I'm a lucky winner!


The other day I was happy to learn I was the winner of a new quilting book when my name was drawn by Kimber over at www.heirloomsbyashtonhouse.blogspot.com. My win just arrived and wow, it is amazing. Here is a photo of the book History Repeated by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle. Kimber edited the book as you can read on her great blog. I can't thank you enough for this copy. The pictures are lovely and enticing for future quilts. The color of the quilts and the photography are beautiful. Of course I had to show the book on my version of the quilt in Gone To Texas by Betsy Chutchian. I am a happy, happy quilter today...........

Looks like an interesting book. If I understand correctly, it was block exchanges within a group of people. Are the quilts made by one member or several?

Carol said...

So glad you like the book! Betsy and I enjoyed working on it.
All of the quilts in the book are from block exchanges, with each member assembling her own quilt.

Congratulations on your win! Your quilt from Gone to Texas is beautiful. I was so delighted to discover your blog, Kathie, from Inspired by Antique Quilts blog, put a link to you. I'm inspired by reproducers of antique and primitive quilts!!

I'm so delighted you like the book, Susie! Hope it sparks lots of future projects for you. It was a treat to see your charming Gone to Texas quilt, too. That one's on my to-do list!

If the front cover of the book is any indication, it is a "must have on my shelf" book. Congratulations on your win. I love your quilts and your blog. You would probably shake your head if I told you that I just tossed a little baggie stuffed full of selvages a week ago.
