Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

This one's for baby Norah

My good friend, Kate Santos, and I went through our pregnancies together. . . commiserating and sharing good maternity clothes finds. She was due 6 weeks ahead of me, but we both ended up on bed rest and both ended up delivering early. She'd stop by at the hospital after non-stress tests and then the weekend her baby was born, she was just down the hall from me so I could get wheeled down to visit. It was so fun to have her there for a bit. Now we get to go through the newborn phase together. . . anyhow, this quilt is for her cute baby, Norah.

P.S. On this one I used the back pattern, an Amy Butler lotus design, to set my quilt pattern. . . maybe its the lazy way out because I hate marking, but it makes it kind of fun and challenging to find a pattern that ties the quilt together, literally!
