First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting: it's on!

Hi everyone! I'm all aglow from some great quilting events last week, and thrilled to start off several days of book chatter and giveaways. I know I've been sort of quiet about what's inside this book. That was so I could let a bunch of fabulous bloggers tell you about it instead! I hope you enjoy what they have to show you.


The blog tour starts off today at my publisher, Stash Books. I have to tell you what great people they are. If you've ever thought about writing a book, please consider sending them your proposal! They were so thoughtful and caring every step of the way. They listened to all the ideas and concerns that I had and worked very hard to make this book as pretty and as thorough as I'd hoped. I even got flowers and cards from them on important occasions, like the birth of my baby and the arrival of my book (my other baby!). They are just such good, dedicated people.

Here is the entire tour schedule, full of people I adore:

9/25: Allison Rosen at Stash Books Blog

We've had a productive sewing week here. My daughter was so excited about the book release party she felt it simply required a new dress. She fell in love with this Joel Dewberry print while at Modern Domestic (well, her first choice was a Liberty of London print and I had to explain that some fabric is not for us mortals) and we turned it into a little frock that she loves, just in the nick of time. 

You'll be hearing more than usual from me during this blog tour, as I point you to wonderful blogs and book giveaways. Go ahead and start right now with the sweet post and giveaway at Stash Books! See you soon and have a great week!
