NTT and a Big Reveal

Hey there, friends!  Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday.  Today, I am SO excited that I can finally give you some details on my next book.  Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs is set to release in March, and I am thrilled!

What can I say?  I write what I know, and if you've followed along with me for awhile, you know I love pieced quilt backs!  This book has a collection of thirty of them- that's right 3-0!  Half of the pieced back patterns are written using scraps of various sizes, and the other fifteen patterns are written using yardage that coordinates with the front of your quilt (because sometimes we don't have leftovers, but still want a simple, but pretty quilt back!).

Each backing pattern is written in three different sizes to accommodate your particular quilt, AND (as if that wasn't enough) there are eighteen bonus quilt (front) patterns available as downloads with the purchase of the book.  The book also contains tips and techniques if you're a new quilter, as well as full instructions for finishing your quilt.  It is truly comprehensive.

I'm really proud of the content, and I hope it will be a useful tool for every quilter!  It is available right now for preorder on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  I'll have it in my shop as well, but it's not there just yet!  I can't wait to share more as March gets closer!

Without further ado, check out the highlights from last week's party!  This pretty quilt is from Sally at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking-

Julie's Quilts and Costumes showed off this quilt.  The zany mix of fabrics is so fun, but the colors are perfect for autumn.

Deb at A Scrappy Quilter linked up this soothing blue quilt-

And finally, look at this beauty by DonnaleeQ-

Wow!  I can't wait to see what you're all working on this week!  I'm in the early stages of a new project, and I'll share more next week.  Let's link up!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. What a fantastic topic for a book. Congratulations and what a beautiful cover!

  2. Congratulations on your new book, Kelly! I think pieced backs are gorgeous, so looking forward to your new book release!

  5. Congrats on the book! It looks really fun. I love pieced back.

  6. Many congrats on your book!


  7. Congratulations on your upcoming book release! What an exciting time for you! I am sure the book will sell well, especially with so many projects available. No wonder you were so busily distracted months ago, while writing it. I'm not linking up my blog posts because I go "off topic" and include a book review or two in each post.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
