Hello and happy Thursday! I’m stopping in quickly today to let you know about something that I’ve been waiting to share! I have a new book coming out in June, and today is the day I can share the Sunday Best Quilts cover reveal!
Sunday Best Quilts
Sunday Best Quilts, published by Martingale, will be available in June 2019 and is a collection of 12 different quilt projects. My friend Corey Yoder and I have teamed up to bring you a collection of “must make” quilts from our personal bucket lists! We’ve had so much fun working on this project and sharing tips and ideas with you for these favorite quilts!
While Corey and I both used our own fabrics in some of the quilts, we also had fun sewing with each other’s fabrics and with a variety of other collections for the projects in our book. We can’t wait to be able to share more, but for now, we can talk a little bit about the cover quilts!
Sunday Best Quilts Projects
Our book features two quilts each (one by me and one by Corey) for each of six different quilt “categories.” The book cover shows our pineapple quilts (mine on the left and Corey’s on the right). Fun Fact: We designed all of our projects without sharing them with each other until the designs were finalized. It was so much fun to see the different presentations of each of our chosen quilt styles. And there are ten more projects included in the book that we love just as much! (You can see little sneak peeks of four of the others at the top of the cover–two of Corey’s on the left and two of mine to the right)
The photography in the book is absolutely stunning–I can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are with the page layouts and photos. It’s been so fun to see it all come to life. And I just checked Amazon…and Sunday Best Quilts is already available for pre-order here. I’ll also be doing pre-orders for signed copies as publication draws closer!
Okay…well, that’s it for the Sunday Best Quilts cover reveal…I can’t wait to share more! I’ll be back tomorrow with the next edition of my “Sew Your Stash” series. Thanks so much for stopping by…
Wonderful sneak peek of your new book! I’m excited to see more. Congratulations to you and Corey!
I know the process for designing, creating, writing and published a quilt book is quite a processs, so congratulations! I love your sense of color – your fabric choices for blocks are some of my favorite.
Can’t wait to put this in my shop!!!!

How exciting! Already pre-ordered the book on Amazon!
That’s Awesome!!! Congrats, it’s going to be a big seller. I can’t wait, June seems SO far away as I look out my window at the 1st Blizzard of 2019. But, we all know how time flies ?

Ohhhh my, those cover quilts are gorgeous! I can’t wait to see the rest. Congratulations to you and Corey. What a great collaboration.
I look forward to the book, as I love your use of color and design! I’d pre-order, but I want to wait to get one signed by you.

I’m really excited about this book as I love both of your fabrics and quilt designs! Congratulations to both of you!
Love reading you daily updates! Congrats on the new book. Can’t wait for it to come out.
Congrats to your new book and I can’t wait to see the quilts!
You and Corey are two of the top three designers represented in my stash (the other is 3 Sisters). I will look forward to getting this book!
Susan the Farm Quilter says
Congratulations on the book!! Love how you both have such different interpretations of the same pattern!!
Beth T. says
What a fun way to do it! And I always love to see how different people/personalities interpret different quilt patterns. That helps me envision how I might personalize a pattern myself, so it really does motivate me to choose one book over another. While I love seeing books that focus on specific designers whose styles I admire, when I’m trying to plan a quilt that reflects my own style, seeing a quilt made a couple of different ways, or seeing a type of quilt done by a couple of different people, is really helpful to me in prompting me to see what it is about it that I like most or that speaks most to me.
Melanie Magnusson says
Can not wait to get this book! I would love to get a signed copy with both of you and Corey’s signatures!!! Are you going to have those available?
Monica Kostak says
Congratulations! How Exciting. 🙂

I am LOVING this series! This is exactly what I am working towards for 2019. I would love to know who Holly is and how to get her worksheets on inventory, planning etc that you mentioned in this week’s post. Also, where did you find the wire drawers? I think I need those! Looking forward to the next post! Thanks for all your tips!
