Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. And for coming back and reading again, and for commenting. Thank you for writing your own inspiring blogs for me to read too. Thank you for encouraging me in my endeavors. And thanks for including me in swaps and challenges. Without such enthusiasm and interaction, I would never have had the opportunity to be a part of Twelve by Twelve, and certainly would not have had chance to co-author a book!
So, to say Thank You, Mahalo, or Danke Sehr, I am giving away a copy of said book, Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge. And as an added bonus I’m including this cute little fat quarter bundle of Hawaiian themed fabrics* I picked up while on the Big Island last week.
I’ve been contemplating what I would like readers to do to win this fabulous giveaway, but then I decided that just showing up is more than I ever asked for when I started this blog. So, leave a comment — maybe about your favorite quilts, or maybe about a memorable place you’ve traveled to, or perhaps a project you’d like to try. Really, any comment will do. I will randomly choose a comment on Friday night (Hawai’i time) to receive both the inspirational book, and the fun tropical fabrics (no joke!). It’s like a big fruity drink with an umbrella, but without any guilt!
*Longtime readers (and maybe short-time readers too) have hopefully figured out that I run a rather scattered blog here, bouncing from “serious” art quilts, to forays in contemporary patchwork, to kid-centric cute and craft, and all with a healthy dose of travel and cultural exchange. So, it should come as no surprise that, although there’s no modern pink hawaiian anything in the Twelve by Twelve book, I still find it appropriate to include some local style kawaii in my giveaway. If anyone is curious, the top fabric is a typical graphic hibiscus print, then there’s the pink colorway of the same cute fabric I used to make pajama pants for my nephew last Christmas, and then a pink version of palaka (plaid) historically used in plantation workers’ shirts, and on the bottom is another graphic floral, this time on a white ground.
