QUILT MARKET FINDS & FREE GIVEAWAY

One of the fun things about Quilt Market is all the book signings.  I just love them.  It's a grand opportunity to meet the author(s) and pick up a free book too.  Usually I will go to "School House" for a short review of the author's trunk show and then attend the book signing.  It gives me an idea about the projects in there.  However, this year I wasn't able to attend "School House".  I was happy to pick up these 4 titles anyway.

Eleanor Burns is probably my favorite quilt book author, (preceded only by Judy Laquidara by very dear friend). 

Oops, these next 3 are upside down and I can't figure out how to rotate them!  This is the 4th Volume of Quilter's Academy.  I don't own the other 3 but I have looked at them on the newsstand and wish I had them.

And who could go wrong with a quilt book using "Precuts".  I just love jelly rolls, charm packs, and layer cakes. 

I also love Edyta Sitar.  She does some really neat scrappy quilts (which we all know I can't do). 














I also picked up  a couple of patterns from Eleanor Burns, two of which I already had.  Which is your lucky day.  I'm going to give away these two patterns and ruler on Sunday.  All you have to do is leave me a comment.  I'll draw a random number and that comment will be the winner.

  6. I KNOW Quilt Market is fun, from reading various bloggers, it must be wonderful and fun and educational. I cant deal with crowds very well, and I think the ultimate best thing would to be to meet a blogger or teacher
    away from the hub bub of a show or market. A one on one type of real time spent. Where said "star" can take a breath.
