My Patterns, Quilting, You've Got a Point!

Introducing my first book, You’ve Got a Point!

I’m dusting off the ol’ blog today for something especially exciting! Today, I’m officially introducing my very first book, You’ve Got a Point!, which is being published by Martingale and should be hitting stores in early June. I’ve posted a little about it on Instagram, but today, I’m here to share a little bit of the back story and some pictures. It still feels a little surreal to say that I’ve written a book!

Hello everyone, and welcome to Week 3 of the #swoonforjardin QAL! This week, we’re making four more Swoon blocks. I hope you’re enjoying the pace of our QAL…I confess, I’m so used to sewing under a deadline and plowing through my blocks that I’m rather enjoying just making these Swoon blocks four at a time!
