Do you have a fabric stash or books that you really liked at the time you bought them, but now ask yourself what was I thinking? I really think we buy things and skill sets increase or tastes change. What was a good fit years ago, doesn't match who we are anymore.
I would love to give these books, soft cover pamphlets actually, to someone who would love them and use them! They are gathering dust in my sewing room and that is just wrong! I would be happy to give it to someone who is just quilting or someone that is helping someone quilt for the first time.
The first book is the Turning Twenty series. There is little waste in the 20 fat quarters that are used for the quilt. They are super simple and I can believe how someone could finish a large quilt in just a few hours. Sure, IF you are not interrupted by random child wants and pressing issues like, "Moooommm, he took the pink crayon and that is NOT a boy color!" "Moooomm, she's put my toy in the toilet water!" Or dropping everything and finding out what this Dr. Seuss conversation means. " Stop! Stop! Stop!" " No, no I will not stop!"
The next book is 48 traditional quilt blocks that are made with templates for potholders. I think you can easily convert them to rotary cutting directions. My favorite name for one of the blocks is Contrary Wife. *giggle*
The last book is an applique book with some step by step directions on multiple ways to applique. I like the pattern, but I'll never get around to it.
So here's the deal. One winner takes all and leaves one comment. That's that. Maybe leave me an interesting comment about what you are working on this summer or help me decide what to do with a Christmas jelly roll? Ohh, the undecisiveness...
You can follow me or blog about it if you want to, but only if you want to make me smile. No extra entries, OK? I'll announce the winner on Monday next week. The next few weeks I will be giving away fabric, new from this season, and some handmade goodies. They will be yummy!
(Leave your email address if you use another format of blogging. I would be so sad to have you come up as the winner and not be able to contact you. Same with you "no-reply bloggers";)
