I have a surprising copy of a new book, A Year in the Life of Sunbonnet Sue
a collaboration by two stellar quilters and authors, Christine Porter and Darra Williamson.
The book features 12 small quilts, 22″ x 26″, offering a quilt for each month of year — themed!
For example, in January – Sue goes skiing, in February – Sue delivers a Valentine, and then, in March – Sue participates in March Madness! That’s collegiate basketball for those of you who don’t follow… ; )
I love the wit and whimsy of the quilts in this book — including the “Sue Says” sidebar tips. The quilts either made me smile or laugh out loud with the clever designs that Christine and Darra chose, like June’s “On a Quilting Cruise with Sunbonnet Sue” and July’s Sunbonnet Sue at the BBQ.
Christine and Darra met in 1992 at a Jimmy Beyer Quilting Seminar, They traveled between England (Christine’s home) to the U. S. (Darra’s home) to work on the quilts and the book together — a great collaboration.
For your chance to win this fun book, filled with technique wisdom from, uh, “Sue”:
Leave a comment me here if you want to be in the drawing, for Darra on her blog for an extra point (Christine doesn’t have a blog), and I will pick the winner on Thursday, July 7th.
Lots more to come!
