Book Review & Give Away!

I'm so excited to be able to review Dawn Heese's latest book! Her book is called, "A Year of Cozy Comforts' published by Kansas City Star Quilts. This book isn't just quilts! It is a fun filled book with fun other little "instant gratification" projects is what I like to call pillows, runners and a pincushion that is cross-stitched. I've given a little sneak peek below of one of the photographs of quilts in the book. The photography in the book is wonderful and directions concise along with full size templates for some applique.

You can see some really great photos of quilts from Dawn's latest book at her site called, "Linen Closet Quilts." I mentioned a few days ago that Dawn is having a giveaway for one of her books. You still have time to enter! So hustle on over, scroll down into her blog and see some of the quilts you can make!


Dawn's on a roll in the quilt world. This is her third book (you can see the others on the right side of her blog) AND I do need to mention Dawn's first line of fabric is coming out soon! I'm anxious to get my hands on some and you will too. Take a peek to see it HERE.
