four june giveaways!
This month Okan Arts is giving away Mary W Kerr’s book Southern Quilts: Celebrating Traditions, History, and Design, published by Schiffer. There are four giveaways, each valued at $30.
This book celebrates the can-do spirit and welcoming hearts of strong Southern women. More than a picture resource, each chapter examines a different style of quilt design—Alabama Pine Burr, Cotton Boll, Rattlesnack, Seven Sisters, Whig’s Defeat, and more—sixteen total!
You are going to love this book as thirteen collectors and quilt historians compiled the quilt examples and wrote the text for each chapter. Quilts from 17 institutions and more than 50 individual collections are shown.
Whether you are a traditional, modern or art quilter, grab a Mint Julep and savor every page of this book. Then head into your sewing room energized to make a Southern-inspired design this summer!
Proceeds from the book benefit the American Quilt Study Group.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Beth B of Pittsford NY, Kathie L of Allentown PA, Nancy B of Jackson TN, and Sue K or Marble Falls TX.
