something special

Something special has been going on behind the scenes over the last couple days. The electronic proof of my Quiltmania book arrived, and I have been proofreading. There will be 70 quilts in the book, New York Beauty and related designs with a few cousins and second cousins in the mix, and the book will be bilingual-- in English and French.

My French teachers from high school will be amazed

I did all the photography, and the layout is just gorgeous. Shelly Zegart wrote the foreword, I wrote an introduction and the descriptions of the quilts, and Quiltmania took care of the translation and layout. Originally the book was going to be 250 pages, roughly speaking, but turned out to be over 300 pages. Wow! I appreciate and thank Quiltmania for going the extra mile with me.

Book should be available in April. We are kicking it off with a big celebration in France, and I'm very much looking forward to it!
