A copy of "Back to Charm School" by the ladies of Country Threads, Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene! These ladies are just about my most favorite quilt designers! And their patterns are so well-written and easy to understand and to do.

I love this pattern of Baskets or partial Bear's Paws. This may be the one I make first!

But the simplicity of this pattern is also calling to me.

So, now to the nitty gritty: To be entered in my giveaway, just leave me a comment. Please make sure, if you're a No-Reply Blogger, that I have an email address for you so you can be contacted when you win! (or you could go here and learn how to change that setting.) You don't have to be a follower, but if you want to do that, it would be nice! I will leave the comments open for one week and will draw a winner on Monday, July 16th.
Here is my latest small quilt. Well, it was made quite a few years ago, but I just found it again and decided that I need to get it quilted up. This was made as a test of a template that I got at a quilt show - The Magic Triangle template. And I think it was very successful! Quick and easy, with no fabric waste! I used Fat 1/8ths to make this, and I went with scrappy within the black, red and the white/cream fabrics. I think these were the very first reproductions I ever bought. The scrappiness is subtle within the body of the quilt, and a little more obvious in the border.
Note: This pattern is NOT included in the giveaway book!

I haven't gotten this basted yet. I'm still trying to decide how I want to quilt it.
I really like this method of making the Magic Triangles. I have plans for using up some of my Christmas fabrics making this block, but I'll probably use a different setting. That's one of the things I really like about this block - there are a number of different ways to set them together.
Good luck in the Giveaway!
