whip-up mini quilt book + * gIvEAwaY !! *

edit:: hello hello -- #17 - robayre . you won! yay. thanks for playing along everyone. i'll be back later this week with a post

whip up - mini quilts

so of course you all know kathreen the supreme editor extraordinaire of whip-up [your one stop site for all things crafty]. well she asked if i would come up with a mini-quilt design for her book. and so i did.

and somehow my target pillow design ended up on the cover [not sure how that happened. i think it's the pug]. i'm especially excited because i've been the hugest fan of chronicle books forever. and to be IN one? well.... it's as nicely designed as all chronicle books tend to be.

inside of the mini quilt book

see - spiral bound to lay flat and a cute pocket to hold all your patterns.

my quilt/pillow is in the "punk" section. tee hee !

my mini quilt pillow : orange side

my project is double sided. this is the colorful orange side. and a HUGE shout out goes to lara cameron for the fantastic fabrics !

they don't really show this side in the book:
my mini quilt pillow : black side

this is the side that looks more like the target art that i made
mini target :: rhino

kathreen said she really wanted me to try and make some of my art into a quilt. she mentioned she liked the target pieces - and so... i tried it ! i'm no expert sewer - so... i'm kind of amazed it all worked out. you can garner more info on the book [and more on all the fantastic contributors] at whipup.net

you can purchase the book through chronicle books

or on amazon

BUT.... chronicle has graciously given me a book to GIVEAWAY. so comment here if you are inclined to win one. i'll draw a winner at random on june 1st..... happy sewing!
