Blog Book Tour Give Away - Week Two

 The time has finally come to announce the blog book tour and giveaway for Cheryl Wall's latest book, "At Home with Country Quilts."  This book is near and dear to my own heart because I quilted most of the quilts in the book to include the book's cover quilt about a year and half ago.  I've given peeks, I've mentioned her book on my blog many times and now finally a day that you can win your very own copy!
 This beauty is named, "Star Gazing."  Loved this one...heck, who am I kidding loved them all!

 If you like that old antique, country and primitive look then this one is for you!  You will love the photography in the book as well.  So many beautiful props in the book photos and I understand they were from Cheryl's own collection too!

 This one!  Oh gosh...this one!  Cheryl send it back!!  (nice try right?)  This one is named, "Starry Lights."

I just loved the mix of homespuns in with the regular cotton prints.  I could see that border with wool too!  Gorgeous....simply gorgeous.  All of em!

Interested in winning a signed copy from Cheryl?  I have to tell you I'm posting this one day earlier than Cheryl planned because I can never get that pre-dated post thing to work correctly and tomorrow I'm outta here early for kayaking with my crew.  On Sunday (tomorrow), Cheryl will be announcing that I am the next stop on her blog book tour.  Here's what you will do to get your name in the drawing; leave your comment at Cheryl's blog post tomorrow (or next few days) on the post that reveals I'm the week two blog tour stop!  This way I'm sure you checked out who Cheryl the country quilt designer is.  Hee!!  I will then select a winner next Saturday from comments left at Cheryl's blog and request Cheryl to mail you an autographed copy.  Best of luck!
