I am so excited I have finished my first queen size quilt that will be published in my new book this spring. ‘Robin Run the Hedge.’ I created the center as a BOM a couple of years ago then went on to add a fabulous polka dot border then a 16″ appliqued border. My wonderful friend and machine quilter Carol Rickard finished quilting it this week. I have now bound and labeled it and it is ready to ship to my dad for photography. An added bonus was receiving the first draft of the book from my dad this morning. It feels so good to be almost ready to send the book to the printer. As I am off to Barcelona and then to Nantes, France to teach in April we wanted the book at the printer before we left. It feels so good to be on target.
