January - it's a giveaway!

I've been pondering what to write on a quilting blog when I am not able to quilt?  I love keeping up with all of you, from your comments and visiting your blogs.

SO!!!!  I've put my thinking cap on, and decided that for the next several months I will have a monthly giveaway of some fabulous new quilting books!  How does that sound?

The first quilt book I'm giving away is Cute as a Button Quilts.

12 quilting projects (hey you could do one a month) using buttons for embellishments.

There are some very cute pillows.....



Both of these patterns also make cute quilts ......

and a couple of tote bag patterns........


All make for some very fun quilting projects.

Leave a comment on this post.  This giveaway will be open until the first of next month when I will post a new giveaway.

Thanks for stopping by.  And Happy Quilting!
