Sheri Noel who blogs and works as Rebecca Mae Designs has written a fun book with each project having some form of text on it. (All appropriate/necessary patterns included). The book includes a good variety of techniques but is leaning towards applique and English Paper Piecing as opposed to regular piecing. That being said my project is regular piecing with a tiny bit of applique.
Each blogger on this hop is offering a free copy of the book as part of a give away. And as one has come to expect it was only open for US commenters. Sheri however was kind enough to send me a copy of the book for a Canadian only give away. Apparently Canadian rules say you must answer a skill testing question to be eligible for the prize. So if you are Canadian with a Canadian mailing address and would like to enter the draw this is the skill testing question. ( 24/3 + 2) Include the answer in your comment please.
There is a second give away open to anyone and it is for two spools of Aurifil thread.
The draw for both of these prizes will take place on Saturday morning March 16.
Now that the technicalities are over here is my project.
In the book this is a pillow but I made mine into a small quilt. All of my "homes" are black and white except for the one that is really home and it is filled with colour. When my Mom and later my brother were in care facilities I made them small wall hangings that meant something to them to hang on their door or on the wall beside their door. It helped them find their way on a long corridor of doors that all looked the same. My brother preferred the backing I used on his as it had hockey players and Canadian flags but it marked his room. I am not a skilled applique person and found I had a little difficulty making my word home look as neat as I thought it should be so I would call that operator error not designer error.
Please take the time to visit the other bloggers and see their projects and if you are so inclined leave a comment. If you are Canadian, with a Canadian mailing address and want in on the book draw remember the skill testing question needs to be answered. The Aurifil thread part of the draw is open to anyone world wide. Piecefully, Joanne
The giveaway is now closed I am working on notifying the winners, thank you all for playing along.
