Judy self-published a 24-page book for the Alaska tourist market titled QuiltAlaska. It includes cutting and piecing instructions in 6 different sizes for each of 36 pieced blocks on Alaskan themes.

Judy sent an email in May 2006 to friends, family, and quilting contacts about the book:


Dear Everybody I Know and Then Some,

My QuiltALASKA! book is finally out!

This is a little 24-page book (“A gold mine of Alaska block designs to quick-cut and piece in the size of your choice!”) that I hope will appeal wildly to both quilters and tourists. If you know some of either, please tell them it’s available right now for $13.95 plus shipping at www.MarshaMcCloskey.com, and will be in quilt shops soon.

A pic of the cover is attached.

And now that THAT’s finished, I’m going to pack up and head North!

Cheers to all,
Judy
