The Trendy Table Sneak Peek

So it’s been a little quiet here on the blog . . .

 

I’ve been busy with several big projects :  These 2  . . . . and a new book.

The boys are currently 1 and 3.  Life with them is busy and time for sewing is limited.  Though I’ve had to cut back on my quilting time,  making runners and small quilts has provided a way to sneak in some quality sewing time.  It’s become the perfect solution – I get my creative fix and I get a small project finished.   So, I have found myself with a bunch or runners that became the inspiration for this book.

The book has just arrived from the printer and I’m busy getting a blog post ready with the photos from the book.  In the meantime, I thought I would share the cover.

It’s my first time printing a book in full color, so I am really excited about that feature.  I can’t believe how much better the book looks with colored diagrams and how much easier it is to follow!  I’m curious to see what the feedback will be on this feature.

And now back to our regular programming . . . .

PS – The book is arriving in quilt shops now!  You can also find it in my online store here.

Stop back for the next post where I will be previewing the book and doing a giveaway.  Hopefully I will have it done by Friday😉

    Heather,
    You’re amazing! My time is limited due to being in a different season of life, having raised and homeschooled my 4 children while working on my degree, I’m now working full (+) time and enjoying being a grandma. I’ve got a large quikt in the works but get much more satisfaction from completing small projects. Table runners, placemats, mini quilts! I’m excited for your new book!

  12. Having kids the same time frame apart does wear on a parent and sometimes priorities have to change. I know they have for me, with a 5 and 3 year old. I love the idea of a colored book and love table runners and small projects. I just don’t have a lot of time for sewing right now.
