Wow! I'm a Winner!

I won a giveaway from Tara on Sew Unique Creations blog. Wow! I couldn't be happier with this gorgeous book. The subtitle says it all for me, "Small Scrap Quilts of Yesteryear". Does it sound like the perfect book for my library?! I wish I could purchase every new book that I want, or every new line of fabric that was gorgeous. Don't wait a second longer to get this book. Kansas City Star did an awesome job. The photos, the color, the paper- everything about it is top notch. Actually it is one of the best quality quilting books I have ever seen. Good job Tara and KCS!!!

I never knew Moda made muslin is so many different shades. There is a nice stack of these charms for me to use. And the other reproductions are just gorgeous! BTW, nobody ever told me these charms are messy!

Thanks again Tara.

It is dry, cold and sunshiny in Central Oregon. I wish we'd get a bit of that snow that I know a lot of you are experiencing. Stay warm and safe!

  3. I will have to go check out that book. Yes, charms, jelly rolls etc. are messy. I don't like to deal with it so I won't be buying any more. The convenience isn't worth the lint everywhere.

  6. What a lucky win! I have the book too and couldn't be happier with it. I love the pages too and how they seem like you could wipe them off if anything was spilled on them. (because let's face it, we all drink our coffee and sew)

    Congratulations!

  15. That book must have had your name on it from the day it was published. You scored a perfect win, and congrats on that!
    I'm sure we'll see wonderful projects from you that were inspired by the book. It sounds like a publication I'd better check out for myself, and heaven knows I need another book (heh, heh)
