Strip Savvy

I'm just a little bit excited to tell you that I wrote a book! It is not out until January, but it finally feels very real after seeing it on the Martingale website and seeing it for pre-order it on Amazon.

Here's a little bit about it:

This exciting collection features fresh, bright designs inspired by traditional blocks, as well as a few all-new block designs. Discover a wide variety of patterns for everyone from novices to experts--at a terrific value.
  • Use convenient precut 2 1/2" strips or dive into your stash--and create a quilt that's uniquely your own
  • Select from 18 fun projects and try new techniques such as flying geese, half-square triangles, triangle corners, chain piecing, and strip piecing
  • Enhance your quilt design by making clever use of leftover strips in pieced borders and scrappy bindings
It has been such a huge year. I signed the contract in hospital after having Olive, but we managed (just - I may be forgetting just how crazy that first six months was) and I am so excited to finally share what I have been working on!
