It is time to announce the winners of the Issue 1 giveaway's.
The winner of Kathryn Schmidt's - 'Rule Breaking Quilts' goes to: Michele Duffy!
Michele said: 'The types of books I would like to see reviewed are any "modern" quilting books such as this one or marsten's collaborating again. anything modern, really because so many quilters are also making clothing, dolls, pin cushions etc. However, I did notice at the last quilt guild meeting that everyone was interested in a color workshop yet no one offered to be the instructor. this leads me to believe that color is a difficult subject to wrap around so color books would be welcome as well.'
The winner of the 'Simply Sweet' fat quarter pack is: Maeve Binder
Mave said: 'I would like to use this fabric to sew quilts for some ladies in a nursing home that is a lonely place out in the country. These fabrics are so bright and cheerful, they would make such "happy" quilts for some of these ladies. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.
BTW, the new emag is fabulous! Love the patterns, all the color, the new ideas, etc. Great job!'
and finally, the winner of Jane Brocket's - 'The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking' is: Karen Richards!
Karen said: 'I know this isn't the answer to the question you are asking just yet but i have to say that i ADORE the title of this book, The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making, it so appropriately describes my lifes passion, the passion that helps me unwind from the everyday stresses and the hustle and bustle of life and work.
Now in answer to your question, I would have to say say the 9 patch, i love the simplicity of it and yet the diversity of the arrangements when you put together a disappearing 9 patch, the quilts come together quickly and yet have a modern appeal without being too "grandma'ish"'
