four september giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
SEATTLE WA What happens when a PhD scholar in classical archaeology changes direction and takes up quilting? Meet Amanda Leins (Mandy to you) whose love of aqueducts, ancient mosaics and temple steps inspires ten quilt projects in her new book, Wanderlust Quilts.
Mandy, a world traveller, starts every project with stories and photos. Classical art and architecture spark each composition. Through abstraction and craftsmanship, the ancient forms become fresh and modern quilts.
The book includes patterns and instructions, as well as improv direction, for stitching up quilts and pillows. Plus some excellent special techniques for building your skill sets.
Examples of techniques you’re yearning to learn: scalloped binding, sewing Y-seams, piecing half circles and nesting seams. Yeah!
Four copies of Mandy’s book will be be given away this month. To participate in these giveaways, just answer this question in the Comment box below: What classical art or architecture makes your heart soar?
The drawing will be held at midnight PST on September 30, 2015. Four winners will be chosen with a random number drawing. The prizes will then be shipped anywhere in the world. (International winners are responsible for customs.)
