Last week I received a very exciting package in the mail. One that I had been looking forward to for such a long time. It is a wonderful new appliqué book.
But this is not just any book to me. Besides being a terrific "how to" bible for all kinds of appliqué techniques ranging from fusible to needleturn, it is written in a humorous easy to understand way, by my son Kevin Kosbab. I am just so delighted with the finished product! We spent many an hour on the phone discussing this book from its initial concept to completion and I am thrilled to have been a part of it. Since Kevin and I work in much the same manner it certainly reflects my appliqué techniques. Though the projects included in the book have a distinctly modern flair, the techniques themselves are applicable to any style of appliqué. And while I did machine quilt a few of the projects in the book, the rest of the work, including all of the appliqué was done by Kevin himself. Have I mentioned how excited I am and how proud!!
Next week, on Feb 26, I will be included in his blog tour and Kevin will be doing a guest post. I hope you will stop back then and get to know more about the book and my terrific, funny, creative son. Oh, and we'll have a giveaway too!
Finally just for a little eye candy, here is some of what I have been working on. First up, a few more pomegranate blocks have been stitched.
And part 5 of the Soupçon quilt is complete.
