Intentional Piecing, My Book!

The day has finally come when I can share my big secret!  Goodness,  it’s hard to not talk about something that has been consuming all your time, thoughts and energy!  I am thrilled to announce that my book, Intentional Piecing, will be published by Lucky Spool in Spring 2016.  I am so proud to be a part of Lucky Spool.  With Lucky Spool, I’ve had the privilege of really making this “my” book.  I think you will find that the book reflects me and my work from the title, through to the projects, fabric selections and photography.  I love that I can present my work to you in a way that makes me feel so comfortable.  In fact, I was able to photograph all my projects.  How cool is that?  I hope that you will get a sense for my New England home when you see the photos that were all shot locally.

My book is focused on fussy cutting, which really shouldn’t be a huge surprise to my blog readers!  I love to cut my fabric just so and place it in a way that really makes a design effective.  This is what I mean by intentional piecing.  The book includes more than fussy cutting motifs, the book explores directional prints, stripes, gradients and even selvages!

Of course, I had to include some new pictorial paper pieced blocks and am really thrilled with these 10 new designs.  But there is so much more inside the book!  I can’t wait till I can show you everything else!

In the meantime, if you want to preorder, Intentional Piecing is available on Amazon (that kind of feels surreal to write!).
