I'm so excited to share what I have been slaving away at these past months. This is a bit of a dream come true for me, as it has been what I have aspired to do since I started designing fabric.
I've assembled the quilts and a crewel embroidery project, that I have designed for this current line of fabric, that would be individual patterns, into a book of patterns. Meaning, you will be getting 5 full length, fully illustrated patterns that would range from 10.95 to 14.95 individually, that's a $65 value, for $24.95. And unlike many books... there are no filler projects. These are all patterns that I stand by individually. And my reason for going this route, is two fold. I want to provide something special that is a really good value, and I love books. I love designing books, and so many peeps that I have conferred with agree, a book has a much higher emotional value than sheets of paper. And as you might have gathered, I need every little thing to have a meaning.
and did I mention that it's really beautiful? A good friend of mine, Carolee Beckham, was the photographer for this project, and she did a fantastic job, and the photography is what sets the project so far above what I hoped for. And if you for some reason aren't familiar with the GENIUS that is Angela Walters, you need to hop on board. No one is more skilled or thoughtful in their quilting, and Angela quilted all of the quilts in the book. And don't worry. There are plenty of gratuitous shots of her amazing work.
So. 1001 Peeps will be yours soon. The book takes a little longer to print than a pattern and will be shipping in 3 weeks. The presale starts NOW. At 9 AM Mountain Standard time. The first 10 people to pre-order, will receive 4 fat quarters of 1001 Peeps. And the first 20 will receive a special gift with their order.
