Yes, it’s official, and I am absolutely thrilled Meredith Schroeder, the publisher, has chosen to publish my newest manuscript! I began working on the manuscript in earnest some months ago, but devoted almost the entire month of September to complete the proposal. I decided it was best to take it with me to present in person while I was in Des Moines teaching at the AQS Quilt Show.
I’m excited to be working with the new Executive Editor, Andi Reynolds, and the entire AQS team (who I consider my publishing “family”) on my next book. We’re in the process of finalizing plans and ideas now, and I’ll be able to share more details with you in the coming weeks as the quilts progress.
The book will not be about travel or souvenir quilts this time; it will be much more technique oriented. But rest assured, the quilts I have proposed are easy, fun-to-make, and stunning! The format will truly be exciting, and I’m aiming for a fresh, new, bold perspective. I think you’ll love it!
More details to follow, but in the meantime, I hope you’ll join me in some celebrating the new contract for my second book. Cheers!
