Congratulations to the five followers who were randomly chosen on Friday. Everyone has been notified and has responded with their addresses. Their signed books will be mailed tomorrow. It was fun to see the spread – we had a winner from each of five states: Illinois, Tennessee, Florida, New York, and Virginia! Congratulations to all five winners.
I appreciate everyone’s interest in my series and your comments. Above, along with the picture of the entire series and Frayed Edges, you will see the quilt made by Olivia Guthrie from West Virginia using the pattern that appeared in Frayed Edges. She did a fabulous job of both piecing and color selection. I saw this quilt at a retreat when Olivia was working on it and wish I had thought to take a picture of her totally surrounded by hundreds of little squares!
There is a pattern at the end of every book and I hope anyone who has made any of these quilts will send me pictures to feature in a blog (QuiltingCozy@gmail.com). I also learned that there is a quilt club that decided to make one block a month from each book. I would love to see some of those. What a great activity for a club. Several book clubs have told me they are reading the series together. These books are available from the publisher C&T Publishing, from Amazon in print and ebook format, and from major book stores. You might also find them in your local library.
It’s autumn here in West Virginia, although the trees have been slow to change color here in the eastern panhandle. Now is the perfect time to begin making those holiday gifts! Throws, wallhangings, table runners, placemats…all fun to make and there are lots of patterns online. Enjoy!
I just finished a quilt (below) for my daughter and it’s now waiting for binding (not my favorite part of quilting).
Thank you for entering the drawing…we’ll do lots more. I want to do another drawing of the first two books in the series. The set would make an excellent holiday gift for your quilting friends and older relatives who will enjoy the older characters. I’ll do that drawing in plenty of time for the holidays.
Best wishes to everyone!

I love your quilts, I love your books, and I miss them thar hills. Hugs to you, my friend.
You are missed, my friend…
Sorry you get Sis! I saw it while it was a work in progress!!! I already called dibs if Carol’s daughter didn’t love it! But we both know we don’t have a chance getting it! And I have two spoiled black cats. Carol loved Fang because he was gentle and loved on her. A close friend- who loves Carol’s books and quilts!!
Thank you, Joyce. You have always been such a support to me. You have been my cheering section for my books and my quilting and my life in general! So glad we met at that retreat years ago!
Your daughter’s quilt is so bright and happy! Lovely! I love binding in the evenings
Thank you, Ginny. I love this quilt – it’s going to be difficult to part with it. Hope all is well with you and your. I miss our lunches.
I am confused…our lunches? Do we know each other personally?
Well, that really made me laugh! No Ginny….I just assumed you were the Ginny who had done some volunteer quilting for me on a baby quilt project! Sorry! But that doesn’t mean we can’t do lunch if you live near the West Virginia eastern panhandle!!
Your daughters quilt is beautiful! My sister does all her binding
Thank you Carroll. I had a great time making this. It very cheerful and I’ve been calling it The Summer Quilt.
I love your quilt. those fabrics really help to make it pop wonderfully.
It does pop, doesn’t it and I think the white really sets the floral off. I loved making this quilt.
Carol that quilt is gorgeous…….! She is going to absolutely LOVE IT. If she doesn’t, send it to me please. LOL
Love, Your Baby Sister
OK Sister, I have you on the top of the list ‘in case she doesn’t love it’. And thank you for your complement…I must say I love it!
