Time for celebration, book review and a giveaway!
Flower Show Quilts is packed with beautiful florals on patchwork backgrounds, and contains all the everything needed to re-create the quilts as I made them. There are ten projects, from table runners to lap sized quilts, and not only includes the patterns and instructions for each design, but also stepped out instructions for my methods of turned edge applique, raw edge applique, foundation piecing, and even a section dedicated to free motion quilting! While I was writing the book, I decided to make the table runner in three different colorways, just to show you that quilts don't have to be made "just like the picture in the book", you can change colors to make a quilt you will be happy living with or giving as a gift. When I was at Quilt Market in October, I saw one at the EE Schenck booth that had the flowers on a beautiful blue background!
If you already have my book, I'd really appreciate it if you would post a review on Amazon!
Last week I received an email from Martingale, letting me know that they were ordering more books printed, hurray!!!!!
I had planned to do a book giveaway closer to its release, and since that never happened, I figure there's no time like the present. So leave me a comment here or on one of my Facebook pages (links on the right side of my blog page and below) and I'll draw a winner next Monday! That gives you a week, but I'd advise you to leave the comment before you forget and miss the boat :-)
