Welcome to a giveaway post. You can win a new copy of Kaffe Fasset's book "Quilt Romance".
"Quilt Romance" has lots of delicious photos and 20 designs. For all you Glorious Applique afficionados there is an article on Kim McLean with photos, as well as the pattern to her Hearts and Flowers Quilt.
The random draw will be on Sunday, 20th March at 9pm Sydney time. I will send internationally. To enter, follow these requirements:
1. Leave a comment on this blog about a great design tip/idea for a sewing room. This can be from your own experience or from some other source that you have seen.
2. In the comment, explain why you like your tip/idea.
3. Mention this giveaway in your next post if you have a blog,
OR if you don't have a blog, become a "follower" of this blog.
Meanwhile, I would like to show you how I am managing my resolution for the New Year. If you are confused about this just go to the sidebar to see my 2011 challenge.
Just a smidgin that I slipped into "Morse Code" at the last minute.
Barbara Brackman's civil war quilts block of the week. I am only a couple of weeks behind.
Here it is again in a project I am currently working on but haven't posted about.
Above is block #16 from the Beyond the Cherry Trees Album quilt. I wondered how I was going to include blue in a fundamentally red and green quilt. When the pattern for this block was published, there was some online discussion where it was felt the vine could have been blue instead of green. I leapt at the opportunity. It is not quite finished. If you want to have a sticky beak at the blog about this quilt go to the sidebar and press on the Beyond the Cherry Trees Album button.
Finally, during the week, my 50th follower joined. Being a follower does not obligate you in any way and sometimes it's a bonus. Winging its way towards Rochelle from this blog is a gift.
So, good luck to all who enter the giveaway.
