From Feathers to Flames Launches!

Is it already September 1?! This date has been marked on my calendar for so long, it almost doesn't feel real!

free motion quilting | Leah Day I've been anticipating this day all summer because today is the day we launch the physical version of From Feathers to Flames!

You can now pre-order a copy at the Day Style Designs Quilt Shop and be one of the first to receive your book when they start shipping on September 20th.

Here's a few photos from this new book:

free motion quilting | Leah DayAs you can see, instead of quilted samples of each design, you now have a digital drawing with an arrow to show you where to get started. On certain designs, I've also included blue or red lines to indicate the starting line.

A few designs are also graphed out step by step over 2 pages:

The extra graphs and instructions should help to make sense of even the most difficult designs in this book.

Keep in mind, we also have a DIGITAL version of this book that launched last month. If you'd rather get your copy immediately and save on the cost of shipping, make sure to check out the downloadable copy instead.

Let's go quilt,
