My book has arrived!

holding my book in front of  quiltI received a copy of my book The Visual Guide to Crazy Quilting Design I am as chuffed as can be – wandering around the house with big silly grin. I am so pleased with it, as C&T Publishing have done a wonderful job.  They did not squeeze the illustrations so there is a lot of eye candy, descriptions on how I did something, what I used etc and hopefully loads of inspiration. I hope it makes peoples fingers itch to stitch.

  15. Sheri says:

    It looks so beautiful! Any chance you’ll be selling autographed copies?

    • sharonb says:

      Hi Sheri , I dont think its practical as to autograph them I have to pay postage to get the book to me in Australia then charge people for the book plus freight to the US ( I think if I remember correctly – I could be wrong- that is where you are?) The freight costs there and back would be nearly as much as the book
