Introducing: Modern Basics

Posted on September 8th, by Amy in books. 53 comments

Yesterday, I was looking around Martingale’s website, I figured my book would be listed soon.  All the final details had come together last month, it was just a matter of time!  My patience paid off, look:

That’s it, my book!  If you click on the cover, you can sign up for an email when it releases, I did, and read more about it!

We still have a couple of months until all is revealed, but it feels so great to share this with you!

    Way to go!!

    And thanks for the quilt shop tips for our July trip. We got led astray to a shop in Bountiful. We did our part. Then they led us further astray by introducing us to Neilsen’s Frozen Custard. Then it all went downhill from there and we became custard junkies . . .
