My New Book!..for those with an Embellishmentality

Enhance Your Quilts-Embellish!
I'm Excited! My new book with American Quilter Society is coming out in August 2011! Yaaaay. This book has over 100 unique techniques for anyone who embellishes with fabric, thread, beads, toys, found objects, old linens, laces, string, broken jewelry etc. If you work with altered books or make art boxes, this book will inspire you to embellish with an artful approach. There are machine and hand techniques included.....each technique suits the material and affects the outcome of the work.

I love the cover, it is a montage of parts of quilts and samples of techniques. This book took me three years to make and my house had stitch samples in almost every room. It was wonderful to me to be able to put years of ideas and images in one volume.

I hope you like it,
