Great Granny Squared Book is Here!!! ...


YaY!!!
It's here!!!
I'm sew excited:)


Yesterday thousands of copies of my newest book
 were delivered to 
Chelsey sent me this
 photo of the unloading...



and the opening of the first box!
Kimberly overnighted several copies to me...


and just a little bit ago I got my first peek:)


I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!
The photos for the book were taken here…
inside my little cottage:)
I'll show you pics from the photo shoot next week:)


All of the projects in the book are made from my new collection...


It will be arriving and ready 
for release in about a week!
YaY again!!!


Fat Quarter Shop is offering kits
 for all of the projects in the book.


for more info on the kits
 and to be notified when 
Vintage Happy arrives!!!

I'm so glad the book is finally here…
it is always such a
 labor of love
 creating something new.


Of course…
I couldn't have done it
 without the help of
and the girls at

and a few friends
who helped me with some of the sewing ...
Judy, Shanna and Kim.


And a special thanks to my sweet daughter
Kassidy Grace 
who did the embroidery 
on the quilt labels:)


I hope you enjoy my latest book ...
xx
Lori


Pin It!

I guess too much wind and snow in the air, but if it were a clear day....! Anyway I'm really excited - this was the very first block intro I had to your blog - then the row along and they are very special to me! Again thank you for going ahead with these books.
