Book tour and Baskets

It's almost my turn to share with you about this fabulous book and give you a chance to win a signed copy. So be sure to come back tomorrow!! Today is Darlene's day. Hop on over there right now and read about the quilts she made for the book.

I wanted to give you an update on Winding Baskets. It's pieced, basted and being quilted as we speak. It won't be done by tomorrow, but here it is at this point. It's hard to see the quilting with it laying on the table.
But you can kind of see it from the back. I used some scraps to help piece the backing. I do love back art on a quilt, even a little bit like this!
Here's the rest of the schedule. Some have already drawn winners, but you still have lots of chances.
Darlene at Quilting Daze - February 16th
Karen at Nana Girl Quilts - February 17th
Sue at Quilt Times - February 18th
Carol at Brown Quilts - February 19th

See you back here tomorrow. Have a great Wednesday!
-Karen

Winding Baskets is so pretty - it's a nice twist on a basket pattern. I have to tell you from the pictures I've seen so far from Kim's new book - the Nana Girl's quilt is my favorite :) Nice work!!

I agree with Laurie. The Nana Girl's quilt is my favorite too! But I (as a new to quilting) have a question about your quilting. Do you quilt on your DSM? I admire everyone who can do this. I am beginner in this "field" and it seems to me very difficult.

Can't wait to see your quilt finished. Great giveaway and great way to use my jelly rolls. Cheers, Dianne

I love the Flowers for Nana Girl and the fabrics you used are fabulous. I'd like to try that one.

Surely wish my floor had such gorgeous quilts spread over it.

I didn't want to leave a comment on today's post since I just found that I had won a copy of the book from Millie's blog. Can I just say, YIPPEEEEEE!!!

I was so touched to see your namesake quilt and the fabrics you used. It is truly a beautiful quilt and a wonderful testimony to a sweet friendship.

I'm loving them all and will probably change my mind several times before needle and thread hits the fabric, but for now I'll say I'm starting with Nana's Girl. No wait, maybe Flower Boxes. Oh, I'm not sure....

Oh My! It is hard to decide which I like best! I'm really liking the Nana Girl's quilt!

I would love to win a copy of this book!
