101 Patchwork Projects + Quilts

I am so excited!  I just received a few copies of this new publication from the publisher.  I have two projects inside!  This is the first time I have been published and it feels great.

The projects from me are a sunglasses case and a car trash bag – both of which I use all the time.  I must have a small trash bag in my car to contain all the bits of paper, wrappers and tissues that seem to accumulate without one.  And, after many years of using the dark cases that came with my sunglasses and never being able to spot them in my purse, I decided to use some of my favorite fabrics for fun and to make the sunglasses easier to locate.  I never have to dig around for my sunglasses now.

I think of this publication as a magazine, but, really, it is more like a book.  It is just shy of 200 pages and one hundred and one projects!  Most books give you between ten and twenty projects.  I like the way they have separated them into categories for gifts, yourself, home, studio, kids, pets, etc.

To celebrate I’m giving away one of my copies.  Leave a comment between now and Tuesday night and I’ll pick someone at random.  If you become a new follower of my blog you can leave a second comment to double your chances!  If you aren’t the lucky winner or you can’t wait that long, you can buy 101 Patchwork Projects here.

    "Things made with love" It doesn't get any better than this. Your eyeglass case is awesome and the car bag is too. I was thinking how nice this new book would be for Mother's Day. Hey it would be even nicer to win one. I'd love it.
