It is the last day of the Modern Elegance coloring book blog hop. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along! Today is my turn to give away a book…
Okay, I have to confess I’m not a great colorer. (Happily, coloring is not a skill that is required when quilting.) I’m not very good at staying in the lines so I quickly switched from markers to colored pencils to hide my mistakes! This made it much more fun!
And then I discovered that, once I colored, I could recolor things in photoshop really quickly. Whoopeeeeeee!
For the final chance to enter to win an ebook, leave me a comment on this post telling me YOUR favorite color! One entry per person please and the deadline is end of day this Sunday the 13th.
Note: This giveaway is now closed. The lucky winners (by random number) are Ruth B who liked the red/blue/green snowflakes on white and Alicia Key, who like the stripes! Congratulations, ladies! Please send me your emails. For more a chance to win The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book, follow along with the blog hop November 2nd – 12th!
I just returned from a very wet Market (record rains in Houston) where I shared the Contempo portion of the Benartex booth with my good friend Cherry Guidry.
Despite the weather, we had a lovely time and really enjoyed catching up with all the creative people at Market. This Market was pretty exciting for me because I had three new books debuting with C&T Publishing, as well as the BERNINA panel, new patterns and embroidery collections, and a fabric line with Benartex!
Today I wanted to introduce, Sparkle, my newest line for Benartex. It is called Sparkle and is a crisp and bright holiday line.
There are four new patterns for the Sparkle collection and they should be available in about three weeks. I’ll talk more about them then, but here is a sneak peek…
There is also a panel print for the Sparkle collection. (I designed two complimentary patterns to work with this panel, but I’ll save them to show another day.)
OESD has already digitized embroidery for Sparkle. It is available now so you can ask your local shop to order it. Writing a complimentary pattern to make these gift bags is on my to-do list this weekend.
I’ve already talked about the Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book and Quilted Celebrations, but my coloring book for C&T, Modern Elegance, arrived on my doorstep while I was at Market, so all three books are now in my shop.
Is anyone (but my mom) still with me? If you are it is time for the giveaway! Benartex gave me a stack of 10” squares and a stack of 5” squares to give to you guys and I’m throwing in Modern Elegance too. We’ll have two winners – one wins the 10” squares and one the 5” and both win coloring books. To enter leave a comment telling me what Sparkle print you like best and please leave your contact info. One entry per person please. The deadline will be this Monday, which is actually the kickoff for my Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book blog hop over at C&T. (There will be giveaways of that book on different blogs for two weeks.)
I really hope you like Sparkle! Have a lovely weekend!
