Then it was down 6th Avenue and across the street to Kinokuniya, the Japanese book store. I found these two adorable how-to books and thought they would make a great give-away. That's right, it is time for Quilting On Main Street's first giveaway!
Each book has photos and directions for making small household items like placemats, tea cozies, pillows, small quilts, coin purses, totes. The directions are written in Japanese but there are lots of illustrations so they are fairly easy to follow. Book on the left has projects made from squares; book on the left is all hexagons.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post with:
- Title and author(s) of your favorite quilting book
- Why it is your favorite - general inspiration, how-to advice, lots of projects you like to make, eye candy - whatever that makes it your favorite.
From the comments, I'll compile a list of blog reader favorites for a future post, plus draw a winner who will receive the two Japanese books. Deadline for entering the giveaway is next Tuesday, August 25, 10 pm Eastern US daylight savings time.
