Even though I live in Austin, I wasn't able to attend most of the lectures during Quiltcon because I was either volunteering or working. When I saw the Houston Modern Quilt Guild was doing a review of Heather Ross' lecture on her design process, of course I wanted to read about it. And then I found out they were giving away a copy of her new book, Prints, and guess what - I won the book!!
I did get to take a peek at this book before, and am super excited I won because it comes with a CD that has tons of images of some of Heather's most popular prints that you can actually print yourself on your own home printer, Spoonflower, whatever you want to do with them! How cool is that? Mendocino mermaids, tadpoles - yes, please!! I especially think this is a great book for sewers who, like me, started really getting into it after some of these cult favorite collections were sold out.
Even though I didn't get to meet her in person, Heather seems like a very generous person. My book copy is coming directly from her! The Houston MQG isn't too shabby either, because they're going to be giving away a fat quarter collection of Briar Rose due to come out April 1 and some other things in the works, like an Anna Maria Horner give away as well! Be sure to check them out and sign up.
