Skinny Quilts & Table Runners review and giveaway

Ok, here's the stack of books I'm starting with, and the first book I'd like to tell you about is:



Skinny Quilts and Table Runners is a wonderful book showcasing table runners designed by 15 different designers (in their own style), which I would love to have on my table. As I turn the page to each new design, I see another beautiful runner, and wish I had time to make all of them. If I didn't already own a copy, I’d be tempted to keep it for myself, or running to the store to purchase it.


Some of the runners, like the Rosy Runner and Summer Picnic are quick and easy designs that I could see making as an almost last minute gift, while others like the cover quilt, Arc-i-TEXTURE stimulate my love to try out new techniques. By the SEA wants me to make it to hang on my wall, Arnold MARATHON and TEA 4 Two say “party” to me, and A Garden of SEASONS is calling me to make it, just so I can work with wool! I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to make one of these soon, but since I love all the projects in Skinny Quilts & Table Runners, there’s no telling which one could be first!
All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post by August 1st (including some way to contact you) to be included in the drawing, and on Monday, August 2nd, one of you will win Skinny Quilts & Table Runners. Good luck!

That book looks great....and just my speed. I seldom quilt, but when I do, I like it to be something on the smallish side.

I love using random.org for giveaways. (I even use it sometimes to randomly choose a chore I'll do around the house or which cookie to make for my cookie of the week....it runs my life I guess!)
