Look what the mail man brought to my door this morning!!!
oh excitement...... 20 copies of my book - supposedly for family and friends - yes they'll all get one and a few leftover for some of those preorders. I have another 40 on the way but with Christmas mail they may take a little longer.
Published by the American Quilters' Society has been released.
From the AQS website:
These elegant, traditionally styled designs will enchant and entice you to try the Colourqué® technique. What is it? Simply the use of colored pencils to re-create the look of intricate appliqué. All the easily assembled tools and needed materials are described in detail. Use the designs singly on small projects or combined for larger and full-sized quilts. Delightfully elegant designs in the tradition of Baltimore album quilts can be easily executed. Helen Stubbings is a lifelong resident of Australia who has travelled the world over. A quilter since working on her certificate in needlecraft in 1995, she has been developing, testing, teaching, and selling pattern instructions and workshop kits featuring her Colorqué technique since early 2000.
