Welcome to the official launch of my brand-new book, Child's Play Quilts!
It has been quite a journey from rough sketches to finished book. Forty quilts, twenty patterns, two years, one new baby, and countless hours later, I finally have a hard copy in my hands. I will fully admit to shedding tears of joy. It has been a surreal experience up until this point. I love the finished result, and I know you will too! Every little bit—from the fabric choices to the designs, from the batting to the quilting and binding—every element has been carefully curated with children in mind. I wanted my quilts to be fun, friendly, and colorful!
There are twenty patterns, split between pieced and appliqué. I have also included a large section on sorting and organizing your scraps and stash, making it quick and easy to pull fabrics and to create a balanced collection of print and color. The color section is direct and gives my formula for successful fabric pulls. A huge thank you to Anne Sullivan of @play-crafts who took some wonderful photos to illustrate that chapter.
Thank you all so much for your support over the years. I am truly grateful for each and every one of you, more than words could possibly ever express. This has been an incredible journey to make it here.
With all my love and gratitude,
