Inspired by Sewn by Leila's We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler, I took it to another level by incorporating the Rosie the Riveter poster in the center. Having it printed at (you can now get it there too) allowed me to maintain the high resolution and number of colors that typical fabric screen manufacturing will not permit. This has won awards at two local shows so far (mid-year 2013) and has been juried into Pacific West Quilt Show and AQS-Des Moines !! So excited! Just came out on the cover of Professional Quilter.

This was a pivotal point in the journey of the Skill Builder Sampler becoming a book. Coming out in February 2015 will be You Can Quilt! Co-authored by myself and Leila Gardunia. It is now listed in the AQS Wholesale catalog!
