Applique Thursday 8/9/12 & Giveaway

With temperatures of 109, 107, 106  not much of anything is getting done around here what with swimming lessons and playing with Alan a must.  Here's as far as I got with the next block - mind you I came home from CO at midnight Sunday -
What with hardly any quilting getting done, I so need eye candy to get me back in the groove. So this week's giveaway is a book ( a duplicate actually) that I think you'll really like.  Don was featured in SewCalGal's 2012 FMQ Challenge.  He had a great lesson for us.  I've used a couple of his motifs so I'll be keeping the other copy.  To win this copy, all you need to do is comment or link to have a chance for it to be yours. Or do both and have two chances. Submissions end Sunday night. Use the blue link below the photo.

I so wished I were in Colorado right now....grin. It's HOT here too, but not that hot. I still don't go outside unless I have too.

Finally got around to sewing again.

Now that looks like a book I could use! Thanks for the giveaway. I haven't gotten much done on my applique project either, but I'm working on getting some other things out of the way so I can get back to it :*)

What a fabulous looking book! Why don't they carry such beauties at my local quilt store, or at my local book store. I went looking today at the book store, and left quite un-instpired!

I love to visit Colorado too. My parents live in Denver so I go regularly. I'd love to see the quilting designs inside that book.
