Blog Update: Book Winner Announced!
Congratulations to Kirstyn Cogan! Please email me your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will ship the book to you! And everyone, thank you for sharing your Pinterest boards. I am going through them and seeing some pretty amazing things to repin!
It’s a very busy Monday here at Quilts headquarters as we gear up for our flagship show this fall. I mean…look at all these packages we got this morning!
Meet Lucy, our U. S. Postal Service representative who is making today’s delivery of quilts for the upcoming Houston show.
My colleague Rose Reyes is hard at work processing the stacks of exhibitor contracts for the upcoming Fall Quilt Market.
And I would share a top secret photo of quilts being unpacked in the backroom by about eight people, but then the element of surprise at the Houston show would be ruined, and we wouldn’t want that, now would we!
A Special Call for Entries for Quilters Who Love Photography
Maybe you don’t have time to stitch up a quilt to enter into this fall’s edition of International Quilt Festival/Houston, but what about trying your hand at photography?
Introducing…the 2012 edition of Eye of the Quilter and Haiku From You: Favorite Things
We all have many things that we enjoy and love: a special time in your life, a memory, a special friend or pet. “The Eye of the Quilter and Haiku: Favorite Things” exhibit is about these kinds of memories and more, a subject limited only by what you see through the lens of your camera and your creativity.
Submit your three best digital shots keeping in mind the title (Favorite Things). You can manipulate the image or images in any way you like. In order to have you photograph considered, you must include a statement which will be included with your photograph in the exhibit if accepted. Entries will be juried and finalists will be printed, mounted, and exhibited at the Fall International Quilt Festival.
If you would like to share your Haiku, we invite that too! (And no, that rhyme was unintentional.)
The deadline to submit photos and/or Haiku is September 1st. For more information visit this web page.
So do you like modern quilts? I just so happen to have a copy of Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen’s Quilting Modern, and it is fantastic!
There are more than 15 quilt patterns in it, one called “Add It Up” that I am eager to make, not to mention some really cute pillow and placemat patterns. (Both Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen have quilt blogs that are fun to read, too.)
All you have to do is answer the following question and I will randomly pick a winner tomorrow (Tuesday) and I will announce the winner in this blog post. The winner will then just need to email me their mailing address at email@example.com.
Book Giveaway Question: Do you pin on Pinterest? If you do, please post the link to your Pinterest board in the comments area. If you don’t pin, you still have a chance to win the book, just describe what your dream inspiration board would have on it and what inspires you.
