We’re a step closer! I’m happy to share that you can now pre-order your copy of my upcoming release of Modern Wool: 12 Projects to Get You Stitching right on my website. If you’d like a signed copy, be sure to drop me note in the comments on your order. Anticipated date is currently March 25, 2021!
You can also pre-order a copy directly with C&T Publishing or – and this is a BIG ONE – go to your favorite local quilt shop – ask them to preorder a copy for you and help support their shop! There are so many ways to use your consumer dollars in important ways, especially now while so many small businesses are struggling.
There are 12 projects, but there is a double bonus because I featured both a low-volume and a dark version of every project! Thinking about how we see color and how colors appear on dark or light backgrounds, all became part of my exploration of wool along with combining wool with modern, mixed cotton fabrics for all of the backgrounds. I think it’s fascinating how the exact same color in the applique shapes can change appearance, all by just changing the background! Here’s an example of what I mean:
This is the project called “Rest” in both the dark and light versions. It’s my take on traditional penny wool projects and the wool pennies are exactly the same in both versions. The only difference is in the background fabrics I chose. Colors can appear to recede or advance with a simple change in the background creating so many wonderful design opportunities in your projects! Here are some more quick images of some of the projects:
I’ll definitely be sharing more images and details about each of the 12 projects as we count down to publication but most importantly wanted to share that you can now pre-order your copy now.
Be well my friends and happy stitching,
