Blog Tour..........and so much fun!

Good Morning,
It's hard to believe that it's already September!  But, I must admit the fall color palette suits me to a "T"
and also a special gal I'm writing to you about this morning.  I first met this gal many years ago in Houston,
Texas, at the fall International Quilt Market.  She and her two sisters traveled from Canada to be a vendor at market.  The minute we met we felt like kindred sisters.  Having both been from the same country and our color palette being so much the same it was only right that we have been friends since then.  We've chatted and had lunch together at other quilt markets as well.  Only the miles separate us getting together to have lunch or dinner more often!  Thank goodness for emails and blogs!

Cheryl Wall of  "Country Quilts"  is the gal I'm talking about and she has so graciously asked me to be a stop on her new book tour.  The name of the book is "At Home with Country Quilts" and I don't know of anyone that does a better job than Cheryl.  Of course, I love her colors and the fun quilts that she makes.  There are 13 projects in her newest book.  Trust me you will have a very hard time deciding which one you want to make first.


I had to choose this particular project as my "to start" quilt from the book. I love stars and I  have the perfect quilt for this one to share a space with in my home.  I wonder which one will be your first pick???


Oh, Oh, Oh, I know -  let's play a game.......You could be the winner of your very own FREE book by leaving a comment on this blog.  A name will be drawn on Friday, September 7th.  If you are the winner, I bet Cheryl would mail you a signed copy! Did I say FREE?   Hurry, you don't want to miss out on this blog give away.  

I can't imagine anyone not knowing about Cheryl, but if you are new to the quilting world, here is Cheryl's blog information.  www.cheryl-countryquilts.blogspot.com/   Be sure to visit!  You can see all the fun stuff she has going on.  I always love seeing pictures of all her new quilt designs and her adventures.  

Congratulations Cheryl on another wonderful book!  You, my friend are one of the best!  Say hi to your sisters for me! 

Until next time, 
Hugs, Lynda
