Book Giveaway: Day Number Three

(My apologies for the camera flash on the book cover.)

For today's book giveaway, I offer Applique 12 Easy Ways by Elly Sienkiewicz.  From the back cover:  Applique 12 Easy Ways teaches you how to do hand applique simply.  Great drawings show exactly how it's done.  Even a beginner can make the small cover quilt, "You've Stolen My Heart".  As you sew, you'll learn a lifetime of applique skills in just a few evenings.  See your points, curves, and corners improve, heart by heart.

I do have an interest in applique.  In fact doing an applique wall-hanging is on my bucket list.  However, I have a feeling I need to move the applique project to my "maybe, someday" list.  I keep finding other projects to do instead.  Seeing that I'm really not progressing toward any applique project very quickly, I've decided I need to let this book go on to someone who may get some use out of it--or at least pretend they will as I have.

If you're interested in winning this book leave a comment.  (Or if you're not interested, but want to comment anyway, just leave a note in your message saying 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 Day Number One and Day Number Two.  Just comment in order to be placed in the drawing.  The giveaways will close at noon on September 7th and winners will be announced September 8th.


  1. I learned how to applique from this book. It really helped and I'm a better quilter for it.
    (Just wanted to comment. I have the book so please don't enter me in the giveaway, thanks!)

  2. OOOH Pick me! Pick me ! I hand appliqued approximately 8 million butterflies onto a quilt for my sister 4 years ago and havent had the motivation to pick up applique since. maybe this would inspire me.

    P.S. Do you think I'd really "learn a lifetime of applique skills in just a few evenings". Do they give a guarantee? i have two left hands when it comes to hand sewing. Yep I'm still avoiding hand binding that quilt from pure fear.

  3. wow..what a generous give away. Please do add my name for the draw. I would love to win this book. Thank you so much for this giveaway

  4. Well, I am learning a lot from my current book on shadow applique. Maybe I can learn some extra skills from this book. I an lending more to applique it seems, but I am playing around with quilting and applique at the moment.

  5. I find that I look forward to the part which explains -why- you're giving the book away.
