Well, today is the day...you can leave a comment here to enter to win a copy of my book (International winners will receive an e-copy)! The book has 19 projects--2 bags, 3 table runners, 1 table topper, and 13 quilts ranging from wall hanging size to large lap/twin size. I really wanted to write a book with a wide variety of projects that would appeal to beginner quilters and more advanced quilters who were looking for a fun project or gift idea!
I asked everyone to leave a tip about having "A Quilting Life," and I want to share just a couple of thoughts on that topic. First, I'm really grateful that I was able to find this wonderful past-time (thanks to my grandmother and her grandmothers before her). I appreciate being able to create beautiful things for my home and for my family and friends. And I am so grateful I can have quilting in my life. My biggest tip is really something I've been doing a little of this week while the tour has been going on...making specific plans for things I want to make. I've been doing a little organizing and cutting some "kits" from my stash. It might seem odd, but it has really been a creative thing for me to get things organized. I always get more accomplished when my sewing room is clean!
Thanks so much for the nice comments along the way as well! I so appreciate every one of my blog tour friends for helping with this, too--thanks so much Nanette, Sinta, Jodi, Judi, Lissa, Amanda, Anna, Amy, and Kristyne! Remember that you can still enter the giveaways until the 14th, and winners will be announced on Monday the 17th.
I also want to take minute today and tell you about the Quilt Bliss Event--I'll be speaking at this wonderful event, and registration opens today! There is a wonderful group of teachers presenting at this retreat (I want to take every class)!
Quilt Bliss is a 4-day all inclusive retreat located at a beautiful resort in gorgeous Heber, Utah. I'm super excited to speak, attend, take classes, and listen to the other lecture given by SarahJane! You can find all the details about the accomodations and the retreat here. Register here today (registration opens at 8:00 a.m.).
