We are all in for a treat soon. Our friends Carol Jones and Bobbi Finley have a new book that will be out in January. It's called Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form. It's been fascinating to learn about this style of quilt and to try it myself. I made a small tile quilt and it will appear in the book gallery. And I can tell you a little about the author photo. We shot it a year ago when we were in Cleveland for the American Quilt Study Group conference. We were looking around town on a lovely fall afternoon and came upon this beautiful garden! The owners might be stockholders in a miracle grow product, we marveled at the very large and lovely plants. I shot this author photo of Carol (on the left) and Bobbi there. Aren't they cute?
100 Blocks from Today's Top Designers, that should be on newsstands now. Their block is called Winding New Ways, it is block #3.
Here is my tile quilt. I used a drawing my daughter Kate made when she was 5. I've always loved it, Kate titled it Hot Mama. You can't improve on that name, can you?
