I am so excited to write today because MY NEW QUILT BOOK HAS ACTUALLY ARRIVED! It actually came on Friday, but I haven't had a chance to spend time with my computer yet due to the holiday.
Anyway, now the really hard work begins: MARKETING!
I will be doing a blog giveaway for a copy of my book soon, so if you aren't an officIal follower yet, please become one so you won't miss out the chance to win a copy of my new book. I don't have a date in mind yet for my giveaway, but I'm thinking the end of July or beginning of August. You
can find me on Facebook and I will be updating my website too.
The title of my book is: A RUSSIAN JOURNEY IN QUILTS: THE STORY OF NICHOLAS AND NINA FILTAOFF.
Let me tell you a little bit about my book:
This book was inspired by a story shared by my maternal grandmother about two of dearest friends, Nicholas and Nina Filatoff. Nicholas and Nina were Russian emigres who fled the Bolshevik Revolution and eventually found their way to Meadville, PA. They met my teen-aged grandmother when they purchased a small farm outside of Meadville as their retirement home. And that was the beginning of a long friendship. Sadly, the Filatoffs had had not children, but it was my grandmother who preserved their story by passing it down to her children and grandchildren, by recording it in her autobiography, and in the pages of her journal. It is thanks to my grandmother that the Filatoff's story didn't die with them.
Now you can relive their adventures from Russia to the refugee camps in Constantinople and across the ocean to the United States by creating the 15 quilt projects in the book. The projects range from table runners to wall quilts, and throws, all the way to a large bed sized Sampler Quilt.
The Russian Journey Sampler is a wonderful BLOCK OF THE MONTH PROJECT, which would be especially meaningful with the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. There is even a FREE Block of the Month Program guide available at www.pickledish.com.
The actual link for the FREE DOWNLOAD is: Russian Journey Sampler Quilt Block of the Month Program Guide.
Oh, I also wanted to tell everyone that the photography is simply gorgeous
and was done on location at the Baldwin Reynolds House Museum. This Museum was
once home to Supreme Counrt Justine Henry Baldwin and later home to Baldwin's
nephew's family by marriage, the Reynoldses. Here's the museum's website: Baldwin Reynolds House
I don't have copies available on my website yet, but will do so very soon.
