Book Blog Bonanza 10/13/10
Hello, readers! Who doesn't love to win prizes? We sure hope you do, because every weekday from now through October 15, 2010, we'll be giving away great books to build up your sewing library!
Today, FIVE lucky winners will receive a two-book prize pack consisting of Joel Dewberry's Sewn Spaces AND Pat Sloan's Fast Forward Quilts.
THE WINNERS FOR THIS ROUND ARE:
Seeing finished projects that others have done inspires me to keep going or start a new project. I'm good with sewing "things" like purses, wallets, etc. But putting together blocks with nice seams is a struggle I'm still learning so when I see beautiful quilts it gives me the incentive to keep going. Right now the Spider Web quilts in Halloween fabric are getting to me. I don't even love Halloween, but I love those quilts!
Georgious fabric always tends to spark my imagination for a project. However quilt patterns and craft ideas gleaned from other sources like magazines and blogs will ultimatly turn into project that I actually finish. It's better if I know what I'm making when I look for the perfect fabric.
I usually find the fabric first before the project. I buy the fabric with a specific project in mind, then it goes into the stash. After some time, I forget what I bought it for. :D
Commenter: Martha Johnson
I am often inspired by fabric that draws my attention and then I look for a book, pattern or inspiration from the internet for how to use the fabric.
I saw a table runner a friend made so today I got some Halloween fabric and made one. I guess others spur me on!
