Preorders open for Wedge Quilt Workshop!


Good things are happening! My first book on the wonders of patchwork, specifically, WEDGE patchwork, is about to fly out into the world on the magical hooves of reindeer and the scent of peppermint. We're so close. So so close. Can you smell the minty freshness? 


And here I am to show you a few pretty pictures (like the quilt above, "Hello Gorgeous") and get you thinking about some of the cool things you can do with wedge shapes. Do you have a wedge ruler? If so, great! If not, no worries, the book has all the patterns and instructions for using them with your trusty old quilting ruler. 


I love the way the diamonds float on the one above. And how about the full view of that cover quilt below? Does it make your eyes go buggy? The circles flash when I look at it!


So I know plenty of you will buy it on Amazon (And probably even leave a review! Thanks!) and many of you will buy it at your local quilt shop (Shopping local, right on!) and some of you will say "But Christina, can't we preorder a copy from you?" And I, intoxicated by reindeer magic and peppermint fumes, will temporarily set aside my impulse to avoid the post office and I will say Why Yes! Yes you can.

And, you may ask, "Can that copy be signed?" Oh ever so much Yes Again!

For you, my fellow wedge lovers, I am taking preorders. Just until the book comes out. And then I will make a single, joyful, and slightly sweaty trip to the post office and then, then...then the spell will be broken, for I will have remembered that I Do Not Like That Place. After that you can still Amazon or Buy Local it and I will be so delighted that you wanted to read my book.


So are you getting in on this not-to-be-repeated post office trip? Are you one of my signed copy preorder tribe? Fabulous! Click this little button below and you'll be ushered over to Paypal where you can sign in securely and send payment (the total will be filled in automatically for you). Quick and easy. Then when I get the books in about a week I'll sign them and send one to you! 


Now, if you don't live in the United States, please don't click that button. It'll charge you the wrong amount for shipping and that will anger the reindeer. We need them on our side. Email me for international shipping and I'll send you a Paypal invoice. Same thing if you want to order more than one. Or add my other books. Or any other great ideas that I haven't thought of but you have. If you are trying to do anything other than order one signed book in the United States, email me, we'll work it out!

I'll be sure to show more pictures from the book when it's officially released! I still haven't shown you some of my favorites!

I'm so excited for you, Christina! I was in your shoes once, and still remember the thrill of seeing an official print version of what I worked on so hard, for so many months! Oh, it's so exciting! I am sure the book is magnificent, and I'm itching to make a quilt. Hope your sales are through the roof!

Oh Christina, I too do not love that place, but I ordered from you anyway, not because I wished to inflict upon you further discomfort, but because I suspect purchasing direct from the artist/author is the best way to say I ADORE YOU! And to make sure that you are richly rewarded for your efforts, not to mention your sense of humor. I hope you'll be singing some weird or wonderful holiday tune as you venture to the PO. (By the way, I think they'll pick up from your home if it's a lot of packages through which you'll be supporting their endeavors. I won't tell.)
