You have no idea how excited l am to bring you all this news.
2 years ago l was fortunate enough to be present at a dinner
held for Kay Triplett in Houston. The purpose of the dinner was for Carol
from Quiltmania to chose some of Kay's antique quilts to make a new book.
Quilt after magnificent quilt flashed under our eyes,
each and every one brought gasps of delight.
Finally that dream has been realised, and the following book is the result.
And the timing could not be more perfect,
with our own Quilts In The Barn's exhibition in 3 weeks,
with our theme "All About Chintz."
This is a very happy co-incidence, that the new book is called Chintz Quilts
and our exhibition will feature Chintz quilts from around the world.
The book has 324 pages, filled with the history of chintz quilts,
and stunning photos to examine and enthral us.
Just the front cover makes you want to open the book and explore it's inner pages.
l know l can hardly wait to have a copy of this book in my hands.
Its a large book, weighing around 1.8kg, and will cost around $95.
What a treasure this book will be, and deserves
to be on each and every Antique Quilt Lovers bookcase.
Final cost is to be determined once we know postage costs.
Any profit made after costs will be donated to Breast Cancer Research.
My only dilemma is
"How many to have sent out in time for our exhibition?"
l need to give Quiltmania my order SOON!!
If you would like to place an advance order for the new Chintz Quilts book,
please contact me, by either leaving a comment, or a direct email.
Books will be available for collection across the QITB weekend, and for
several weeks after by arrangement.
Due to additional postage costs, l won't be able to re-post them.
Enjoy the photos below, and don't forget to click on them for a closer look!!
Here is a link to some more pages from the book.
We are also having some 2014 Diary's sent with the order.
One of Di Ford's beautiful quilts grace the front cover.
Cost will be around $20.
If you want to take the photos and advertise it on your blog,
with a link back here, please do, as the more books we sell,
the more we all raise for Breast cancer Research.
And in advance, thank you!!
Thanks for visiting.
