THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
As a book editor with Kansas City Star, I recently got to work on a fun project with Linen Closet Quilts designer Dawn Heese. It's hard to imagine but Dawn actually produced two quilt books this year! I honestly don't know how she managed to get it all done. Her latest title—Inspired: A 21st-Century Twist on 19th-Century Favorites—was inspired by the timeless charm of 19th-century quilt designs. To update them for today's quilters, Dawn put her own unique design twist on each. The book features six new quilts, including four stunning appliquéd beauties—one featuring wool appliqué. I particularly love her Laurel quilt, which spotlights nine variations on the classic wreath design. I don't want to give too much away as I hope you will check out the book yourself when it's posted to our website here.
To celebrate the release of Dawn's new book, I'm giving away a copy! To enter, simply leave a comment telling me about your favorite quilt design. You do NOT need to be an official follower of my blog to enter, and international entries are welcome. For those of you who are official followers, I do want to thank you for your support with an extra entry. To get your additional entry, simply post an additional comment letting me know that you are an official follower. This giveaway will end this coming Tuesday, August 21, at noon central time. I'll announce the winner on Wednesday, August 22, and she/he will have 48 hours to respond. If I don't hear back by then, I will draw another name. Good luck to all! And in the meantime, check out all the other great new releases from Kansas City Star Quilts, such as Maggie Bonanomi's A Day at Sunny Brook, here. As usual, Maggie delights with a multitude of projects ranging from sachets and samplers to pincushions and hooked rugs. I can't decide which one to make first!
