Some Exciting News!

Every now and then I mention a website and group I’m part of called “15 Minutes Play“, and I periodically show things I’ve been working on from over there.

Most recently, it’s been my Color Challenge blocks, which I’m seriously behind on, but I’ll catch up.

Well, there’s big news from the 15 Minutes Play site this week . . .

Victoria has written a book!!!

I’ve known about it for quite awhile, but we were all sworn to secrecy, so I’m really excited to finally get to tell you about it. I’m so proud of her!

I’ve been observing from the sidelines ever since she started writing the book, and I know it was a long, arduous process, so I’m really excited for her that it’s finally getting close to becoming a real object that we can hold in our hands. And I’m really excited to get my hands on a copy when the time comes!

I’m even more excited that it’s finally coming, because I quilted a few of the quilts that are in the book, and I believe one of my own quilts, that I made because of the 15 Minutes Play site, is also in the book.

You can read more about the book HERE on C&T Publishing’s site, and it’ll be available this coming November. I’ll be sure and let you know more about it as time draws near.

You can read Victoria’s announcement HERE.

You’re gonna want to have this book in your quilting library. It’s not a pattern book — it’s a book that challenges you to do things and make wonderful stuff you’d never think of on your own.

Very inspiring . . . (and I’ll just bet we can get V to autograph one for you!)
