Imagine Quilts

So my friend Dana, of Old Red Barn recently wrote a book,
and I am thrilled she asked me to be a part of the blog hop for the books recent release by Martingale


Its a fabulous book, and as soon as a copy arrived in the post, 
I just wanted to dive right in and make a couple of the quilts

The great thing is, I know its just not me that feels that way!

Its so hard to pic a favorite, but I have been so inspired by Dana's book


I had to jump right in and gather fabrics for a quilt


straight away!


and then I cut, even though there is stuff I HAVE to get done!

Dana is such a lovely person, and over the years we have become great virtual friends,
ever since those early days of the Old Red Barn QAL on Flikr

She has such a beautiful eye with the camera 
and equally eloquent with words

So if you fancy winning an e-book version of this very special book,
thanks to the very Lovely Martingale people

and


some fabulous Aurifil thread




Then please just leave me a comment, 
just the one,
if you are a no reply blogger, then please make sure I can get hold of you with your email address in the comment too.  
(i'd hate for you to miss out)

I will draw the winner Friday night

Giveaway is now closed, I have drawn a winner and will notify you when I can get back to my laptop. 

Thank you all for your lovely comments
