It's time again for a new Book of the Month! Rachel Griffith of PS I Quilt is here today to tell you a little bit about our December Book of the Month, Quilts Made with Love. We have a special video from Quilt Market, a bunch of photos, and a big giveaway, so sit right down and let's get started! And don't forget, the Book of the Month is 20% off all month!
To start this off, we wanted to bring you right back to Quilt Market, where Quilts Made with Love made it's debut. Watch this video of Rachel's Schoolhouse presentation and get a closer look at the quilts in the book before we dive in.
I’m so very excited to talk to y’all about my first book, Quilts Made with Love.
We’ve all experienced life events.
These events, good or bad, make up our lives.
Think about all the events that have happened in or around your life within the last year.
Your friend expecting her first baby, your cousin getting married, your neighbor passing away, or your grandson receiving orders for deployment.
I’m willing to bet, you can personally relate to one, if not more, of these occasions.
My inspiration for Quilts Made with Love came from the all-occasion greeting card boxes that my grandmothers like to have on hand.
Your grandmother had boxes of those things, right?
Thought so. ;)
|It Takes Two|
As a quilter, I wanted to be able to open a book and pick the appropriate quilt for whatever situation I was faced with—just as my grandmothers would choose a card from the assortment.
The occasions featured in Quilts Made with Love cover everything from birth to loss. (The non-holiday events.)
Need a quilt for a retirement gift? It’s there.
Need a quilt for a sick parent? It’s there, too.
And there are many more.
The quilts in my book are accessible to quilters of all ages, and will appeal to both the modern and traditional quilter. I pride myself on being a nowadays quilter. (Someone that mixes traditional and modern.)
So, whether this is your first quilt book or your 100th, I hope it will become instantly usable.
I can’t wait for y’all to hold it your hands and make quilts that celebrate and provide comfort to your friends and your family.
