The mailman left a very nice packet yesterday:
It's a copy of Nine Patch Panache published by House of White Birches, and features my Clowning Around quilt. It's a lovely big book - 176 pages and 44 projects - all based on nine patch blocks. The blocks run the gamut from plain squares to disappearing nine patch with nine patch stars, and nine patch sashing. Editor Carolyn Vagts has done a terrific job choosing an interesting variety of projects to include.
My quilt Clowning Around uses nine patch blocks set on the diagonal for sashing a Southern Star compass. The points in between have embroidered eyes peeking out from under colourful clown hats.
You can purchase this newly-released book online from Clotilde in either traditional printed format or as a pdf download. In Canada, you can find the book at any Chapters/Indigo/Coles location.
I think this makes 16 books now to which I have contributed projects. It's always a special delight when one turns out as beautiful as this one.
