About this project
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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes! I design and create the quilts from the cutting to the quilting.
Each quilt usually has at least one ethnic frabric in it. Even if the image on the quilt isn't African most of my fabrics are. Several years of trading with other quilters, sometimes shopping fabric stores, or gifts of fabric from travels. My sewing room has a quilt shop stash!
Nope, I have two regular (domestic) table top sewing machines.
YES! All of my quilts are handmade. Even if I use the sewing machine to quilt the background, the piece is still handmade and will always have some hand sewing on it. Any of the embellishments on the quilts are sewn on by hand as well.
NO. This is a book of beautiful photographs, trivia, history, and inspiring & thought provoking quotes by famous people from around the world. It would be a GREAT gift for anyone who loves those things!
