Lisa from Quilting in the Valley has been hard at work designing enough quilts to fill a book! We have twelve designs written up for both Large lap and Queen size, one for each month of the year. We have themed each month’s quilt to that month, and will also be adding in some favorite recipes to keep your tummy happy while you stitch away! A bonus pattern will be provided at the end of the book with directions for making tablerunners from the designs included in the book.
We are hard at work making samples for each and every quilt, just to ensure that the directions are thorough and to have wonderful pictures of each quilt included.
We are offering our book up for presale…..it will make it much easier to afford the publishing costs, as we are self publishing. We anticipate completion of all samples by the end of July, then two to three weeks for our editor to make any and all layouts, updates, and logistics decisions, then two to three weeks for printing. We should be ready to deliver the finished book by the end of September!
Just to whet your whistles, here is a picture of one of the Large Lap sample tops completed. This one if for June, of course Father’s Day is in June….so this one is a more masculine themed quilt! (Or you could change the colors up and just make a more modern quilt in feminine or neutral colors!)
