You guys. I’m writing a book. And today, I get to show you what it (might) look like! Since it’s not coming out ’till this October, things could change still, but for now, this is what the cover is going to look like(!!!).
I’m so excited. I’ve had some of these quilts in my head for YEARS, and I am so stoked to finally be able to get them out of my head on in photos and words! And, of course, in actual quilts! There is more information about Bedroom Style over at the Lucky Spool site, and it’s already on AMAZON, people.(Small freakout moment over here…) Of course, they’re still needing to update some details over there, but they’re taking preorders so YAY!
It’s been dreamy to work with Susanne and the girls at Lucky Spool, and I can’t wait for the final book. In the mean time though, I’m going to keep working my tail off to get it all these gorgeous quilts done. :)
Because I’m so excited, and because I’m up to my eyeballs in book fabric right now, I figured I’d share some of these goodies with you.
That’s right. I’m giving away some Fox Field by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. Why no, it’s NOT in stores yet.
I know you want some.
So here’s the deal. Not only am I super excited about my book coming out, but there’s another piece of news I’ve been sitting on for a while now, and well, it turns out that my bio over at Lucky Spool contains that little spoiler too. If you’d like to win one of these little bundles (12 Fat Eighths), head on over to the Lucky Spool site and check out my bio (and everyone else’s too–there are some awesome guys and gals publishing with LS!) and come back here and tell me what you think my other big news is! I’ll choose one winner from everyone who guesses my news right.
To win the other bundle, share my good news with your friends via Facebook or Instagram–and be sure to tag me (@amrosenthal on IG, Prairie Grass Patterns on FB) in your post so I see it! Be sure you’re following me in both places too! Comments will close Sunday night at 11:59PM MST, and I will announce 2 lucky ducks on Monday morning.
Holy crap is this exciting. I can’t wait.
