Today begins the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop. What fun! If you visit my blog between March 8th and March 14th, leave me a comment on the day's blog (yes, I am going to blog every day during this time, seriously) and you will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of my first book, ORPHAN BLOCK QUILTS: MAKING A HOME FOR ANTIQUE, VINTAGE, COLLECTIBLE, AND LEFTOVER QUILT BLOCKS.

I am going to put all of the participants' names into a hat on March 15th and will pull out the winner. If there are a lot of participants, I might just give away a second book! Or maybe some magazines as I have stacks and stacks of magazines featuring my quilts now. WAHOO! Let the fun begin!

This week I've been feeling decidedly happy. Or perhaps it's giddy relief? I think it has something to do with getting all of my new book project stuff off to my editor, Kent, including the quilts themselves. Also, I think I've got a touch of spring fever too.

At first I thought I'd feel like something was missing once I sent everything, but actually I'm feeling the opposite. I feel like I've found something. Maybe my mind?? Or perhaps my sanity???? Or maybe it could have something to do with actually being able to sew again. Before I sent in all my book stuff, I was chained to my computer and didn't see my sewing machine for weeks and weeks. Sigh.... But now I'm back in the studio working on four quilts and one bag for magazines, and three memory quilts for a neighbor. Oh, I have a couple class samples going right now too. I am SEW HAPPY to be quilting once again.

Until tomorrow!

What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

ReplyDeleteThis looks like a great book - I think Orphan blocks are intriguing! A friend gave me some blocks that were made by her grandma, and I've made a few pillows from them for her. I'd like to get more ideas for using them. Best of luck with your publication!

ReplyDeleteThanks for the chance to win.

ReplyDeleteWOW working on four quilts, I too have been KRAZY enough to do that at 2 different occasions, when I had to make 4 neices quilts and then when I had to make 5 males quilts, all gifts.

ReplyDeleteAnyway, thank you for the chance/es to win your great looking book, Cindy Aus.

Ohh the page reloaded and now I see the comment box-- whew! That was scary, as I have a similar blog template and don't want that to happen! I am really interested in how to best use orphan and vintage blocks!

ReplyDeleteSounds great! Thanks!

ReplyDeleteYou are so generous in your giveway. What a wonderful book to be able to have for yourself and is part of your collection to keep forever. Thank you for the chance to win. That is really one thoughtful gift. One that comes from the heart and is also personal.
