Congrats to #131, Nicole!
Today I am sharing a new book with you that just so happens to be written by someone I adore, Dana Bolyard!
I met Dana at the first Sew South and instantly felt connected to her. She has become a sweet friend over the last few years and I’m so happy for her accomplishment in writing this book.
Imagine Quilts is a book that, to me, expresses who Dana is. It’s laid back, quirky, genuine, beautiful and fun-loving!
It’s a great book for any sewing level. My two favorite quilts are “Posy Patrol” and “Scribble”.
I have a digital copy to giveaway today, along with a pretty fat quarter bundle of fabric from Free Spirit!
The digital book giveaway is open to all readers both US and International and the fabric is open to US only.
If the winner is International, I will draw a second for the fabric bundle.
Giveaway will be open until Friday, August 29th at midnight EST.
To be entered, just leave a comment!
Dana, I am so happy for you friend! Congratulations!!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

As I’m finishing the last quilt for this bee, I realized I haven’t shared my work on Dana‘s quilt!
Dana was one of the first of us to post her starter block and I was really excited about her inspiration.
Her family went on a road trip over last summer and her quilt block (a tent) was inspired by their trip.
By the time the quilt arrived to me it was BRILLIANT! Each person added something really special.
I was inspired from the beginning by this post and I wanted to paper piece Yellowstone or Bust into the quilt somehow.
I have had the pleasure of meeting her family and they are seriously the best kind of people. Warm, funny, caring, gracious, kind, on and on and on.
Love ya Dana, I truly savored the stitches put into this quilt for your family!
I added in the words across the bottom, the road sign with the miles they traveled, the camper and the yellow patchwork underneath.
