Yesterday my advance copy of my upcoming book; Next Steps in Machine Quilting: Free-Motion & Walking-Foot Designs arrived. I am so excited about this book. Ever since writing Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting I've known that I wanted to write another book on machine quilting. However, the timing just didn't feel right.
A year or so ago I finally felt like things were right and I began the process of writing this book. I will never forget the day that my contract was signed. This is my fourth book, you'd think I'd be used to this fun stuff by now, but I'm not. I signed the contract, then went in my bedroom and cried like a baby. I was overcome with emotion. Not stress, or negative emotion, emotion of gratitude, emotion of thankfulness. I am so thankful to each and everyone of you that have purchased my books, that have come to my classes, read my blog, just supported me. Thank you! Really, if it wasn't for the support of such an amazing quilting community I could have never done any of this.
I have had in mind that this book was going to take everything that I taught you in Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting and take it to the next level. I had so many things in mind, and thanks the the staff at C&T Publishing, this book has turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined.
Here is a little peek at one of the quilts that I made and quilted for Next Steps in Machine Quilting, much to my delight it's the cover quilt. :)
You can pre-order signed copies of Next Steps in Machine Quilting on my website, with an expected ship date of December 10, 2015. Just in time for Christmas.
