Book Review ~ Pat Winter's New Book!

"Pat Winter Gatherings ~ My Crazy Quilting Journey" Pat's JUST published book has arrived!!! I've had it just a few day's and it is already well broken in from reading and rereading , falling asleep with it as I read in bed 2 nights in a row and showing off to my family and friends. I am SO proud of her.
It is a wonderful medley of her stitching and garden intermingled with bits and pieces of her life.She shares her favorite threads, techniques and her best sources.You find yourself coming along for the ride as she expresses her creative mind and you get to "sneak a peak" at some of her stash. Most important ~ it is chock full of eye candy from cover to cover!
I had just "showcased" 2 of Pat's altered children in a little Ikea frame and was so excited to see one of them in her book. One of the projects is a crazy quilted hair comb. I made the blue one shown last night using her simple instructions ~ it was a delight to make!
You can order your own copy directly from Blurb or save about $5.00 on shipping by ordering from Pat's Etsy site
I encourage all of you to take this journey.
As Pat says on the last page ~ ~ ~
" I'll see you in my garden........"

Oh, am I glad that I found your blog through the OWOH event! I am a mixed-media artist who is actively expanding into fabric art, and I LOVE the look of crazy quilting! I do a lot of vintage work myself.

This book looks fantastic! Thanks so much for the review. I will look into purchasing this one, and I have bookmarked your site to return. I'm anxious to meet other fabric artists.

The comb that you made is stunning!
