I won!

Just for fun I entered a caption for the Quilting on a Budget blog (see link in side bar in the right) and imagine my surprise when Joan selected it! I had a choice of two books and picked this one. I do need to practice machine quilting in order to get those tops finished, and thought this might provide some inspiration! And another woo hoo. Been eyeing this up for weeks and finally bought it yesterday. All in French, bien sûr, but love it! Isn't it lovely seeing photos of quilts that you've followed the making of on Bonnie's and Tonya's blogs

good picks! I might need to look at that machine quilting one. I need some new ideas!
look at those awesome Bonnie/Tonya quilts!

great additions to the book/inspiration collection. THe machine quilting one in particular looks useful with the limited number of shapes to master, yet wide variety of patterns (at least if it does as advertised!) :-)

Well Ms. Clare...looks like you are on a 'winning' streak!! Two great books to have too!!!

I was going to say lucky you, but I think clever you would be more appropriate. Congratulations.

I don't buy quilting magazines (too expensive - would rather buy a book) but I would happily make an exception if it had Bonnie and Tonya's quilts in it - no wonder you had to snap it up!

Wow--they're in quilt mania. I rarely get a chance to buy that.

Good for you Clare, congratulations. It is just so lovely to win something isn't it.The books look great and I am sure will absorb you as weaving books do me. lol Gives you something to do in all this rain.

Lots of eye-candy! I have the Quiltmania in Dutch. It was fun to read about Lucy and Bonnie.

Can’t wait to see some of your machine-quilting practice!!

That free motion quilting book looks wonderful - and especially better when it is free! Congratulations.
