I won a prize! Do you play the game sponsored by Martingale Publishing Company? Every week they post a Quirky Question. You answer the question and select the box “Notify me when a new Quirky Question is posted.”
This was my question:
What's the main reason you're glad there are no quilt police (or knit/crochet police)?
And my Winning Answer:
If there were quilt police I would be banned from quilting forever! There would be a restraining order on all my cutoff points. My wavy borders would be on America's Most Wanted. I would be charged with keeping all my beautiful fabric hostage. Thank goodness there are no quilt police!
I know, cute, right? I had a really good feeling about this answer when I posted it. And I was right! My prize is an e-book from Martingale Publishing Company. I get to choose from their extensive list. The book I chose is: All Through the Woods: Quilted Projects from the North Country.
I love the theme of this book. I am all about wilderness and nature. I lived in Alaska for 2 years and loved it. I loved the moose snoozing on the lawn of my university, I loved hiking up the side of the mountain so high that you feel like you reached the huge blue sky, I loved sleeping on the soft tundra and picking blueberries and watching the northern lights and drinking home brewed beer in taverns in the middle of nowhere. I loved waking up every day and walking outside and feeling like you just stepped into a miracle. What I didn’t love was the distance: a 4-day drive or $800 plane ticket every time I wanted to see my family. Eventually, family won out over The Last Wilderness, but that doesn’t mean my love affair with Alaska ended.
The only Alaska picture I can find at the moment.
I would love one day to make a quilt tribute to Alaska. And this book would definitely help!
