It’s a busy day here at Jo’s Country Junction. It the Quilt Square Quilt Along Parade….It’s “Waste not Wednesday” AND is the “Leap Day Giveaway Blog Hop”. WOW! If you are new hear and wanting to win goodies, don’t forget to check out yesterday’s “Try it Tuesday” post where I am giving away The Cutting Edge Rulers.
Elizabeth over at “Such a Sew and Sew” is hosting a blog hop giveaway. All of us on the hop are hosting one day giveaways. I am giving away one of my all time favorite books, “Little Quilts: All Through the House” by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Hold and Sylvia Johnson. My friends over at Martingale and Company sent it over.
This was one of the first quilting books I ever bought. Back then money was really tight and it was the HUGEST treat for me. It was published way back in 1993!! The book is still in print. That just goes to show what a classic book it is.
I bought my copy and made three different projects from the book. All of the projects are worn and gone. I had used them as table center pieces. This log cabin was my favorite…Mine was scrappy with blue borders.
I made this one called Christmas Stars too.
This Harvest Stars was another I made.
I remember totally drooling over the pictures in the book. I still love a country/antique/primitive type decorating.
There are lots of other cute small projects in the book that feature flags and Sun Bonnet Sue.
I took mine to the hospital when our daughter was born in 1995 and somehow, it got left there. I called the hospital right the next day and they said it was never turned in. I was so sad. I mourned the loss of the book. It was great to page through a copy again. Like I said, the book is timeless….a golden oldie, but a goodie.
If you want a chance to win a copy, leave a comment here telling what your favorite quilt book is. I’ll pick a winner tomorrow. Remember to hop on over to Such a Sew and Sew to see more blogs that are hosing leap year giveaways.
