Many congratulations to my good friend Debra Gabel! She is an amazingly talented designer, and one of the hardest working people I know. In December her first book, Quilt Blocks Across America, was released by C&T.
The book contains applique patterns for all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. All of the patterns are included on a CD that comes with the book. The blocks can be combined to create a travelogue of where you've visited or lived. It's a wonderful resource, and of course you could pick and choose images from different blocks and combine them to make an applique design that's unique. Way to go Debra!
Happy New Year!
