http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSc4vvqMMMs The quilts featured in the video are just a few of the ethnic themed, original designs that will be in this unique and informative book. Most of the quilts are inspired by African folktales or celebrations of Black History. Each quilt will be photographed showing close up details. There are also inspirational quotes with each image. This book would be a beautiful addition to any art collectors library and will make a wonderful gift.

Risks and challenges

All of the quilts will first be professionally photographed, then formatted with the text and submitted to the publisher. I will be at the mercy of the photographer and then the publisher as far as turn around time for the finished book, but their initial estimates should allow me to have the books by May. At that time "Quilted Pages" will be available through Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Kindle, and eBook!
