Happy Monday, Friends. I hope you are doing well. I am happy to announce the winner of the giveaway of Guide to Quiltmaking. You can read about my review here. Thank you to all of you who entered the giveaway by sharing about your quilting and teaching stories. I am sorry I haven’t been able to respond to each of you.
The winner is Sylvia Strange (#11). Congratulations, Sylvia. An email was sent to you asking for your mailing address. Please email me directly if you haven’t received the email.
I am sorry I can’t give everyone a copy of this wonderful book. Landauer Publishing is currently running a July in Christmas sale on all their books, including this newly released Guide to Quiltmaking (pdf). Click here to see the list of books on sale.
Meanwhile, we are experiencing the heat! The rain is gone (so I don’t need a boat after all, ha!), but now we sort of need a portable igloo… all that to share with you these beautiful summery batiks by Island Batik! These fabrics are from their Flower Fields collection! Do check out their complete range of fabrics! I think these fabrics would be perfect to make the cover quilt on Guide to Quiltmaking, don’t you?
That flower fabric on the top is absolutely gorgeous! But what really caught my attention is the “paisley” batik in the collection. PAISLEY, I said! And this particular fabric, the paisley is done in gray… my heart has gone afluttering again. Check with you local quilt shops to see if they carry this beautiful line!
Things are busy at my end. I have been getting LOTS (like lots!) of fabrics that I will be sharing with you – that means lots of quilts to make! I have been working lots (and playing Candy Land!), so stay tuned for details!
So – what is on your plate this week? I have to start a new quilt, and finish one to ship. But, I have to clear off my work list a bit before I can start on the quilts… so, with that, off I go to work. Thanks for stopping by – hugs to you all!
