I'd like to thank my trusty pals over there in the "Follower" gang by offering you all a chance to win one of two publications of eye candy.
Jean Wells' incredibly inspiring book "Intuitive Color & Design" is a must-have for anyone wanting to explore quilting with solids, interpret nature and man-made patterns in cloth, or just try free-piecing.
I have read this book (well, not this exact copy - I bought this brand new one for you!) a couple of times and always discover new ideas. I was lucky to visit Jean's store two summers ago when a group of us drove down to Sisters, Oregon for their famous outdoor show. The cover quilt was hanging above the big stone fireplace in the store, and it is stunning!
Seeing quilts like the one above almost makes me want to get over my fear of working with green and try harder to love all colours equally (except you, evil brown, you would require an intervention).
Also up for grabs is the gorgeous new "The Art of Quilts" postcard collection published by C&T. I love postcards (so I bought two of these books, one for me and one for you!). Whenever we travel and visit museums and galleries, I raid the gift shop for post cards of my favourite works. They are inexpensive souvenirs and usually the photos are way better than the ones you can snap in the galleries (if photography is even allowed!).
"Coastal Strata" by Gloria Loughman
This collection features quilts by many of my favourite art quilters: Jane Sassaman, Ruth B. McDowell, Gloria Loughman and Katie Pasquini Masopust.
"Ikat Anemones" by Ruth B. McDowell
