Happy Monday, everyone! Jocelyn here, and I get to bring you some wonderful news!
We are so, so, so incredibly pleased to be introducing you to our newest
author, Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs, and her upcoming book. (YES, I know -- we love her too!) She has been a huge force in the quilting industry for years, and
we are beyond blessed to be able to work with her on her new creation.
Why we are so happy to work with her is a no-brainer. All of her quilts are gorgeous, amazing, stunning, and fresh. She is charming, intelligent, passionate and a consummate professional. All of these lovely things have been funneled into her upcoming book with It's Sew Emma, Quilted Living!
Quilted Living is a mixture of projects that sighs "summertime". Whenever I hear "summertime", I go straight to Ella Fitzgerald's song... "Summertime, and the living is easy..." This book creates that awesome, bright, comfortable, casual feeling of the season.

More than just quilts, you'll find tablerunners and cushions, all of which are based on simple blocks anyone can master. They also
feature her next fabric collection, Summer Cottage from Red Rooster
Fabrics, and with it she blends in a fun, full-color palette with a classic red, white and blue trio, to include our patriotic summer holidays.
Even MORE than that, Gerri has designed her Americana projects to meld together to create an entirely new sampler quilt. It is such a neat concept you'll have to see for yourself!
