My first book, a pattern pack and booklet named Appliqué Petal Party: A bouquet of 16 blocks & flowering border, was released by C&T Publishing in October 2009. It includes full-size patterns for the sixteen 12-1/2" blocks and the scalloped floral border in the Pink Petal Party quilt, plus a booklet with my needle turn applique basics and step-by-step instructions for the quilt, which is 73" square. Everything is packaged in an envelope, so the patterns are easy to pull out and use. You can make the whole quilt or use one block as a pillow or wall hanging. It’s also perfect as a block-of-the-month project.

My second book, Point, Click, Quilt! Turn Your Photos into Fabulous Fabric Art, was released by C&T Publishing in July 2011. It includes 16 artful projects inspired by my digital photographs.

Learn to compose and shoot dynamic digital photos from a quilter’s perspective. Then, follow the fun workshop-style exercises and step-by-step directions to turn your photos into small art quilts, both realistic and abstract. Most of my projects use fused batik and hand-dyed fabrics, but four projects include innovative materials (paint, Tyvek, Angelina fibers, and foils). You’ll also be inspired by the gallery section of the book, which includes beautiful work by other gifted art quilters I know. 112 pages.

Out of print. Available through C&T Publishing as an e-book ($19.95), or print-on-demand paper copy ($29.95).
