New Release! At Home With Country Quilts

 It seems ages ago that Cheryl Wall contacted me about doing some quilting for her upcoming book.  Cheryl's book is now a NEW release and I have no doubt will be selling like hot cakes!  It was so long ago that I quilted many of the quilts I'd forgotten what they looked like so I'll take you on a trip down memory lane with me.
 This is a block from Twilight Stars.  I loved this quilted motif on the stars.
 Starry Lights was another fun quilt (photo turned..sorry). 
 What's with turned photos?!  This one made the cover of Chery's book and called Star Gazing.  I loved it!
 Scrappy Squares is another fun quilt to make even for a beginner!
 Oh and gosh this one!  My heart was stolen with Night Blooms.  I loved the black background and was so tickled with the quilted motif on those nine patches. 
 As soon as I saw Autumn Winds I visualized leaves swirling in the wind.  Gorgeous colors in this one too!
Another fun quilt that was still on the frame being quilted when I snapped this photo.  The quilt is called Ring Around the Rosies.

Today I received an email from Martingale that they are giving away and E-Book version if your interested in winning go on over and comment for the chance!

What a neat book. I went and looked at more photos on Amazon and put it in my cart. It is currently out of stock (hopefully they are selling a lot!) but I can't order right now anyway. Moving stinks! By the way, we are going to the Tidewater area of Virginia--just south of Williamsburg. Not too far from you!
