Book Giveaway: Day Number Five

Lap Quilting Lives! by Georgia Bonesteel.  From the back cover:  Let the host of the popular television show Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel help you add the ultimate flexibility and comfort to your quiltmaking--learn to break your quilts down into simple, manageable steps with lap quilting!

Isn't that a pretty quilt on the front of the book?  While the colors sing to me, it is the quilting that really sets that quilt off.  The premise of lap quilting is to quilt each block and then assemble them into a top.  I'll admit I haven't tried this technique--at least not yet.  However, I have read the book often enough that I know how to do it.  Therefore, I'm ready to pass this book along.  The book not only shows the technique, it's filled with a variety of quilt projects.

Once again, all you have to do to enter the drawing is to comment.  It's okay to comment even if you don't want to enter, but be sure to make it clear you're not interested.

And if you're just now coming to the eight days of book giveaways, it's not too late to check out the books from previous four days.  The giveaways will close at noon (Pacific Standard Time) on September 7th and winners will be announced September 8th.

Note:  For those of you who use the "" for your reply email, you will need to provide some contact information to me if you should win.  Please be sure to come back and see if you are a winner on September 8th.  As it stands, there are several people who have entered the giveaway that I have no way to contact.
