This giveaway is now closed, but the comments are still worth reading.
Well, I promised you a giveaway yesterday, and here it is! Rhonda Cratty contacted me last week about a book she's written, entitled Our Family Quilt. Rhonda has generously agreed to sponsor a giveaway of her book.
The story is about Grace, a master quilter, sharing her creative gifts with her young granddaughter, Audrey. Together their lives unfold around their family quilt. The love between grandmother and granddaughter keep a family’s generations turning despite minor setbacks, disappointments and celebrations of life. Friends and family of a charming mountain town in Colorado come together for life’s moments, creating an inspirational, heartwarming story.
Our Family Quilt immerses readers in:
• Family Life
• Contemporary Women
• Quilting ideas
• Creativity for everyday living
• The secret world of Grandmothers and Granddaughters and the people they love
Rhonda explained to me that the inspiration for Our Family Quilt came alive when a friend first took her to a quilting class. She knew the journey she wanted to take the characters on, and she knew how to sew but not how to quilt. She also went to quilting shows, learning as she went. Eventually, she joined a quilting guild, listening to the inspiring speakers and meeting encouraging quilters. With each new friendship made, she became inspired to add a different dimension to both her quilting and her book. You can read more about Rhonda at her website right here. You can also read more about the inspiration for her book in this article that appeared in Summit Daily, based in Breckenridge and Summit County, Colorado.
So...what do you need to do to win? Well, you know that always means leaving a comment. Any comment will do, but if you need an idea, tell me what inspired you to become a quilter. That's easy for me...I wanted to become a quilter when I saw my own grandmother's quilts. The opportunity to learn didn't come until later in life, but I always knew I'd get there some day. Please make sure I have a way to contact you. No-reply equals no chance to win. If you're not sure, please leave an email address.
I'll leave this giveaway open for comments until Friday at midnight and choose a winner at random on Saturday morning. But if you don't want to wait, you should know that Rhonda will make the eBook version available for just 99¢ beginning Wednesday morning. You can purchase the eBook version beginning tomorrow morning right here. But don't delay. The book price increases incrementally every 32 hours thereafter until it's back to its regular price on March 1st.
Okay then. Good luck!
