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

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.
