On the Fourth Day of Christmas......


My blog friends gave to me. Some quilt books to make it easy

I have a notion that you are pulling your hair out wondering what to get for that special sewer in your life. Whether you need stocking stuffers or a full on gift giving idea this Christmas. You can find it all at I Have a Notion.

Kelly, the owner of I have a notion, shares her love for sewing, quilting, and bargain shopping all in one very organized place.. Her diligence to keep up with the current trends, and still have the best prices, as well as adding some humor to her adventures in her blog just keep me rolling in smiles all day long.
Check out what some other sewers think of Kelly here.

Kelly is offering two prizes as well


Prize 1::Quilting Book, Hand & Machine Applique
Fall in Love with Applique!

• Learn to add beautiful appliqué to any quilt by hand or machine
• 7 charming quilts get you started
• 3 hand appliqué techniques: needle-turn, raw-edged, and reverse appliqué
• 3 machine appliqué techniques: invisible, raw-edged, and free-motion appliqué

Beloved quilting teacher and TV personality Alex Anderson shows you how easy it is to enhance any quilt with appliquéd flowers, leaves, hearts, and other shapes.

Prize 2:: Day & Night Quilt Book

Day & Night will mystify, enchant, and entertain you! It is magical! No
smoke and mirrors: the technique is just totally awesome! The pattern is
made from strips! The illusion is created by using the acrylic template,
included in the back of the book. Eleanor offers variations on making a
quilt with two or three contrasting colors. By using 3 or 4 fabric strips
the blocks take on a whole new look!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN WIN!!!

  1. I'd get the A-Z book of embroidery for my DIL. She just had baby number 3, so doesn't have time for it right now, but in the future, I'd love for us to get together and make a quilt out of her embroidery pieces.

  37. Geez!!!!!!! I'd like to win this one, because I don't have ANY quilting book yet!, please pick me, lol. Well I'd gift a book and a dvd from Kelly's store, she has a great amount of stuff for sale, so it's hard to choose, but it's definitely a good decision. I'll go crazy if someone gives that to me, I'm going with the karma.
