Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature's Elements



It's almost here! I'm so excited to be able to start sharing more about my upcoming book release, Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature's Elements, published so graciously by Martingale / That Patchwork Place.


Beyond Neutral features 16 of my original quilt patterns featuring some of my favorite designs and fabric combinations inspired by the colors of our environment. Think of colors drawn from earth, grass, leaves, sky, water, coral, and lava. And all of the quilts are spectacularly photographed in some of the most beautiful natural settings in the Pacific Northwest that I've ever seen.




I'll be sharing more images, sneak peeks, and stories about the book in coming weeks. In the meantime, the book is available for pre-order on Amazon with a scheduled release date of May 6th.

Get excited!
