I Wrote Another Book!!!

So I have been doing some secret sewing and today the secret is out!!!  I wrote another book!!!  I am thrilled to announce my new book Charming Baby Quilts published by It's Sew Emma. 


This book is all about my love of Charm Packs.  You all know that I love working with pre-cuts and I just seem to collect (hoard) Charm Packs.   I just love that you get such a variety of prints and colors in such a small package!!  Which got me thinking about how we all love to collect those little 5" squares, but maybe we don't know what to make with them once they are sitting on the shelf.


So I designed a collection of 10 baby quilts that use 1, 2, or 3 Charm Packs and each is a precious as the next.   You can mix and match collections, use one fabric line, or even use scrap 5" squares!!  But you are sure to find that each quilt is super fun and fast to make and perfect for beginners and experts alike.


And I am so excited to be working with It's Sew Emma Publishing company on this book. They have been amazing to work with and I am just thrilled with how they are making this book come together.  The graphics are amazing, the pictures are beautiful, and guess what . . . it will even have a spiral binding!!!!


So without further ado I give you Charming Baby Quilts!!!!    Charming Baby Quilts will be released in March of 2020 and it is even available for pre-order already!!!  You can pre-order a copy of Charming Baby Quilts directly from It's Sew Emma, or from Fat Quarter Shop (with a pre-order discount) , or if you would like to pre-order a signed copy directly from me, that is an option as well ;)   All pre-ordered books will ship out in March 2020     (** as you might guess, this is a temporary cover and I can't wait to share the full cover image as soon as the photo shoot is complete :)  .   


And of course, I will be sharing lots and lots more about Charming Baby Quilts over the coming months!!!  This is just a sneak peek of what is to come ;)   And I am so very excited!!!

Thanks for all popping in today and sharing this excited secret reveal with me ;)   I can't wait to share more with you all!!!

  17. Love baby quilt books - after the loads of baby quilts I've made, I still look for more patterns to use some of the hundreds of charm squares I've accumulated/cut from scraps.
    Your new book looks like a winner! Deb E / CA
