Springtime in the Rockies

Here we are with another blog tour and another book give away!  This one is really exciting for me because two of my patterns are in this book.  Awhile back, Konda asked if I would be interested in a collaboration with a few of our quilting friends.  Of course I said yes! 

I went with two wall hanging quilts.  The first one is Josefina and her dress of many colors.  
 She's a little folksy, a little retro and I just love her.
The second pattern is The Hills are Alive (and yes, I sang the whole time).  I love the "moment" that this quilt captures.
But enough about me, there are a ton of other fun patterns by some wonderful designers. Be sure to check them out during the tour. 

Each day during the blog tour, you have two chances to win a copy of Springtime in the Rockies. Leave a comment here for a chance to win (winner will be chosen on Monday), then head on over to Maggie's blog for another chance to win a copy. The book is also available for purchase here.

  17. I LOVE your "The Hills Are Alive" pattern! The Long Cabin and a musical note, very creative great idea. My son plays piano, this pattern might look nice in black and white with a red note. I'll have to check with him about the flower. ;-> Toni Anne
