This giveaway is now closed. Update June1, 2014: thanks for the great song suggestions! I made two hats full of comments, and asked my birthday boy son (30-something) to draw. Congrats to Angie S who gets Fabric Artistry. Angie suggested a tune about the not always nice quilt police. And congrats to Janet J. who wins Row by Row. Her tuneful thought was a song set to Move Like Jagger by Maroon 5.
This month is slipping by so fast, and I am late with getting this giveaway going. But here it is! This round I am giving away two books. When you enter, tell me which one you want, and I will draw for each.
The first book is for all sewers, not just quilters. It is an oldie but goodie. Fabric Artistry is a Singer production from 1996, and chock-full of techniques and projects for embellishing clothing, pillows, and anything made from fabric. This copy was in my local used bookstore but show absolutely no signs of wear.
If you have every wondered how to do openwork, cutwork, weaving on fabric, embossed velvet, pleating, trapunto, couching, double needle trim, and other embellishments, there are detailed directions and projects for all in this book.
Next I have a brand new book, just issued this month. Row Quilts by Annie’s has several projects, for beginners to intermediate quilters. All the quilts are assembled row by row, but some include stars, patchwork, or even pieced fish! Click on the book title to see an Amazon preview of some projects. Both of these books would be great additions to any quilter’s library!
TO ENTER: Leave a comment here and suggest a tune or a topic for a future Curious Quilter’s Glee Club performance! If you aren’t familiar with the Glee Club, click here to see some of the posts that include classics like “Shall We Sew?” I am really hoping to expand our non-Christmas set of tunes, and would love to hear your ideas. THEN tell me which of the two books you want. I will draw two winners on May 31, 2014.
Again, leave a comment stating which book you prefer, AND suggesting a tune or topic for a CQ Glee Club song. Open to International readers, of course!
