It's Wednesday yet again and time to check in and share what we've been working on this week.
I hate to admit it, but I really haven't had much time for quilting, or even dyeing fabric this week. Instead I've been stuck to my computer adding the finishing touches to the new book.
I'm in part of this book project where everything left to do seems like it shouldn't take any time at all, when in fact, everything is super time consuming and complicated with lots of important decisions to be hammered out.
Speaking of important decisions, did I mention I'd finally settled on a title?! 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs. No, it's not going to win me any "best book title" awards, but at least it's clear what you're getting!
In order for Josh and my father-in-law, Chet, to edit this book properly, I had to print out a copy for us to work with. By punching holes in the sides, I was able to bind the book quite nicely into a 3 ring binder. Printing it out always makes things feel like they're finally coming together and this was quite a BIG book to come together!
After several hours of fiddling, I finally managed to create a cover I'm happy with:
On the whole, I'm feeling great about this book. I haven't let this project become an overwhelming nightmare, and I have tortured myself with it for months. Maybe I'm finally learning how to stay sane as a self publisher?!
Time to shut up, get off the computer, and go quilt!
