I don't really like to toot my own horn (although my quilt shop coworkers who have heard me brag about being a part of this project for over a year would surely disagree!) But since the Schnibbles Meister spilled the beans on her blog yesterday, I have chime in and tell you how excited I am about Carrie's book coming out this month.
Martingale has always been my favorite publisher of quilt books - they have the most beautiful photos and quilt content. When Carrie asked me to be a part of this project last year, I jumped at the chance! I made the Big Schnibbles version of McGuffey out of Fig Tree's Patisserie line, and then Carrie assigned me one other quilt - Short Story out of Basic Grey's Sultry fabrics.
I am absolutely head over heels in love with the Sultry quilt, and it's taken all my willpower not to show it off on my blog! I'm really proud that Martingale is going to take it "on the road" with them for the next several months, but sad that I have to wait so long for my quilt to come home!
I bought some Sultry charm squares in order to make myself a small Schnibbles version, so I can look at it while I pine away for Big Sultry. But oh wait - I have about a billion other projects I need to finish before I can make that (including another project for Miss Carrie) - Baby Sultry will just have to wait!
What are you waiting for? Go! Order the book! Order one for all your friends! Come on, you know you have to have one - it's Carrie Nelson for goodness sake!!
Thank you, Carrie, for letting me be a part of this wonderful project!
