Start spreading the news


I haven't mentioned this before, and you all know I can't keep a secret (I'm pretty sure you already know my next 3 patterns), so I have been bursting to be able to share with you that one of my brand new projects is going to be in a book! This lovely gal's book, to be precise. Rashida has put together an amazing group of crafters that I am so proud to be a part of. And after seeing a few preview photos, I know I'm going to want to make every single project in the book.


Here's the part where I tell you that you have a chance to win a copy of Zakka Style: Head on over to Stash Books and enter today! You have until Sunday, December 11 to enter. (By the way, my project is the round hot pads in the lower right-hand picture in the first photo collection.)

You can purchase the e-book right now, look for it in your local quilt or book shop soon (the books are just now beginning to ship), or pre-order Zakka Style through Amazon. I'll squeeze in a link on my sidebar, too.

Happy zakka-making!

P.S. I am an Amazon affiliate. If you purchase anything through one of my links to Amazon on this blog, I will earn a wee commission on the sale, as in, a few cents. Just so you know :)


  1. Congratulations! This book looks really cute. It's on my list for sure.

  2. Congrats! I have been counting down until this book is released! Can't wait.

  3. From the photos I've seen, I'm LOVING this book! Wow. Good on you, something most definitely to be proud of ♥

  4. Bought the ebook last nite. Super patterns. I didn't realize you could not print any of the patterns/templates. If you purchase the book, buy the set so you can get the templates. Now to go order the hard copy. I like it that much.

  5. Lorraine, thanks for the heads up about printing the patterns with the ebook! I wasn't even aware that the book was available electronically until yesterday, so hopefully your info will help folks decide which version of the book they want. I'm so glad that you like the book!

  6. Fantastic! I've been reading great things about the book. Congrats!

  7. Awesome is all I can say! I adore your pattern and made 6 of them last week. I'll be sure to link back to you! :)
