Quilter's Appliqué Workshop Blog Tour giveaway winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway—it’s been really interesting to hear what aspects of appliqué intrigue you, what’s held you back, and what you’re looking forward to in the book. I wish I could send you all a copy!

The randomly chosen winner is SIMPLESEW, who left this comment:
Its a weird I dont like to do the applique.. I am lazy, but I am a really good cross stitcher but I dont like to embroidery either, but love EPP..But I feel the same, they can play anything on TV and if I have thread in hand, I would be happy..
I hope the book will show her some ways to appliqué that will work for her.

Thanks again for all your entries, and for following along with the blog tour. And thanks especially to the hosts of each stop along the tour! If you missed any of them, they’re all linked up here on my blog, or right here on the book’s mini site. Orders for The Quilter’s Appliqué Workshop are now shipping, so please check it out!

Blog Tour day 6: Happy Appliquer

Magazines may be able to dig up quotes and photos from years gone by, but nobody can dredge up the past like a mother! Thankfully she only shared the minimally embarrassing anecdote of my childhood cartoon creations (Mo-om!), and today I’m honored to present a guest post on my talented mom’s blog, Happy Appliquer. Be sure to look around to ogle the work of a truly accomplished appliqué artist.

Blog Tour day 5: Generation Q

Today longtime quilt friend Melissa Thompson Maher reviews The Quilter’s Appliqué Workshop on the Generation Q Magazine site! I’m blushing...
It’s classic Kevin.  His urbane sense of humor oozes off the pages right from the start.
Don’t miss the goofy portrait of me they dug up from the archives.
