I'll be gone all week visiting with family and some of my sisters. To enter the giveaway for the book all you have to do is leave a comment sometime this week to be entered once in the giveaway. I'm not advertising about it anywhere else and please don't blog about it on your site. This is for any of my regular readers. And if you are a lurker, or have no blog please feel free to enter. Just make sure I have your email address or contact info so if you win I can let you know. I will be swamped when I get home so I won't respond to your comments but I'll be reading them. And to pick the winner I'll choose a random number generator by numbering each comment. Please only enter once.
The book is a delight. It is so full of ideas and so amazing. It is a treasure. I'm so glad I found it.
The photography is excellent and every photo is something to be enjoyed. I am going to take my Pink Book on vacation with me.
Pam dubbed it "Pink Book" because it doesn't have a recognizable title in English. And Pink Book seemed a perfect name. However, a reader of mine named Merumo with a great blog called Pleasanttree told me it said "Flower Color Quilt". Merumo's blog is fabulous. The blog is in Japanese but you can select a google feature on the side bar that translates it into any language. Cool huh! You should check her out.
I would love to make a baby quilt with this fabric, pictured in the book, for my daughter Whitney. We found out Whitney is having a girl. I have seen this fabric but only on Japanese available web sites. However all the fabrics used in the Pink Book are lovely.
The sampler quilt on the cover is killer. I would love to duplicate it. The book does not give complete instructions for all the blocks I don't think. But it would make a good start.
For those of you that don't win and want the book. The ISBN number is 9784391627190. My source doesn't have any more books but I also found the book on ebay and Yes Asia. The ebay seller had free shipping. I see the book is marked "sold" on ebay now but you might be able to email the seller and see if they can get more. In any case you will want to wait to see if you win my giveaway!
Have a lovely week everyone and I'll be back on Monday July 13. I'll announce a winner after I return. I don't think I'll get caught up with my google reader when I get home though. I'll probably have to start from scratch.
