Inspirational Indeed!

I told you last week about the package I got from the lovely people at Traplet Publications.



well.....

They asked me to do a review of their latest magazine "Inspirational"  and I was thrilled to be able to sit down and have a good read this weekend in between all that jam and chutney   :) 



There is wide selection of projects which will interest the broadest of quilters 



Each project is well laid out, with a profile of the designer, all the usual requirements along with clear instructions


a staged picture showing the project at it's best as well as a layout shot of the whole project.  This is always useful as so many of us work in such different ways.   The visual reference is, in my humble opinion a winner for all


As well as some fabulous projects, there are some great stories from the magazine contributors, I particularly enjoyed reading about other quilters stash's  - something I find fascinating,

there are plenty of projects to whet the appetite ...


Carol, (aka Mamacjt)  :)  this one made me think of you! 

I love the quilting on this Art Deco purse, although this one is hand quilted I can see the possibilities for machine quilting and so much more!  And the pattern is included too!

Inspirational indeed!

So, if you are still with me, do you fancy a GIVE AWAY?

You do? 

Well, I have two copies of Inspirational Magazine,

AND

two copies of July issue of British Patchwork and Quilting Magazine

If you'd like to win a copy of each (yes 2 winners!) 

Leave a comment, just one comment each,

if you want to blog about it, shout out to your friends, then feel free ...

Come back on Wednesday and I'll announce the winners and maybe something else too!

Happy Quilting!
