Book Giveaway - Jennifer Chiaverini's Brand New Book


It was a tough assignment, but I made the supreme sacrifice. 


  I received an e-mail from ton, a publishing house, asking me if I would like a cope of Jennifer Chiaverini's newest book in her Elm Creek Quilters series to write about on my blog AND to give a copy away.  How could I turn down an offer like that, especially since:
1.  I would get a free copy
2.  It would arrive before the actual publication date
3.  and most importantly they would send a copy to one of my readers

Win, win all around.

So I took the book with me to Key West to read. 


Frankly, it made me homesick for my quilting friends. So much of the book was familiar to me as a quilter.  That included the idea of a retreat, the quilting terminology and the camaraderie of women.  

 The basic premise is about a group of quilters getting together at Elm Creek Manor to participate in a week of  charity quilting called Quiltsgiving.   It focuses on the complelling background of 6 women and what  led them to Elm Creek Manor, and how their new found friendships helped them to heal.

Along the way there is lots of talk about quilting and quilting techniques
and the donation of all the quilts made during Quiltsgiving being donated
 to Project Linus, an actual charity for ill children in need.  


Would you like to win a copy of The Giving Quilt? 
Leave a comment by Friday, Nov 9 at noon EST, for a chance to win.
Let me know if you are a Follower or have become a new Follower
 and you'll get a second chance to win.

If I do not have your e-mail address, I cannot notify you if you win!!!
(Check my side bar if you are not sure.)

Where are my Wednesday's  Wanderings you may wonder?
Oy!  I missed 2 of them. 
 It's such a slippery slope that I started sliding down while I was in Key West.
  So hopefully next Wednesday, there will be 3.  I hope.

The giveaway is over.
And the winner is Lisa Cox.

  30. I have read every one of Jennifer Chiaverini's books and would be thrilled to own a copy of her newest story. Always the stories bring back into my world some friends I have met and loved or was challenged by, giving me yet another opportunity to transport myself into the magnificently delicious worlds Jennifer creates, especially for quilters.
