Home Quilt Home

Exciting news! ‘Home Quilt Home’ my first book with publisher ‘David and Charles’ will be published at the end of May and I’m going to give you a little preview and offer you the chance to win your own copy!

So, here goes… lots of photos!

‘Home Quilt Home’ is divided into three chapters- Town, Country and Coast and I have drawn templates for many different types of houses and buildings for each chapter. There are beach huts, windmills, barns and town houses, flats and thatched cottages. The templates are all full size and are designed to be as versatile as possible- mix and match them as you please!

I drew all the little illustrations, provided all the fabrics featured from my stash and was photographed doing my ‘thing’ in my studio for the techniques section. There is a much of me in this book as there could possibly be and I am thrilled with the result!

Thanks to all the marvellous team at David and Charles for helping me create such a lovely book full of one of my favourite things- houses!

You can pre-order yourself a copy now on Amazon and the book should be easy to find almost everywhere else shortly.

I have a copy of ‘Home Quilt Home’ to giveaway, so leave me a comment and I’ll pick a winner at random on publication date, 30th May.

    I am not very good at sewing but would like to do better,quilting/patchwork/applique all things that it would be so nice to have a success with, but the prospect of even venturing into buying pretty fabric too daunting for a novice, if I win your book giveaway I will definitely give it my best effort, it would be rude not to!
