shipping now!

eeek!

The official release date wasn't until May 1st, but our book is shipping early - so if you have pre-ordered you should be expecting your copy any day now.

Amazon.com has the book in stock, whereas the UK site is still a little bit behind and showing the book as out of stock, but it should be shipping within the next week or so.

There are 60 blocks and 12 projects in the book, each chapter uses a particular shape as a theme and there are 10 blocks per chapter, and 2 projects - one of which is a large quilt, and the other is a smaller project.

Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop - the BOOK!

We worked so hard on everything, and hope you love it as much as we do. Personally I think there's a great balance between simple and more advanced blocks and projects - hopefully something for everything and every skill level.

This is one of the quilts I made - called orange soda. It doesn't look as big in this picture as it actually is, it's twin sized so that is a big wall it's hanging on.

You have no idea how excited I am to see my name on the cover along with 3 of my very best friends. It's like a fairytale, it really is. I feel so blessed to have these guys as my friends and to have this permanent piece of history to forever remind me of this time in my life.

I really do hope you love it too!
