The Summer is quickly speeding past us. I can’t beleive we are in July already, let alone that we’re celebrating our Independence Day today.
I’ve been away from the podcast and blog because of a freak little accident that I spoke about a week or so ago. You can scroll down a few past entries if you missed it and you care to know…
So, in an effort to empty my treasure box of products, (and because I am moving s-l-o-w because of the accident), I decided to get back to the giveaway a day.
so… here we go!
The first review is of the book, Country Comfort by Cheryl Wall of British Columbia.
Ok, so I LOVE this book and thought twice about giving it away!
The subtitle of the book is “Quilts for Casual Living” – perfect.
There are 12 quilt projects in the book, each pieced patchwork, created with beatuiful fabrics. At least half of the quilts are embellished with applique too.
In the Introduction, Cheryl speaks about her love if primitives and that love is carried through her book. Instructions, diagrams and patterns are well written. The photography in this book is very well done — I dare you to choose just one of these quilts to make for your home or cabin.
My favorite quilt from the book is Mountains and Meadows,
which blends Delectable Mountains blocks with stars, flowers and hearts, flat cottons with felted wools.
Cheryl’s fabric choices for her quilts are spot-on, creating optical interest without losing the design with fabrics being to too close in value, or losing her appliques in the same way.
Each time you leave a comment, at Cheryl’s blog and here on mine, your name will be entered into the drawing to win, giving you more chances to win.
I will choose the winner on Wednesday, July 6th — good luck!
