Scraps, Inc - Autumn Flight



Have you heard of the Elephant and Piggie books? My 3 year old daughter has several books in that series including one called We are in a Book and while writing this post, I keep thinking of Gerald (the elephant) when he finds out he is in a book - because um, I'm writing this post to let you know that I am in a book! 



The book is called Scraps, Inc and is published by Lucky Spool. The book is all about scrap quilts (my favorite!) and includes designs from 15 designers. There really are so many amazing quilts in the book and the photography is gorgeous! You can see some of the other quilts on Lucky Spool's website by clicking here.

My contribution is Autumn Flight (shown above) and includes a bit of improv piecing and triangles. When I get the quilt back, I plan on taking lots of photos and I'll write a longer post about the specifics including my process. I did take a few pics before sending it to the publisher but I was so worried about accidentally ruining the quilt while taking the photos that well, you know. . .  

Scraps, Inc was published earlier this month and Lucky Spool is currently offering the book for 30% off until December 1, 2014 at 11:59EST. You can find it at this link - and the code is SCRAPS30. 

I am so excited to have been included in this book. Working with Susanne Woods and Lucky Spool was a wonderful experience and I think they produced a fantastic book. The book should be arriving at my doorstep any day now and I really can't even imagine what it is going to feel like to open that package. And what is also really exciting for me is how very excited my daughters (and the rest of my family) are for me - I think my 9 year old has told everyone she knows! It still seems unreal to write it but Yikes - I'm in a book! (And is it okay to admit that Gerald's reaction after finding out he is in a book resonates with me too - his next line is "That is so cool!" - um, yep!)
