To see this class you need to be a member. To join, there is a cost involved, but it is worth every penny. You get a lot of great quilting tips and info plus access to presentations by many of the best quilters around.
This week, The Quilt Show is doing a giveaway in conjunction with my second class. If you submit a photo of a WIP to their website, you can win a trio of fat quarters of delft looking fabric that I bought during my travels
My second giveaway involves another book with a very inspirational story. I met Mary Marks as a participant in a group of Jewish quilters. (You know there are groups for everything.) Mary has started a new career as a mystery writer at 70! Her first novel came out this month and it's a good read. She modeled the heroine, Martha Rose after herself - a divorced, overweight, Jewish, quilter from LA. The book is pretty funny and the solution to the crime is very ingenious.
I am quoting the blurb on the Amazon page: Martha and her besties Lucy and Birdie are set to expand their Quilty Tuesdays by inviting newcomer Claire Terry into their group. Though at forty Claire's a tad younger than their average age, her crafty reputation could perk up their patchwork proceedings, especially as they prepare for the fancy quilt show coming to town. But when they arrive at Claire's home and find her dead inside the front door, and her exquisite, prize-winning quilts soon missing, Martha is not one to leave a mystery unraveled.
Thanks to Mary and her publisher, I am giving away a copy of this book. Join me on Bloglovin' (see the link below) and leave a comment with your e-mail address. I will pick a winner on Friday.
