New Giveaway: America's Glorious Quilts Redux!

This was such a hit before that we're offering our second (and final) copy as a giveaway, too!



AMERICA'S GLORIOUS QUILTS 
   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...
     What quilt pattern do you keep coming back to?
              or
     What's your least favorite part of quilting?

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, Aug. 5, at midnight MST, and the lucky winner will be randomly chosen on Monday the 6th.
     Now it's your turn...let us hear from you!

I like to try all different kinds of techniques and patterns. Next on my bucket list is crazy quilting and judging from your review, this book would be ideal! Thanks sew much for this chance to win!!

I love patterns with stars and baskets. Have been doing hexagons lately. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit with you in June on the Bus Tour. Sincerely hope your area of the country will have no more tragedies coming your way - our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I thought this quite interesting... I teach students how to do this with watercolors, but have never had much success with crayons.  ...
