Me and the author.
It is official, my friend, Ellen Murphy, is a published author!
She has published a quilt book with quilts that she has designed.
The theme of her book is the different styles of houses.
She took that idea and designed different quilts based on the houses.
The directions for each of the patterns are easy to follow with color diagrams.
Each pattern has a house that inspired Ellen to design.
This past Saturday, March 22, 2014, there was
a Quilt Seminar at the local 4-H Fairgrounds.
Ellen was one of the guest speakers.
She shared how, as a little girl, she always had a love for art.
She showed us an old pamphlet that her mom gave
her when she was little and it was about the different needlepoint stitches.
Ellen shared how she learned to quilt and started designing her own patterns.
Many ladies bought her book and she autographed them - including mine!
Congratulations Ellen, may you continue succeeding!
Her grandmother's needlepoint.

She made it for her kids and it has been loved on.
Her book hot of the press!
