As you can see from the cover, Jill and Vicki love working with 1800s reproduction prints and weave them into their quilts beautifully. The cover features two quilts from the book, which contains 13 cozy projects ranging from bed-size quilts and wall hangings to table runners and framed art. In an earlier post, I wrote about the photo shoot for the book, which took place in a grand old home in Kansas City. You can read more about it here. During the photo shoot, Jill spoiled us with homemade Valentine cookies (the shoot took place in February). I seem to be getting spoiled a lot lately—One of my other quilt authors sent me a sweet care package of fabric and other delights as a thank you for editing her book. Then the owner of one of the Quilt Sampler quilt shops that I wrote about sent me one of their wonderful signature cookie-scented candles and Chocolate Mousse Martini Mix! Here's a pic I snapped of the dynamic duo during our Kansas City photo shoot in February.
Jill and Vicki's book will be out in July and I hope you will watch for it in your favorite quilt shop! In a future post, I'll spotlight my other quilt book editing project—Tara Lynn Darr's second book with us. It was a treat getting to work with Tara again after her first book with us. If you love mixing wool appliqué with cotton patchwork, you'll want to check it out! Tara has combined her love of the two in a new collection of cozy quilts that are sure to warm your heart.
