It's True!

As some of you have already guessed, I'm working on a new book. What gave it away? Was it the hundreds of 2 1/2" strips stacked up and ready to sew? The pictures of the divine Jelly Rolls? Like Scrap-Basket Surprises, all of the quilts are made with 2 1/2" strips. I'll be sure to give you the details soon and let you know when it will be available so you'll have plenty of time to collect a gazillion strips!

In the meantime, I'll be showing you little sneak peeks of the projects. Like this one:

A sea of red half-square triangle units waiting to be sewn together.

Stop by again Tuesday -- I have something fun to share with you!

Happy Stitching!
Kim
