I’m back!

I can't tell you how happy I am to report that the color book quilts are made and quilted, and the manuscript is finished. I'm smiling, Steve is smiling, I heard my first cardinal of the year this morning and the sun is shining! Oh happy day!

I have been working non-stop on this book for more than a year—could it be two? I don't even want to think about that now. My editor tells me that I wrote way too many pages but that's better than too few. 

I suddenly have some free time. Not really 'free' but I don't have immediate deadlines weighing me down. I almost don't know what to do next, except that I've got lists telling me what's next. 

For today, I want to share some news from Jan Krentz. Jan, who some of you may know, is famous for diamond piecing (among other things). One of her books, Diamond Quilts & Beyond, was published in Russia some time back.

Amazingly enough, the Sochi Olympic graphics are also very diamond-y.

Jan isn't suggesting that someone there used her book as a inspiration but rather that, if you like what you are seeing as you watch the Olympics, she has a book that can help you make a diamond quilt of your own. (I'm tempted to make one myself!).

Jan is selling Diamond Quilts & Beyond at a special 30% off now. Click here to go to her page to order.

Just for fun, try googling sochi diamond quilts. There's a lot to see!

  1. Congratulations on your book!
    I’ve noticed the Olympic graphics, pinneys, etc., have that cool diamond quilt look. Really gorgeous, and there’s a book? I tempted too.
