A Prairie Journey

We're getting close to the release of my next book, A Prairie Journey, and I wanted to let you know that I am now taking pre-orders if you wish to purchase a signed copy. The book will be released in July. I know some of you like personally signed copies of books so I begin taking pre-orders early so that I know how many copies to purchase from my publisher before the book is actually released. Go to my website to purchase and reserve your copy.


Here's what Amazon says about the book:

"Inspired by yesterday's traditional blocks and today's reproduction fabrics, the author of the best-selling Small and Scrappy returns to share more petite quilts with ties to the past. Thirteen designs whisk readers back to an era when the time-honored quilt blocks today's quilters love were just making their debut.

"Stitch projects with names such as Wagon Wheels, Crossing the Plains and Aunt Sarah's Scrap Baskets, or make a Tree of Life friendship quilt featuring blocks autographed by family members [or friends]. 

"Vintage photos and the words of pioneer women from the mid-nineteenth century, a time when quilting offered a welcome respite from the hardships of moving westward, are sprinkled throughout."


The release date is early July. You can go to my website to pre-order a copy. If you would like a personal inscription, then please write that in the appropriate box when you place your order. 

You can also pre-order books from Amazon or your local quilt shop. If you let your shop know ahead of time that you'd like a copy I'm sure they'll order it for you. Plus, you save on shipping.

Here's a peek at some of the quilts -


Sewing Box Scraps


  Crossing the  Prairie

There are many more and I'll show you some of those next week. We'll also start using the quilts in this book for our summer and fall small quilt challenges. Have a great weekend!
