Masters Art Quilts 2 Giveaway!


I am a sucker for beautiful books and I have a special affection for the books from Lark Publishing. One of my favorite Christmas presents of the past few years was their first volume of Masters Art Quilts. I keep going back to it—so inspiring, as all their books are. Their newest release is Masters Art Quilts, Volume 2, which is equally beautiful and inspiring! I am really pleased to be able to offer a copy as part of their introduction to the book.  Leave me a comment on this post within the next week. On August 23, I will randomly pick one of the commenters to receive a free copy! Cool, huh?

For the next month bloggers will be giving away copies of Masters 2, so if you don't win mine, you will have lots of other opportunities. Check the Lark Blog for the schedule. Tomorrow my friend Linda Teddlie Minton will be giving away a copy. Check out her blog for details.

I should also mention that Lark is the publisher of Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge. I am one of the Twelve authors and I still have a copy of our book to give away soon as well. I thought my 1212th blog post would be a good time to do that, but I wasn't paying attention and I hit post #1212 last week! So I will be celebrating the final reveal of our Twelve by Twelve Colorplay challenge on September 1, so be sure to watch for that.

  15. I love the books from Lark. I love that they support the quilt artists that might not be supported otherwise. I would also add that Twelve by Twelve is the only art quilt book that had me so mesmerized that I read every single word in it. That has never happened before. I am inspired to start art quilting.
