Book Review And Giveaway: STARS!
Stars! A Study of 19th Century Star Quilts By the American Quilt Study Group
(Kansas City Star, 2011)
This 'quilt history' book is not what it seems. Not only do you study the 39 quilts shown, but you get to see 39 inspiration quilts based on the originals. And when you're suitably intrigued, move on to the pattern section -- 10 patterns for the inspiration quilts are included. (Take a closer look at the book here, along with sample pages.)
The American Quilt Study Group is an association of textile-lovers who are interested in learning more about the historical and cultural aspects of quilting. If you enjoy history too, this group will appeal to you! (If you're wondering, yes, I'm a member.)
Yes, you can win a free copy of Stars! Leave a comment, and you're automatically entered in the giveaway. Subscribe via e-mail, or 'follow' the blog, and get three more entries. (Be sure to leave a comment to let us know.) Giveaway ends Easter Sunday at midnight -- we'll pick a winner randomly.
Every week will bring a new book giveaway -- be sure to stop in and see what's on the list!
