The Giving Quilt Book - GIVEAWAY!

Plume has been gracious enough to give me 2 books and 5 pins to giveaway.  So if you would like the chance to win one of these books or a pin, just leave me a strings attached - anyone from anywhere can play!  I will draw on March 30th and notify the winners that evening.

If you are a fan of Jennifer Chiaverini, you can click here to get to her official website.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is "Quiltsgiving," a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp to make quilts for Project Linus.
Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, uses her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. As the week unfolds, the quilters respond to Sylvia's provocative question in ways as varied as the life experiences that drew them to Elm Creek Manor. Love and comfort are sewn into the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they stitch, and their stories collectively consider the strength of human connection, and its rich rewards.
Featuring not only well-loved characters but intriguing newcomers, The Giving Quilt will remind us all: Giving from the heart blesses the giver as much as the recipient, and while giving may not always be easy, it is always worthwhile.

This post is now closed.  Thanks for playing along.

1st finish for 2013

I finished this quilt a couple of weeks ago.  Trang was really great to work with.  I believe there were about 25-30 emails between the two of us going over the details.  I didn't mind it one bit because it's all about the details.  I like how the corner stones look in this quilt.  Hope everyone has a great week!

2012 was an amazing year.  Heck...2013 has been pretty amazing so far too!  I've been wanting to share the quilts I finished between Sept. - Dec. they are.  I can't wait to post the one I just finished.  OH, and I'll have a surprise to share in a day or two.  Hope y'all are having a great week!
