Country Threads!! Book Giveaway!!


I am supposed to be posting this tomorrow...but I am at the hospital all day working, so I am posting this late tonight, in anticipation of tomorrow...

I just loved this newsy fun newsletter that Mary including with her book...please see below! The newsletter is chock full of country wisdom and fun, and quilts, and animals...what could possibly be better? Again! SEE BELOW!!! Hee!









I was honored to get to review this book for Mary and Connie of Country Threads!! Country Threads is a very cool quilt shop...located on a real working farm in Iowa!! I wanna go! Here is a link to their shop. They have goats and all kinds of farm animals, and the quilt shop is in a restored chicken coop! How much fun is that!

I just so happen to own the first Charm School book, and really love it. I have made several projects from that book, and found the directions concise with good pictures/illustrations...I liked that part a lot!

Back to Charm School has lots of projects, from simple to those a little more challenging...including good old country/motherly wisdom. I know you all have some charm packs hanging around in your quilting space...this book is the answer to using them up.










Isn't this a cute quilt? One of my favorites in the book for sure...








So here is the deal! Leave a comment to be included in the random drawing for the book...but be quick! I have to work on Saturday, so on Friday Night, I will randomly choose a winner!!





Have a great day, all!!

AlHo said...

The cup quilt looks just wonderful. It would look great on the wall in front of my kitchen. I just love the look of the book and since I always have a charmpack or two in my stach, winning this book, would be wonderful. Greetings from Germany, Alex

VickiT said...

Thank you for the giveaway and yes, I have to agree the coffee cup quilt is adorable. I love the one on the front of this book also.

And yes, I might have a few charm packs hanging around. LOL THAT is a huge understatement. I first started buying designer fabrics a little more than a year ago but because I can't afford to buy too much very often, the charm packs were perfect. I could usually get one or two of them every other month or so for awhile then had to stop. I do have quite a few though and this book looks perfect for me.

Marsha said...

I would love to be the proud owner of their newest book!! In fact, I need the first one too!!
I have charm squares that need to be used so I can buy some more.
