In an earlier post, I promised to give away a copy of my latest quilt book editing project with Kansas City Star Books. So here it is! Hot off the press, History Repeated: Block Exchange Quilts by the 19th-Century Patchwork Divas is packed with 112 pages of inspiration for reproduction quilt lovers.

Written by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle—co-founders of the 19th-Century Patchwork Divas (a Texas-based block exchange group with a passion for recreating quilted treasures of the past), the book features a captivating collection of quilts from past block exchanges—including this Nine-Patch Pinwheel quilt (below). Ranging from the simplicity of the Double Nine-Patch block to the more challenging Carolina Lily block, there is a project for every skill level among this book’s 16 classic quilts that are patterned (there are several additional inspiration quilts for color palette and setting ideas).

You can read more about the book in an earlier post here or at the Kansas City Star Quilts website here.

Here’s how to enter the giveaway:

The giveaway will run until Monday, July 11 (midnight central time US). My hubby will chose a winner by random draw and I will announce her/him on Tuesday, July 12. The winner must respond by Thursday, July 14, at noon (central time US) to claim the prize. If I don’t hear from the winner by then, I will draw another name. Good luck to all!
