Make It, Take It!

I am so excited to let you know that my friend Krista's (Poppyprint) fantastic new book, Make It, Take It! will be available to buy on February 10 at the Martingale shop (go here). When you buy a copy from Martingale, you get both the hard copy and the digital download, which is a valuable bonus if you plan to use this book for sewing with friends as you can easily bring a copy on your ipad or other digital device.

Besides being a book by one of the nicest quilters I know, I am so excited as I am a contributor to this book too! The Half Moon Needle Case is my project in the book. There will be a blog hop for the book in the spring, and I will share more about this little project then.

That's Krista, with one of the beautiful projects she designed together with Krista Withers. Make it, Take it! debuts at QuiltCon, where you will can meet Krista and purchase an autographed copy. Look for Krista at two book signings: 
    • Saturday: 10:30 a.m., Island Quilter,  booth #109
    • Saturday: 1:00 p.m., Modern Cottons/The Quilt Haus, booth #306
And if you've already pre-ordered the book, stop and see her for an autographed book plate - of course, she has a plan to take care of everyone. 

I know you are going to love this book.
