    I am working on writing a book of my Stained Glass Portraits, and over lunch time, was playing around with ideas for the cover.

    Most of the text of "how to" is done, just need a little more detail here and there, and then I need create some generic patterns (which I may ask for volunteers to make up for me, to add pics to the book).

    What do you think of this? And how does the title catch you?

    I llike the 2nd one, but would do the quilted effect over more of the face so it's more obvious. Can't wait to see this book!!

    I like the full face of #1 (probably because she is so pretty! :-) :-) ), but #2 shows more of an example of what the book is about.

    # 2 ...what a great cover, beautiful little girl, and yes, it would totally catch my eye! Just did my first reverse applique, and would love to have had a book...

    Just an idea, but here goes. How about #1 with a fold out with #3 or better yet the whole picture on it? It is a beautiful picture and a pretty angel on the cover. It would give a good picture of the technique, since it is fairly new, at least to me. Let us know when the book is available.

    Oh, I think I know what you mean! Cool idea! Don't know if the publisher I am thinking of using can do that, or how much extra it would add to the retail cost.

    Another option, I had not thought of til you mentioned this - maybe a opaque cover with the quilt lines over the photograph? Lift the opaque cover to see only the quilting lines, and look at the bottom cover to see only the photo. Lay them together to see how the photo changes into the quilting lines!

    I've seen your completed quilt here on the QB and it is wonderful. Have you considered doing the whole quilt on the front of the package with an inset of the whole picture in the upper right hand corner? That way, an interested party can see everything of what you started with and everything of the finish. By chopping it up, some may think that is the way the finished product would be.

    Good luck with publishing. We can say we knew you when.

    I like this option - how cool would that be for a quick view - I would definitely purchase the book. Best wishes
