I've been told by my publisher that the copies of Quilt Me! have now arrived and should be sent out very soon (the same applies to the US). I know that the publication date changed from January 2nd and was put back to the 16th but I just want to say that these things are completely out of my hands, that publishers and stockists do all they can to get new books in and out as fast as they can, and that Amazon publication dates are often set months and months in advance when a listing is created and that the whole process is not an exact science.
But anyway, Quilt Me! is Quilt Me Now! It's full of quilts made from all sorts of inspirational fabrics and there's a fabric directory that covers a huge number of possibilities you may not have considered (needlepoint? tweed? cord?). There is nothing complicated in here; the designs are all simple, there are lots of strips, squares, rectangles and lengths, and once again it's the fabrics that play the leading role in the quilts. They all begin with a fabric that has shouted 'quilt me!' and I have gone from there. (And there are some very nice words from Kathy Doughty on the back cover.)
Collins & Brown have very kindly offered five copies of Quilt Me! to give away here and are happy to send the books anywhere in the world, so this is open to everyone. All you have to do to be in with a chance of receiving a copy of the book is to leave a comment below letting me know what your favourite fabric is. It doesn't have to be a fabric for quilting, just a fabric you love. And please leave your name and an email address. The comments will close on Friday 24 January at 6pm GMT.
