Bedroom Style: Perfectly Pieced + Giveaway + More News!

BedroomCoverAmazon3

 Ahem…

Drumroll please!

You guys. I’m writing a book. And today, I get to show you what it (might) look like! Since it’s not coming out ’till this October, things could change still, but for now, this is what the cover is going to look like(!!!).

I’m so excited. I’ve had some of these quilts in my head for YEARS, and I am so stoked to finally be able to get them out of my head on in photos and words! And, of course, in actual quilts! There is more information about Bedroom Style over at the Lucky Spool site, and it’s already on AMAZON, people.(Small freakout moment over here…) Of course, they’re still needing to update some details over there, but they’re taking preorders so YAY!

It’s been dreamy to work with Susanne and the girls at Lucky Spool, and I can’t wait for the final book. In the mean time though, I’m going to keep working my tail off to get it all these gorgeous quilts done. :)

Because I’m so excited, and because I’m up to my eyeballs in book fabric right now, I figured I’d share some of these goodies with you.

That’s right. I’m giving away some Fox Field by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. Why no, it’s NOT in stores yet.

I know you want some.

So here’s the deal. Not only am I super excited about my book coming out, but there’s another piece of news I’ve been sitting on for a while now, and well, it turns out that my bio over at Lucky Spool contains that little spoiler too. If you’d like to win one of these little bundles (12 Fat Eighths), head on over to the Lucky Spool site and check out my bio (and everyone else’s too–there are some awesome guys and gals publishing with LS!) and come back here and tell me what you think my other big news is! I’ll choose one winner from everyone who guesses my news right.

To win the other bundle, share my good news with your friends via Facebook or Instagram–and be sure to tag me (@amrosenthal on IG, Prairie Grass Patterns on FB) in your post so I see it! Be sure you’re following me in both places too! Comments will close Sunday night at 11:59PM MST, and I will announce 2 lucky ducks on Monday morning.

Holy crap is this exciting. I can’t wait.

Sweet Celebrations
 with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs
 (and a giveaway!)

Alright people, I’ve got news. Big news. See that really cute book up there? It’s the second Moda Bake Shop book! I’m super excited about it because I loved the first Bake Shop book, but I’m even more excited because I got to contribute to it! It’s been almost a year since I submitted proposals and started sewing, and now, finally, finally, I can tell you about it!

The premise of the book is really fun. It’s all centered around holidays and celebrations, with tons of unique projects for every season and every party. It comes out this fall (October) and I can’t wait to show you more! I’d love to show you my projects, but that’s still a surprise–so instead, you get to guess what I made! Or rather, you get to guess which holiday my project is for.

And believe me, you want to guess, because here’s what’s in it for you. A Junior Jelly Roll of Simply Color Ombre strips–part of my sweet friend Vanessa Christenson’s debut line with Moda. You really, really, want to get your hands on some of this. It’s fabulous I tell you. (And if you don’t win, you can buy it in October).

So. Make a comment telling me what holiday you think my project is for. I’ll give you a hint: I’ve blogged about celebrating it here in my home. Then, tell your friends to guess too, because if there are more than 100 guesses, I’ll throw another prize into the mix.

Like I said, you’re going to want to tell your friends. Blog about it, Facebook it, Tweet it, whatever you have to do. ‘Cause you really want a chance at this Fat Eighth Bundle of Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. If there aren’t a hundred entries, well, I’m going to keep it for myself (orange fabric!) and you’ll be the sad, sad, person waiting until October to get your hands on it.

Guess away my friends! (I’m so excited for this book, and these fabrics! October is going to be awesome!)

PS You have until next Tuesday, July 31st at 11:59pm MST to enter.

EDIT: Contest closes Sunday, August 5th at 11:59pm MST.

I’m going to wait a few more days to draw winners–because I realized, I already have my own bundle of Marmalade! This one is for you guys! That gives you plenty of time to spam everyone you know into entering. ;) Winner(s) will be announced Monday, August 6th. One entry per person, please. Good luck!
PPS Did you see my post yesterday? You really should hang out with me on Instagram. Fun times.
