What fun it was to read about all your favorite quilt books. I recognized many familiar favorites among them and learned of others I'll be sure to check out. As promised, I've drawn a name via random number generator and the winner is Donna K. who wrote the following. Congratulations, Donna! You can email me your mailing address by clicking the "Email Me" button in the right sidebar of my blog and I will ship these goodies to you later this week when I make my weekly trip to the post office. I will be back later this week for yet another giveaway as I continue my sewing room cleanup.

I love any book by Betsy Chutchian or Kim Diehl and I love quilt history books.

In between work and my cleanup efforts, I've been sewing up more of my Aunt Tilly's tuffets for a special order. It is fun to experiment with different color combos like this black, white and pink one.

Coral and brown are a winning combo—at least according to this pink-and-brown lover!

In last week's post, I mentioned that my sister who was visiting from California suggested zucchini fritters for the overgrown ones. We enjoyed the delicious fritters she made for dinner one night. One zucchini easily provided a scrumptious dinner for the three of us. Because my sister has to be gluten-free, she used cornmeal instead of flour. I liked the nice, crunchy texture.
