  4. I'd never heard of this book, but if you and Doniene both like it, I must look into it further. Those are tiny RPtoPP blocks. Wow, are you hand piecing?
    I am ready to go when Randy starts--don't know how well I will keep up with 6 a month, but I'm going to try. My book is ordered and my fabrics chosen!

  16. What an awesome giveaway you won. Those are sweet little blocks and the hard part of piecing the tiny curves is finished for you. What are those bags that the blocks are in? They look like they are perfect for storing the cut pieces for my little house blocks. I would love to try to find some. You are so right that the book is excellent. I have a copy too and like looking at it for ideas.

  17. Great little prize.
    I hope that you are getting a commission on the books. I just ordered 4 at a friend's request (one for me of course!)

  18. Jenny Carr Kinney lives in my town and taught classes at the local college and for free adult education for years. I took one of her quilting classes when I first started quilting and learned an awful lot. Her hand quilting is exquisite and she's just a charming woman. Great book writer, too!

  19. That's one of my favourite quilting books too.

  20. Wow, curved piecing...my nemesis. What wonderful fabrics though. It was fun to look at them all on Martha's blog.
    Sounds like a book I need!

  21. I have that book and love it. It's a fabulous resource. Congratulations on all your wins!

  22. I went to Martha's blog and read about the sweet little cuts of vintage fabrics that you won. Score one for Lori!
    Quilting along with a group to make the Farmer's Wife quilt sounds enticing, but just too many WIPs going on right now.

  23. Oh great win Lori! Will look forward to seeing that little project!

    I have that book too and have a design from it that I want to put on one of my quilt tops waiting in the wings!

  26. Got that book a couple of months ago during a sale .... It's awesome. My only complaint -- it's not long enough!

  27. I ordered that book, too. I think it was Tara at Sew Unique Creations who mentioned it most recently. I haven't had a chance to read it, but the photos and drawings are great.
    Congrats on your win - those little blocks will make a sweet quilt.
