Quilter's Desk Diary 2012 has arrived
D & C's 'Quilter's Desk Diary 2012' has just arrived with me. Like last year's successful desk diary (so successful it had sold out by August) this one features a quilt or quilted project per week spread - obviously, there isn't space for the actual instructions (although instructions for 'Hidden in the Stars', one of the Jelly Roll quilt series is included at the back), but the diary is laden with eye candy to inspire you each week. It is hardback, with 128 pages and full colour throughout.
My 'Shimacho' quilt from 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match' is on the cover (see above) and there are quite a few other pieces of mine from various books -
I can't show photos of the quilts from other D & C authors here, but there are works by Barbara Chainey, Lynne Edwards, Katherine Gurrier, Mary Jenkins, Gail Lawther and Laura Kemshall, among others. The 1718 coverlet from the Quilt Museum, York, also features.
How to order it? I'm offering copies - signed of course, if you like - by mail order, starting now, while stocks last. The cover price is £9.99, and postage & packing in the UK, second class, will be £2.20. By Air Mail Printed Paper, all Europe is £4.70, rest of world is £8.00. UK buyers - please use the contact details and order form on my website to pay by cheque. Overseas (and anyone without a cheque book!) can use Paypal to send a payment - my Paypal e mail address is the same as the one on the contact page on my website.
