I was fortunate enough to get a copy of Vikki Pignatelli's new book, Nurture Your Creative Spirit. For one lucky person, it will be yours!
Vikki is the bestselling author of Quilting by Improvisation, a wonderful book that deals with, among other things, how to quilt smoothly in curves. (Tough when you don't know how - wonderful, when you do.)
Her newest book not only shows many of her best-known pieces, but talks at length about their inspirations and themes. It's a rare chance to get inside the head of one of today's most interesting quilters.
I am sorry to say I couldn't add the book cover to this post -- my IT guy is out hunting. But you can find out more about it -- and Vikki -- via her website. Go here for more.
Interested? Leave a comment below -- on what you like about Vikki's work -- or your current project -- or whatever. If you subscribe to this blog via e-mail, mention that in a separate post for a second entry. And if you're a follower, mention that separately too -- it counts for TWO entries.
The giveaway ends Halloween night at midnight MST. (No, the book doesn't turn into a pumpkin.)
