Another Giveaway! Quilts from El's Kitchen

Hello Blog Buddies! Is everyone getting ready for Thanksgiving (except Canadian Blog Buddies who already had theirs)? I should be cleaning but have felt kind of yukky. Jason is going to be here from Dallas this afternoon late so I have to get ready for that. It will be good to see him. Our plans have changed (again) and now Gina is cooking instead of Eric. Eric has to be on call because the guy who was on call broke his leg skiing.

So I'm sure you're saying, blah, blah, blah--get to the giveaway! Well, I don't know if you have seen this but Eleanor Burns has a new book out:
She uses Apple of My Eye and other fabrics from Riley Blake Designs that were out of print. In honor of this book, Riley Blake re-printed some of these great apple fabrics! This is a fabulous book with the great instructions from Eleanor Burns. I learned to piece from her many years ago. She also has tons of yummy recipies in the book.
The sampler has a large center medallion with surrounding blocks, lattice and cornerstones. There is a choice of several borders. The one that is on the back of the book above, is the applique, scalloped border. Woot! I love it! We have some of the fabric and the book in the shop. We're giving away the book and a yard of Apple of My Eye Fabric that is used in the quilt:

All you need to do is be a follower of this blog via GFC so that I can find you. Following by email or running by and waiving doesn't count. This giveaway is for my faithful friends in blogland! You have been so kind and supportive through Charlie's illness and my craziness! Just leave a comment and tell us something you are grateful for this year. Entries from those living outside the USA are welcome. If you aren't following, just join up and enter! The more the merrier! We will pick a winner on December 15th!

Love you all! Have a blessed holiday. I pray that you are not alone. XO and cheery wave from Bev

Hmm! A new quilting book...with recipes...and (formerly) OOP fabrics...would that be the definition of Piecemealing?!?!
I keep looking at that book and it just keeps getting cuter! I'm here hopping up and down and waving my hand in the air hoping you'll throw it my way!
Happy Thanksgiving and Thanks for the Giveaway opportunity!
