The Final Fast-Piece Applique Blog Tour Stop

It all comes back to me!

And, I am pretty jazzed that my books made it across the ocean and through customs & through the dock workers slow down in Seattle, in time for their actual release date. My books and the shop owner books have been shipped -- so next week I'll be signing & sending out all the pre-orders. (there is still a very small window - 1/20 is cut-off to order from me to get a signed copy & the free Free-Falling pattern.) FYI-Books ship to Amazon next week -- so they'll be able to start filling their pre-orders after that.

Phew!!!

What a grand two weeks this has been. The sharings of my fellow quilt peeps along with all the give away fun. I wished for each of you an opportunity to see all the ins & outs of my new book and a bunch of chances to win an e-book. I also wished for each of you the opportunity to pick up for free twelve #loveletterhearts so that you would have enough to make three long panels if you choose -- like mine.
Some of the stops have already chosen winners for their e-book give-away, but several are still underway.

Each stop though, still has their pattern give-away posted so I will be giving you the direct links to their postings along with their give-away cut off dates and a reminder of their WORD just in case you are starting the tour today.

As you read this I will be catching another plane -- this time to Miami where I'll be spending the weekend with the Ocean Waves Quilters. I'm hoping for a opportunity to run through my old neighborhood (Miami Beach) and put my feet into the waters of the Atlantic. I used to be one of those crazies that went down to the beach to watch the sun come up, but since I will not have a car of my own I probably will not be able to cross this off my list. I will be sure to take pictures & report back if I do!

Meanwhile...

  3. Thank you so much for this blog hop and sharing your blocks with us. I just love the 3-panel tree quilt at the top of your blog. Yep, that's what I'm going to make - one for myself and one for a charity quilt auction we have every year. Thanks again for sharing your talents.

  5. Thank you for writing this book to share your wonderful unique applique technique. I love the couching of yarns and the use of beading to embellish your work. I have a picture that I plan to try this technique out. I also want to thank you for this fun trip through other web sites with interesting people and talents and great things that they are sharing. I even subscribed to a few. Looking forward to getting your book and thank you for this wonderful opportunity to learn and share.

  11. I was a late starter to the blog hop but am really excited to try your way of applique after watching your video. You make it look so quick and easy. I'd love to win a copy of your book so I can try it myself. Thank you so much for all the great words. I did go back and collect all of those. They will be fun to use.

  13. What a fun two weeks it has been! I so enjoy seeing your multitude of works and meeting your friends. I dream of making the perfect "Purple Mountain Majesty" art quilt ~ ~ You and your books are wonderful inspiration for everything I make. I can't wait to see your book.

  15. Congratulations Rose! So exciting to see your new book out. Honestly, I'm not sure what I would like to do with fast piece applique! My mind is full right now, figuring out the commissioned quilt I need to start (with t-shirts) and as the just-past-president of TLC Quilters, getting going on the new President's quilt (she wants an old fashioned 2" squares sort of postage stamp quilt). Once I'm done with those though, I know we'll be having a new challenge at guild that I could use it on! OXO
