fourthgiveaway Celebrate Giveaway!

Two incredible books and an amazing bag in which to store them. I hope you win!

There are two beautiful books from Schiffer Publishing, Eagle Motifs in America by Susan E. Wildemuth and Creating Celebration Quilts by Cyndi Souder. In Eagle Motifs in America, Wildemuth asked a variety of quilters to create eagle quilts inspired by different decades in American history, from 1770 to the present day. The different techniques used make for an amazing range of quilts, and the stories make for fascinating reading. It’s a really nice book that is sure to inspire.

Creating Celebration Quilts is all about making quilts to commemorate and celebrate life events. Souder guides the reader through the creative process for making quilts meant to be treasured keepsakes. Learn how to incorporate personalized elements that evoke memories, and get motivated by looking at the large gallery of celebration quilts of all kinds.

You can store these two great books in a lovely, large, handy tote bag from C&T Publishing. It features detail images of two quilts made for the Quilted in Honor program, a partnership between quilters, the quilting industry and the charity Operation Homefront, sponsored by Island Batik. The quilts pictured on the bag are Spinwheels by Angela Walters and Remember by Barbara Persing and Mary Hoover. The bag is made from recycled plastic bottles and is a great for storing and transporting quilt projects-in-progress or as an all-purpose tote.

To enter to win the books and bag, leave a comment on this post below telling us what your celebration quilt would celebrate, if you made one. Comments must be entered by 11:59 PM Mountain Time, Sunday July 6th, 2014.

If you are randomly selected as a winner, the email will come from questions@qnm.com (or its new variation QNMquestions@fwmedia.com) with “Quilters Newsletter blog giveaway” in the subject line.
