A New Book!

Wednesday, April 17, 2013


     Our latest project is finally coming together! This one is going to be published by the Kansas City Star Quilts and will be available at spring quilt market. Even though Bob Deck, our book designer,  isn't quite finished with our book design, I wanted to give you a sneak peak at our cover. This book is full of quilts and other projects too.



     We photographed the projects at The Vintage House in Overland Park, KS. It was a very fun day working with Aaron Leimkuehler and Edie McGinnis. We showed up at the house without really knowing how we would display the projects. A bit of spontaneity became creative fun as we looked around the house finding the perfect spot to photograph each project.We couldn't go wrong as the house was so cute. Don't quilts make every house look warm and inviting?
 

Stitches Unlimited from Lancaster, PA, gave us a call to notify us of an error in the chart Honeybee Hill. The word experience is misspelled. The correction is above. We are very sorry for the error!

Linzee from Moda's Cutting Table did a write up about Blackbird Designs on Saturday, April 13. Click on the link for her posting and then take a visit to Linzee's blog site and read about her latest trip.

Until later dear friends!

  6. The new book looks great.

    And the house you are showing... just lovely.

    These American houses have something that gives you a very warm feeling. They are so different from the houses here.

    And what I like the most is the inside space and the porches/verandas.

  25. Japan's very interesting. Some people think it copies things. I don't think that anymore. I think what they do is reinvent things. They will get something that's already been invented and study it until they thoroughly understand it. In some cases, they understand it better than the original inventor.

  27. Though beauty gives you a weird sense of entitlement, it's rather frightening and threatening to have others ascribe such importance to something you know you're just renting for a while.
