Wedding Quilt Giveaway!

Hope that title got your attention :-) Today is the day to begin the giveaway for this new book by Jennifer Chiaverini, The Wedding Quilt. This book is a continued delight of reading about the Elm Creek quilters. Jennifer Chiaverini's books include interesting bits of history...some of it authentic and some of it developed in the many endearing characters she has introduced to us. This latest story is written 'from' the future and tells of what has gone on in the lives of the Elm Creek quilters and their families since we were last with them.
I thoroughly enjoyed it! The characters in these books are like old friends that I love reading about and I'm really happy I get to share them with you.
Since this giveaway can have a special goal of getting the word out about this new book and giving someone else the joy of reading it, I want to encourage you to share this book picture and link on your own blogs.  Leave a comment of your interest in reading it and if you have a blog, send me a link to where you have posted about the giveaway.  One chance will be entered for a comment and an additional chance will be added for your 'getting the word out' post. I will choose and post the winner on December 4, 2011.
If you haven't read any of the Elm Creek Quilters series, I would definitely recommend you treat yourself to these wonderful books. They are in libraries, Amazon and all over the place :-) Start with The Quilter's Apprentice and enjoy your way through the stories.

Giveaway coming!

For some reason :-) my humble little blog was noticed and I am getting a chance to giveaway a new book. The Wedding Quilt  by Jennifer Chiaverini has been released.  I received the copy of it this week and will get to start reading it today....sitting in the docs office waiting to get my sweet mom's fractured wrist rechecked :-(  
So stay tuned for a review and giveaway of what I'm sure is to be a very enjoyable read. The Elm Creek quilters draw me in every time!

I've been distracted

lately and not posting what I'm working on.  So here's a peek into my world :-)
I was the lucky recipient of a giveaway by JulieQ.  Here is Elinor in the midst of triangles galore!  Some were sewn together, some weren't.  I am having a great time with them as leader/ender units. All different fabrics than my own and already cut :-) Thank you, Julie!
Last week I found a lovely pumpkin color check from Buggy Barn to use with these triangles. I'm going to love all this country warmth!

In the finishing area, I was able to piece and quilt a wedding gift. However, Marianne is blessing it for me and I will need to take a photo for you later.

I hope you are having a beautiful day!
