Re: Enter Our Huge Quilting Giveaway

My first quilt was made back in the early 1980s, cut out on the floor with scissors. A portion of the quilt was a nine patch that finished with each square at 1", yikes! The pattern is called "Young Man's Fancy", the 9 patch being the center of a star pattern. I machine pieced and hand quilted it. Unfortunately, my intricate hand work is not visible in the print; lesson learned. I'm now into art quilts, dyeing my own fabrics and have not lost my love and excitement for quilting.

The trims are quite lovely but difficult to incorporate into garments. I have used some of this type of trim on hats or spring-like purses.

I'd love to have this book and learn how to drape. So much fun!

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I've just had this book from the library and it IS wonderful. I would use my designed fabric to construct a sheath dress.
