Today we are starting a month long tour of our new book, The Simple Simon Guide to Patchwork Quilting. Don’t worry, there will still be regularly-scheduled posts and great tutorials that are coming up (we have a few lined up that are summer-inspired and even a new pattern or two 🙂 But, every Tuesday and Thursday during the month of June some new and old quilting friends will be sharing different aspects of the new book. Some will be projects, some will be a little more about the book and some will be giveaways (so be on the lookout!)
First up on our tour today is a dear friend and mentor that we met a few years ago at a baby lock event called Common Threads. It was an event to bring together Industry Professionals and some new bloggers and we felt so unworthy to even get an invitation. I remember when we walked in the room that first night that both liZ and I were SUPER intimidated because there standing in front of us was the one and only Nancy Zieman. I think we must have looked completely bewildered and ridiculous, but she was so gracious and kind and walked right over to us and introduced herself. It was one of those moments that I will never forget. We both have looked up to her for years and to get to chat with her in person was a real treat. She is ever the sewing superstar, but ever the most personable and gracious person I have ever met.
So, join us over at Nancy Zieman’s Blog..…where we share a little more about the inspiration of where the book came from, more about us and you will even find out what liZ’s favorite quilt in the book is as well as mine. And there is a GIVEAWAY for Patchwork Quilting quilting book involved….so be sure to head over and enter!
See you over THERE!!!
