Exciting news!

I am so excited to be able to finally be able to divulge some happy news I’ve had to keep on the down low for while now.  Moda Bake Shop has a new book coming out fall of 2012, compiled by Lissa Alexander called, Sweet Celebrations, and I am a contributor!

This book is a compilation of dozens of projects – more than just quilts – to get you creating for your own family celebrations.  I have a few projects in the book, including a little Valentine’s wall hanging. 

A Father’s Day wall quilt.

And this one is my favorite – my Gratitude quilt. It’s a quilt commemorating the things, places, and people that I am most grateful for.  We’ll have to wait until this fall for the full reveal, but I’m so happy with how it turned out. It was so exciting to be invited to contribute to such a fun book, but to get to create something so personally meaningful was extra gratifying. 

I shipped these projects off last fall and last week is the first time I got to see a sneak peak of these images from the book.  They are so gorgeous! I can’t wait to see the whole thing.

Thanks for letting me share my happy news. You have always been such supportive and encouraging friends. I’m sure that I would not have had this opportunity were it not for your support of this blog. So clearly I need to have a “my blog peeps” block on that gratitude quilt. Thank you!
