I am pretty happy and honored to have an art quilt in Sue's new book!
Sue's book is great!  Many easy-to-follow projects that would delight any sewist, maker or quilter. Great tips and techniques, including fabric dyeing and basic techniques to fusing, stitching and embellishing.  A great many fun and easy to follow projects.  The artist spotlight sections (where my page is) has a statement written in their own words about their work and how their particular quilt was made.  I love it when a book gives you more than one voice.  A must have book for your library.  It also has a great 'resource' section

12x12 Love What You Do, with my classic trailer and bunting flags. My fabric line "Home is Where Your Story Begins" by Hoffman Fabrics. All of the fabrics were pre-fused with Mistyfuse, and then collaged together to create this piece.

Here is the back, so you can see the free motion machine quilting.  My quilts are all made the same way.  Black wool blended felt for the foundation, and backed with a fun color of wool blended felt.  National Nonwovens TOY002.  No batting, no binding.
If you've been following my blog, you know that I am a big fan of Mistyfuse.  It is my 'go to' fusible, because it doesn't change the hand of the cloth, and you can sew through it beautifully by machine or by hand.  This is what a 10-yard pack looks like.
