This is so exciting ! Every since I started designing quilts I have had the dream of writing a book to share my designs. It has now become a reality, dreams do come true afterall. Being an avid collector of quilting books, always curious about the authors and their methods. I now finally will have a book on my book shelf that is written by me.
The book 'Autumn Bouquet' has twelve quilt patterns, and gives you two methods of invisible machine applique where I have been able to share my tips and tricks for the applique methods I use.

This is what Martingale are saying about my book.
'This collection of dreamy quilts bursts with fabrics from the scrap basket! Classic patchwork provides a backdrop for pretty flowers and twining vines, all made easy with machine-applique. Learn two ways to prepare appliques, plus tips and tricks for setting up your machine for applique.
Dozens of close-up photos and tips reveal secrets for mingling antique-style fabrics ranging from blushing pinks and soft purples to rich golds, reds, and browns. From small wall quilts to lap-sized designs, this bouquet of quilts is simple to sew--yet so extraordinary, the quilts you make will be handed down from generation to generation.'
I can now give you a preview of whats inside, and the lovely quilts I hope you enjoy making. I am so looking forward to seeing all that you do with the patterns in my book.

How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
