Katie Pasquini-Masopust's Latest Book

I took a class from Katie PM in 2009.  What a class and what a teacher!  Katie's latest book is now out:
INSPIRATIONS IN DESIGN FOR THE CREATIVE QUILTER.  I am particularly fond of this book because (1) the methods taught in the book are those that Katie was teaching our class and (2) my quilt that was started in her class appears on p. 24!  It is most exciting to me, a novice art quilter, that one of my quilts is now "out there" in a book by a well-known and highly-respected quilt artist and teacher.

I discussed this quilt in an earlier post:


Here's a photo of the quilt as it looks hanging in our bedroom.  You can't tell from the photo, but our walls are painted a pale aqua.  I love the color obviously!

Portrait Quilt: Part Nine--Finished at Last!

Today was a red letter day.  I finished sewing down the binding on the back of the quilt.  My good friend Judy quilted it for me.  I had quilted the first quilt I made from this photo, but time was running short and I had another quilt to finish for yet another birthday present.  (This portrait quilt is for our daughter's 40th birthday.  Her two sons are the little boys on the left, with their cousin on the right.)

Anyway, here it is, finished at last!

And now, here are some close-up views of the quilt:
