A New Season, A New Project

Fall is a wonderfully productive time for me, with cool weather, the promise of a new season, and my kids happily learning in school. I’ve been busy designing and making projects, writing, teaching . . . life is good. And all of it is for you, dear reader. I’m working on a book for quilters that is all about you. Not about me, my projects, or my process, but about making your projects better.

I know, I know. It seems like every blogger is coming out with a book. I even get tired of reading about them. So what makes mine different? I’ve written every word, designed every project, and taken every photo with my students in mind. I’ve remembered their challenges, their questions, and the delight in in their eyes when I open a new window of opportunity and adventure for them.

The book is a long way off – I’m still deep in the middle of it. But that’s why you haven’t seen much in the way of new quilts on my website: 2007 has been the year of the book. I haven’t mentioned it until now because I really did tire of self-promoting bloggers who post only when they are trying to sell you on their latest product. But hopefully we’ve developed a relationship over these last months and you know that is not how I work. I decided to talk about it now simply for personal reasons. If I don’t share about it soon, I’ll absolutely bust!

My goal is to finish the projects and the writing by the end of the year, when I’ll send the manuscript to the editor and have the quilts professionally photographed. Wow. Okay, it’s real now. I’ve shared the new project with you. Now I’ve got to get back to work – the book awaits.
