A New Giveaway: America's Glorious Quilts

Hey, it's been a while, thanks to hail, Texans and other interesting events...

So why not reopen the book giveaway with a splash!

   by Doris Duke Dennis & Harding

This enormous encyclopedia of quilting includes thoughtful, well-researched articles on various styles. (The one on Crazy quilts is especially good.) The best part, though, are large, vivid color photos you can really study for details and technique. From the outside, it looks like a coffee table book -- but it really is a self-education course in quilting and quilt history. A wonderful book.

    And now it's FREE to someone who enters the giveaway! 
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Perhaps...
     How do you continue to quilt when it's hot?
     What's your favorite quilt show or conference to go to?

Or anything you like.
 Leave a comment -- and you're automatically entered in the giveaway! (Be sure to use your name, and include a way for us to contact you.)

That's not all. Sign up to get blogposts by e-mail...or 'follow' it, mention it in a separate post below, and you've got 3 extra entries in the giveaway!

Giveaway ends next Sunday, June 24, at midnight MST, and the lucky winner will be randomly chosen on Monday.

I love going to quilt shows. There's a big show next week in Reno (Western Sew, Quilt & Textile Expo) next week. Can't wait!

Even with snow on the hills my two friends and I ventured out to my drafty, cold garage to hand dye fabric. After three days we stopped only because we had run out of fabric and money to buy more. Saving up for the-next session.
We crazy quilters won't be stopped by anything!

I'm one of the Texans who visited your home. I really enjoyed the information you shared with us. Was an eye-opener hearing about the "yellow rose of Texas."

This book looks fantastic! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

I quilt when ever I get the chance -- weather is optional!

I've never been to a quilting conference, but would love to someday.

The Modern Quilt Guild conference would be fun to see.

I love to go to the ASQ show in Paducah. It is an awesome good time. I think quilting is easier inside when it is hot. Go to that nice air conditioned sewing room and enjoy!
