All weeks are busy but some seem to have more packed into them others. Finalising stock for the AQC and loading it on a pallet coincided with the delivery of my book.
And here it is, finally and not a moment too soon.
As the name suggests, it is a collection of the things I love to make, a scrap quilt, baby quilt, pillow cover with yo-yo trim, red & white table topper, this year's journal cover, redwork sampler, sewing accessories and simple decorative items.
I released my first pattern just over 10 years ago and it feels right to celebrate this anniversary with the release of my first book; something that never crossed my mind all those years ago.
I have three copies to give away. For a chance to win a copy, simply post a comment by Monday 16 April. The three winners will be randomly selected.
If your going to the AQC next week, make sure you drop by Stand 191 and have a look at the book and samples. It will be for sale at the special introductory price of $22, normally $25.
For local girls, don't miss the book launch at Avonleigh Country Quilting on Wednesday 24 April, 11am-12.30pm or 5.00-7.00pm. Please see their blog for more details.
If none of the above suits, you can order a copy of the book here. Please indicate if you would like your copy signed. For this month only, there will be no postage charged on Australian orders and postage on overseas orders will be discounted 50%.
Good luck with the draw!
Hearty congratulations Marg just love you and your classes - "you know what I mean", love the red quilts and plum puddings!- "you know what I mean"!

Greetings from Northern Saskatchewan Canada! Congratulations on your book! It looks wonderful! You have inspired me to start working on red/white projects. It was your little bowl of yoyos! I too now have started making Yoyos! Not sure what I'm doing with them but they are just so darn fun to make!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
