I introduced you to Deborah Boschert yesterday. Now I’d like to introduce you to her first book.
Art Quilt Collage
I saw this and had to giggle because I know exactly what she’s feeling…. CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S HERE!! Writing a book is a ton of work. You write and organize and write and make artwork for months. Then all kinds of things happen with the editors. Then things get quiet. Then – IT ARRIVES! Look at how tight her fingers are on that book – you just know she is standing still for the picture just bursting like a puppy dog ready to jump all over the place!!!!
And this book is a sweet thing of beauty. There are all the usual art quilt chapters on supplies, construction techniques, and finishing. But i also has intriguing chapters on personal symbols, inspiration, and my favorite:
Deborah and I had a little chat about my favorite chapter in her book that you can watch here.
You can order her book on Amazon here
Or if you really love the artist – Deborah has signed copies available in her Etsy shop. As a thank you for buying the book directly from her, she is giving away pieces of original surface designed fabrics with the first 50 sales. Here’s the etsy link. (And did you know – when you order from Amazon the author gets pennies. If you have the option ALWAYS buy directly from the artist.)
I will also be giving away a copy of the book on Sept 30th! In order to enter the giveaway contest you need to leave a comment here on this blog. Make sure I have a way to contact you! I’ll pull a name from a hat on the morning of the 30th. Tell me:
What is your most difficult issue with design?
You can learn about other chapters of the book and enter a comment for a chance to win a copy of Deborah’s book on each of these blogs until September 30th.
