It's Arrived

I am so excited to spend some time with my new book.  I know, I need to get a life, but I've got too many quilting projects and books to work through so I don't have time!
By the time I learned of Gwen Marston, her first Liberated book had been long sold out and no longer in my price range. I had a peek through this book one day and was mesmerized with all the hand quilting. This started my journey to find some of her other books. I've gotten lucky in a used book store and have several that she co wrote with Joe Cunningham. Then I realized I had a few of Gwens applique books already stashed in my bookshelf. I guess I liked her work before I realized who she was!
Will I ever be a liberated quilter? I'm not sure. I'm going to try some of the techniques as they lend themselves to beautiful hand quilting, and that is something I love to do.
Take a few stitches today, you'll be that much closer to finished!
