I am giving away a book!

Did my title peek your interest?

Today is my day for The Teacher's Pet
Strip-Smart Quilts Book Blog Tour
I have known Kathy for many years. She holds a special place in my heart for many reasons.
One is that she is Cajun and talks funnier than I do.
My husband
 thinks he is Cajun
 due to the time he spent with an
X-girlfriend that was Cajun but that is another story.
Every time I talk to Kathy she makes me think of my time spent crabbing, making Gumbo
(minus the okra) and Boudin. Kathy has included her recipe for Grits in the book which is
tame compared to the other things she could
be cooking up?


Yesterday you visited Elizabeth at Late Bloomers.We both chose the same quilt from the book. I would say great minds think alike. Right, Elizabeth?!

Well Kathy has cooked up some delightful patterns in her new book using 2 1/2 strips or
yardages cut into strips.
When Kathy asked me to be included in this Hop, I quickly agreed. I was to pick out my favorite quilt and tell why. Now rremember I am a middle child, so I had a hard time deciding on my "Favorite".
 I like them all.
I studied and studied.  I couldn't decide if I liked the quilt design or the fabrics used in the quilt the best.
Each of the fabrics Kathy choose for the quilts were perfect. I tried to choose something different than what she had pictured which was even a tougher task.

Hometown in stores August, Ruby in stores September
I choose a jelly roll from Sweetwater called Hometown. I mixed it with a teeny tiny grey white polka dot from Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for my background. 

I could use an entire bolt of this grey dot. Love it!


 
This is what I made. I may have to finish it up for perfect Father's Day gift for my X Cajun man.

Yes the header said I am giving away a book.
 Leave a comment on my blog and Kathy will be using a
random generator to pick a winner each day.
Each winner will be receiving a book and ruler which will
 be shipped at the end of the blog tour.

Tomorrow visit Vickie at Sugar Spun quilts to see her favorite
project and get another chance to win!


A Cajun gal told me there will be a grand prize also drawn for at the end of the book tour. 

   
If Kathy share more of her recipes, beware! Have you ever had aligator? It tastes like chicken.

  43. I've heard that alligator-chicken taste like before --- not sure I believe it. I haven't seen a quilt in this book yet, that I haven't liked --- and the grey dot is a wonderful background --- I'm going to keep my eye out for it.

  44. You absolutely crack me up! Everyone on this blog tour has been fun. I've seen a prevalence of quilts using a similar gray background and am thinking I need to add it to my repetoire! If I win this book (which I really, really want!) I'll do that! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a fun book. I've never had alligator, but my hubby has--I'll pass!

  46. I would love a book of this type. Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book and ruler! Really enjoying this blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Never had alligator, but I would try it. But what I really want to try out is this book. I like everything I have seen from the blogs so far! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  49. OH MY GOSH! THANK YOU!!!!!! You just explained my own problem in not being able to pick my favorite EVER no matter what I was trying to decide about. LOL *I* am also a middle child.

    And YEP, I have had alligator at a local bar that served 'different' non-midwestern traidional foods. It was actually pretty good stuff. Where I'd ever buy any if she did give us a recipe for 'gator, I have no idea. lol

    Oh wait......we were talking about a book here weren't we. I love all I have seen so far about this book. The blocks shown so far during this blog tour are just beautiful. After yesterdays' stop, with her saying how distracted she was and still created a great looking block, that just sold me even more because I'm not a very experienced quilter. I figure if she can do it with all those distractions, then surely I can as well.

    ReplyDelete
  50. OOH! A double hourglass is on my list of quilts to make this year! Love your choice! Looks like an incredible book and what a nice giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ha Ha - doesn't everything taste like chicken? My BIL used to always say we should eat our Koi - he was just sure they would taste like chicken! Love the book and all the quilts - I really want to try that ruler!
