While the quilt shop owners and vendors are all in Portland, Oregon at Quilt Market, Kelli and I thought it would be fun to host some giveaways featuring goodies that might be seen at market and offer giveaways to all of you. Make sure to come back each day over the weekend to sign up for your chance to win goodies.
If Sarah’s name doesn’t set off any bells of recognition, maybe her book titles will: Material Obsession: Modern Quilts with Traditional Roots
, Material Obsession 2: More Modern Quilts with Traditional Roots and Quilting from Little Things…: Take a small idea and develop it into something wonderful
The book has 16 designs in the book and I really like lots of them. When my soon to be daughter in law, Jen, who doesn’t quilt was home she paged through the book. She loved the bright colors and the variety of difficulty.
Jen thought many of these would make great kids quilts.
I was a little mystified by the title of the book. I thought that each of these quilts was hand quilted, but I don’t believe they are. I believe “hand quilted” means home made.
There are lots of great quilts for using up scraps.
I think the one below is my favorite. I admit it, I am a huge barn raising fan (when the design builds from the center).
I am so very tempted to keep this book, but I am going to pass it on to one of my lucky readers. If you would like a chance to win the book, leave a comment here telling if you have ever hand quilted a quilt. We’ll pick winners next week. If you missed the previous giveaway’s you can check out giveaway #1 here and giveaway #2 here.
