My big news!


Here it is, my big news … C&T Publishing is releasing my first title in October 2009!

It is called Appliqué Petal Party: A bouquet of 16 blocks & flowering border. It will include full-size patterns for all 16 of the 12-1/2" blocks and the scalloped floral border in the quilt shown below, plus a booklet with my needle turn applique basics and step-by-step instructions for the quilt, which is 73" square. Everything is packaged in an envelope, so the patterns are easy to pull out and use. It will retail for $17.95.







I’m very grateful to some of my appliqué friends who contributed to the book by doing some of the blocks in their own color combinations (as hard as it is for me to believe, some people are not as crazy about pink as I am!). I also offer a big thank-you to all the wonderful people at C&T Publishing who have helped me.

I’ll be posting details about the book as I find out more.

If you want to pre-order an autographed copy, just e-mail me at susan@bluemoonriver.com, and I'll put you on a list to contact in October with more information!
