What Luck



It's no surprise. I love hosting giveaways and I love entering giveaways. I enter a good number. Occasionally, I'm blessed in winning. A book - a quilting book - a scrap quilting book was so me. As luck would have it, I was fortunate to win this super book from Monica at Diary of a Quilt Maven. Don't you just love the name of her blog? Monica's book arrived in the mail yesterday. I immediately sat on the sofa and looked at each and every quilt in the book. Several jumped out at me and began tempting me.


I've found myself taking pictures of star quilts lately. This one is appealing. Must be time to make a new star quilt.

Log cabin blocks are my most favorite blocks. I've not made a  Courthouse Steps quilt. This one is colorful and different from most.
What a great use of plaids! I truly love bear paw blocks. There is a bear paw quilt in my future. 


Thanks again, Monica for sharing this awesome book with me!

Books are the best! Well, fabric is nice too. =) Congrats on your win.

I borrowed a few great books from the library...I blogged about them the other day. In the end, I bought two...but I need a higher paying job before I can buy the third...or at least I'll have to wait until Christmas. =)

Looks like a great book, congrats on your win! I just got a star quilt in, and it is drop dead beautiful! I am always tempted to start a new project, but I'm hangin' tight on working on the ones that are PhD's.
