A SUNDAY MORNING GIVE-AWAY !

Back in the spring, there was a buzz all over blogland about a new book called Sunday Morning Quilts. I was already a follower of Amanda Jeans blog, so when her and Cheryl's book came out, I snatched one up as fast as I could.




I immediately set to work on one of the projects that I fell in love with--Sunday Morning.




and then I did my own version of  'up up and away'



I haven't tackled the fabric boxes yet, but I plan to. Anyway, it's such a great book, that I think YOU should have one too : )

So, in celebration of my 200th post, I'm giving away a copy of Sunday Morning Quilts. Just leave a comment on this post. I'll leave it open until Sunday night, and announce the winner Monday morning.



In the meantime, I have some serious sewing to do!

**Please make sure that I have a way of contacting you if I draw your name**
