I love the cover quilt.
tons of great projects, actually.
so I picked a ton of pieces out of my 'new stash'.
red, white and blue
well, sort of.
 but in reality,
I am inspired by the book.
their colors.
honestly, didn't the last post have to do with stash?
 here it is.
I will post pics of the cutting,
and pics of the last book's project.

 I mean, how many of you take the time to
pop your seams

It would be such a blessing to win this book! I started quilting a few years ago, and feel head over heels with all the joy it gives me. We are big gardeners at our house -- waiting for the soil to dry out to rototill. But in our flower garden right now a yellow flower is blooming.

Nothing is blooming in my garden yet! (Manitoba, Canada) The snow just melted off most of my perennials, but I noticed just today that one of my hostas is poking through the soil. We still have big snowdrifts in the yard.

Hmmm - my garden still has snow on it and it's still freezing most nights. So, I have nothing blooming in my garden yet... But my lilac trees have leaf buds on them. This book looks awesome, thanks for a chance to win!! :)

Judy said...

I'd love a copy of this book! Looks like a great one!!

I've got beautiful Giant Purple Irises blooming!! Soooo happy for spring!

scottylover said...

Hi! I already follow the blog and the Facebook page! This book looks like a wonderful one to have! Thanks for the chance to win it.

Not much new has bloomed here this week. The cold spell we had a few weeks back put everything on hold. I do have a few daffodils blooming and I see green on the hydrangeas, so spring is on it's way. It was almost 80 today, so that will help!

Alyssa Grace said...

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the fabrics you picked out!!! So gorgeous especially the blues/greens! Gorgeous book-looks like a fun one!! Thanks for the opportunity.

Well right now, the only thing growing in my area is grass, and most of our yard doesn't even have that. But, I work at a flower shop and the shamrocks are still bloomin' away, as well as the tulips! (Although it's getting kind of late for the tulips!)

I've been following your blog in my google reader for some time now & am now a fan of your fb page! This is a great giveaway! I have been eyeing this book & would LOVE to own it! I love the fabrics & have been drawn to my own stash lately since it's been so rainy here in the Pacific NW. However, yesterday we had a beautiful sunny day & I had a chance to get out and weed my flower garden... nothing is blooming yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing the orange lilies, yellow daylilies, lavender asters & vibrant purple dianthus :)
