My heart is about to burst from a surprise I’ve been keeping!
I’m overjoyed to share with you a project that I’ve been working on that is dear to me. I am so pleased to introduce you to the cover of Dolly, my new book with Riley Blake Designs arriving this summer!
This book is near to my heart, friends. Inspired by the sweet rag dolls made for me by my grandmother over 35-years ago, and my very first sewing projects making little things for my dolls. The Dolly book includes a pattern for my rag doll (pictured above) and variety of other doll-inspired projects, including a dollhouse play quilt, a charming cottage tote, a playful pillow and even a little mini quilt for Dolly. Most of the projects can be made in an afternoon and are perfect for both beginner and intermediate sewists. And above all else, I hope the love and inspiration that guided this book shine through – and bring so much joy and inspiration to you!
I am even more tickled to show you what’s inside the cover. I will be sharing several of the projects in this book for the first time at Quilt Market next weekend and invite you to stop by and see the goodies inside, if you’ll be at market, too. I’ll also be sharing peeks of the projects in the coming weeks here and more on Instagram, too.
So before I close, how about one little more surprise to end this BIG surprise?!
Dolly will only be available at independent retailers and quilt shops (both brick and mortar and online) and pre-orders are now available through Riley Blake. I’d be ever so grateful to learn about your favorite quilts shops, and introduce them to Dolly, too. If you’re on Instagram, join me over at the post where you find the book cover above and tag your favorite quilt shop. I’m giving away the very first copy of Dolly I get in my sweet little hands – to one random-picked participant that tags their favorite quilt shop on that post.
Dolly is planned to arrive late July 2017 and I would love to wrap this book in a ribbon and a hug and send it straight to you. You can enter for a chance to win the Dolly book on Instagram through the close of Quilt Market at 4pm on Sunday, May 21st. If there is more than one shop that you love, tag them both for an additional chance to win. Thank you, sweet friends, for helping me share Dolly, and for sharing your favorite shops with me, too.
I’m so excited to show you what’s inside beyond the little pigtails of the rag doll you can make on the cover. Hope to see your cute faces at quilt market for an in-person peek!
