Some news and a Giveaway




Back in the fall I mentioned that his little book was coming out from CT Publishing. Well it’s out and I keep forgetting to blog about it!

Playful Little Paper-pieced Projects was complied by

Tacha Bruecher, one of the editors of the Fat Quarterly, and it’s currently available at Amazon and probably also at your local book store.

My project was this sewing machine cover which ties on the sides so it should fit just about any machine regardless it’s length and width.  I sewed this up over a year and half ago, seems like forever. 
Pattern and instructions are in the book along with a CD of all the patterns in digital format! Yay for that.  Digital is always nice if you need to resize or reprint.

As part of the launch for this book I am giving away a copy of it.  Simply comment here to be entered into the giveaway. You’ll get extra entries if you tweet, post on facebook or Instagram this giveaway. Comment back here so I know you’ve done so.   Winner will be chosen on Feb. 19th. When you comment be sure that your account isn't set to no-reply otherwise leave your email in your comment or I will have no way to track you down if you win.

If you are local and you want an extra chance to win, you can attend this Wednesday’s Corvallis Modern Quilt guild meeting where I will be presenting a talk on Foundation piecing and  also raffling off a copy of the book.

Actually, I'm just commenting to let you know that I am so in love with this book! When you first mentioned it I pre-ordered it using my Swagbucks rewards, and I had so much fun flipping through it when it finally arrived. There were so many amazing projects in it; congratulations on yours being one of them!
