The Krista Connection

The Make It, Take It bloghop continues today with more chances to win a copy of the book and more opportunities to learn about the inspiration behind the projects!  You can read about Krista Fleckenstein's handy Crafter's Apron here. I just love all of the prints she paired with Essex linen, resulting in a super-stylish apron you can wear at home or on retreat.

Keep your readers, scissors & marking tools handy!

Krista Withers is sharing her work in the book today (here) as well.  She's written a two page essay in the book outlining her Ghost Quilting technique and explaining how she goes about planning, auditioning and marking quilt designs. You'll see her masterful quilting on the Stepping Stones table runner and the Orange Grove quilt, both found in the second section of the book.

Have a look at Krista's blog for process photos and a lot more quilting!

I hope you're enjoying learning more about each designer's project on the tour this week. The support and excitement for the book has been amazing. I thank you!!!

We need some of those aprons for our Quilts of Valor booths. Everyone is always forgetting scissors, etc, since we don't bring our own machines (they are loaners from another booth). I had to buy scissors and a seam ripper last week.
