Quilt Alliance Twenty Contest and a Book Giveaway!!!!!

 I made a quilt to support the Quilt Alliance. The theme was Twenty to celebrate their 20 years documenting and preserving quilts.

Twenty Seeds Sewn 20" x 20"

I used my own hand dyed fabrics, purchased hand dyed fabrics and commercial batiks. The seeds and reeds were cut using my Leaves Galore Template. I used Mistyfuse to fuse the seeds and reeds. I used a blanket stitch to appliqué and quilted free motion bubbles in the red spaces. I embellished with Swarovski crystals.

In honor of this I'm giving away a copy of my friend Sue Pelland's new book Rotary Cut Applique with Leaves Galore Templates. It's a book filled with  great ideas and beautiful quilts! Leave me a comment telling me about the last quilt you made for someone else as a gift and I'll choose a winner! 

There will be an auction on eBay in November of all the Twenty quilts click here to see all the quilts

I love my Leaves Galore template and would love to win this book to get more ideas for using it. Right now I'm finishing up two baby quilts for my niece, who is having a baby shower on July 27th.

Would love to try it out. The last quilt was a baby-quilt for my friend's daughter and the one I am working on is a memorial quilt for my cousin's oldest son made out of his father's shirt and some more added recycled shirts.

Thanks Kathleen, for the opportunity to win this lovely book. The quilts you've made using the template are beautiful and inspirational.

The last quilt I made to give away was for a niece in MN who was graduating high school. I made a medallion quilt and it was very traditional in design. Made on purpose for a very modern niece!

I made a baby quilt for my granddaughter. Great big pinwheels alternated with square-in-square blocks. I used the leaf ruler to make a curvy quilt line in the border after my checkerboard turned out less than perfect.

Thank you for the chance. I hope by winning I too can make such lovely creations as you
