Christmas Giveaway #1

Let's celebrate Christmas with a month of giveaways! That's right, each Friday in the month of December, I'll be giving away a featured quilt book - Merry Christmas to you, from me and C&T Publishing!


The first quilt book up for grabs will help you finish those quilts! Appropriately titled The Ultimate Quilt Finishing Guide and written by Harriet Hargrave and Carrie Hargrave-Jones, this book is full of border ideas plus info on batting, backing and binding.

 


What most impresses me about this book is the library of quilt borders. There's over 100 border ideas, grouped into themes based on shape or block style.


Given by the quilt on the front cover, one could easily make a Round Robin quilt based on the border ideas from this book - wouldn't that be fun!

Finally, the authors go into several methods of binding a quilt, including binding hexagonal quilts with 60 degree angles. Definitely a terrific reference book!

To win a copy of The Ultimate Quilt Finishing Guide, enter via Rafflecopter below. Giveaway is for continental US residents only - sorry, no international, Alaska or Hawaii at this time. Giveaway is open now until midnight December 8th. Good luck!

Happy Quilting!

Midweek Makers 360

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


Hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday, sharing a splendid meal and maybe some football with family and friends. Feels good to be getting back to traditions.

Which is exactly what I did over the weekend, spending time with family and friends. That means I have no quilting progress to share this week, and don't feel bad if you don't either!

So let's see some of the projects that popped up last week.

From Kathy's Quilting Blog, a quilt top rescued from a garage sale and finished up,


a lovely music themed piece by the very musically talented Songbird Designs,


and some pretty fall leaves from Quilting and Learning.


Now it's your turn! Come share what you're working on!

Midweek Makers 359

Welcome to Midweek Makers and Happy Thanksgiving!


This is the last block reveal for my beach scene quilt - towels hanging out to dry.

Now I just need to add some sashing pieces to finish the rows then I can start on the borders. Almost there!

I also did a bit of quilting for Robyn, adding the pantograph Fizz to this very modern squares quilt done in grey tones. It came out so lovely!


As for Midweek Makers, this week I'm highlighting birds and flowers seen from last week's party. Take a look at this gorgeous quilt-along quilt, Flower Patch Mystery, made by Gretchen's Little Corner.


And how about this gorgeous quilting from Sue Dario's Quilting?


Or these applique tulips, part of a striking block made by Rebecca Grace Quilting. Check out her post to see a better view of the block.

And last but not least, here's a few fun flowers from Donnaleeq,
