Book News: Recreating Antique Quilts

Happy Friday, Friends!  I am happy you stopped by.   I received some totally unexpected news earlier this week from Landauer Publishing.  Urm… you see, my book Recreating Antique Quilts made one of the three finalists for the 2015 Independent Book Publishers Association Benjamin Franklin Award, craft & hobby category.  The winner will be announced next month.



WOW!  Little ol’ me?!   I am very excited about the news, but I am also feeling a bit self-conscious announcing it to the world.  But my sister might whack me in the head if I didn’t mention anything… I have to save the story of being whacked in the head by my sister (a younger sister at that!) for another day.

Credit goes to the amazing team at Landauer Publishing, with whom I love to work!  And I am grateful to my God and Savior, without whom I am nothing!

I will have more to share about Recreating Antique Quilts.  Meanwhile, you may read about the book here. Also, Landauer is having sale on my book.  Click here to purchase the book!!!!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a lovely National Quilting Day Weekend!  Come back tomorrow for a little giveaway I have for you to commemorate the day.  Hugs to you all.
