Cutting Edge Art Quilts

Another beautiful day that draws me outside into the garden as I try and stay focused on sewing. This last few weeks will be the hardest and most intense. I am also watching as my housework is falling behind and the flurry of cutting and creating and sewing is taking it toll on both my sewing room and other rooms in the house. I will get to the end and then, hopefully, have time reorganize my studio.  My garden is not waiting on me as it bursts into bloom and I am already picking artichokes! Yummy

With so many wonderful things in motion I get deliveries almost daily now! It is like Christmas everyday. They either come in the mail or via email. Yesterday I received word that contributed to will be released this week!!! I will have several of my art quilts in the book and its called "Cutting Edge Art Quilts" by Mary W. Kerr and released by Schiffer Publishing. It is so excited to get those kinds of emails!!


51 quilters share their design secrets with creative tips, encouraging quilts of all skill levels to “think
outside the box”. Beautiful color photographs show different techniques for adding color, textures, and embellishments to quilts.

I can't wait to get my hands on this book and grab a cup of coffee and dream! It is available on Amazon NOW as a preorder!! 

With that excitement in the air to make things even better I got my postcards that I am going to send out as a pre mailer to market. 

Emily Sheeder from eDesign studio,inc designed my card and I just love it!!! She is an amazing graphic artist and will help you put together any type of marketing ads you might need. She did some magazine ads for me also that were wonderful.  Check her out at edesignstudioinc.com

Gotta run but make sure you comment and then comment again on FB for more chances to win my Marvelous May Market Give-away basket! Lots of goodies are on their way to me for the basket and you!! Check it out here!!
