s u r p r i s e !
there's one more august giveaway
(no, no, not the fabric)
starting this month, august,
we will be reviewing
and then giving away
every month, for the rest of the year.
We will post on Mondays.
We will pick a winner from those leaving comments.
We will announce the winner the next Monday - one week!
Here's the question I have for all of you...
what is the most unusual PLACE you have ever been for a quilting class?
(go to the end of the post to see why I ask...)
Anyone with a mission statement that says,
"Country Threads...where no goat has ever been denied, no cat has ever been disciplined, and where no dog has ever been discouraged....and where quilting is alive and well!"
is a friend of mine!
While this is a book of 19 little quilts start with 5" squares,
each of the 19 projects gives you complete yardage requirements, too.
Each project utilizes a different technique - yo yo's, hexagons, half square triangles.
It's like taking nineteen different classes!
So I tested one of the patterns in two completely different color ways.
The directions are impeccable.
and some other great neutral fabrics with a linen.
This particular project has seven different setting variations!
In closing, what I would like to say is this.
You may say to yourself, while browsing the book shelf,
"I'm not Country. I'm not Modern. I'm not an art quilter."
But what you ARE is creative.
Take a look at what's IN the book, and make it your own.
Apply the techniques, enjoy the math (that someone else calculated),
and go to YOUR stash
for YOUR fabrics.
Appreciate the time and effort and pure joy
that the designers, the photographers, the publishers,
package up in books like this.
"Hey, let's go see what's going on this month in Garner, Iowa"
Thanks, Mary; thanks Connie.
Keep on designing!
and therefore, the reason for my question to all of you,
"what is the most unusual PLACE you have ever been for a quilting class?"
(can't wait for the giveaway? want the book now? order here...)
