Fanciful Stitches Colorful Quilts

My good friend Laura Wasilowski has written the most charming and fanciful new book. It contains 11 fused projects for you to make and fanciful stitching for you to create on top of these small whimsical house quilts.
This is my interview with Laura in our booth in Paducah, April 2011.
If you leave a comment today, here on my blog, you will have a chance to receive a free copy of this book.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this blog hop. I have found so many wonderful blogs to add to my feed reader. But there is one danger… I may now have to many blogs to read that it will cut into my quilting time. Wouldn’t that be a tragedy. But at least I get the chance to win a copy of Laura’s book. I’m itchin’ with anticipation!

    Fun and different interview, Frieda! I loved reading about Laura’s book on her blog and would be thrilled to be a winning owner of it. I have a New Jersey mailing address. Thanks for counting me in.

    I would love to win a copy of Laura’s book! It could keep the copies of her other book company and I could learn her secrets to fun, happy quilts.

    I would love to win a copy of Laura’s new book. I took a class from you at the Quilt Expo in Madison last fall and now I see on Laura’s schedule that she’ll be there this year. I’m so excited!! (d-fulton@tds.net)

    I look at both your and Laura’s blogs regularly. I love the posts you both make and it really inspires me to do more with my quilting. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I am a new visitor to your blog — via Laura’s blog, via Annie Smith (simplearts.com) and her recent interview with Laura about this wonderful new book. I too am an “old” hand-embroiderer, but relatively new to dyeing my own fabric and thread. And I love the fact that Laura “works small” as I do — always a challenge re: presenting pieces so they don’t look like pretty placemats! LOL! I would love a copy of this book — whether in paper or e-book format. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would love to win this book! I enjoy the Chicago School of Fusing projects very much and am currently working on one from your book, Fun with Fusies. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Never been here before, but have seen your work and also Laura W’s…… YUM….color, color, color……and stitches…… I’m stuck in a wheelchair with a broken right heel bone right now, so it looks like hand stitching is my medium at the moment….. I want to win!!! thanks, Lisel

    Laura seems like she’d be soooooo much fun to work with! I’ve just started adding some hand stitching to one of your patterns, Freida!

    hello to both of you…
    if you’ve had a chance to see my blog on tqs http://www.thequiltshow.com/os/myblog.php/customers_blog_id/12036/member_no/1069645 you’ll know that i’ve been very very busy “investing” in fabrics on a recent trip to canada and the states – now i need lots of ideas of what i could do with them – believe that “Fanciful Stitches Colorful Quilts” would be just the right “tool” – first to drool over, enjoy and “digest” and then to work from
    have a great day :o) lotti

    I would love to win the book to give me ideas for using all the gorgeous hand-dyed yarn I just bought at their booth in Paducah!The colors are so pretty you almost hate to use them!

    Loved the interview, but I wouldn’t want a name like woodpecker head…good thing Laura has a good sense of humor!!:)
    Her book looks so enticing. It’s on my wish list!

    Who wouldn’t want to be at home with Laura’s new book?No boring stuff here and no one should ever expect anything that Laura does to be anything but challenging and wonderful. She has a sense of humor in everything she does whether in her writing or speaking and even her doing.
    I say the world would be better if we could all take Laura’s approach. I am not discounting Frieda at all as she is very good, but it’s Laura’s sense of humor that will get you everytime.
    Thanks for the comment opportunity. Love this new book, can’t wait to get it.

    Laura’s new book is full of fun projects and info. Love her use of embroidery stitches to make her little quilts just pop! This would be great to give to my friend who wants mine!

    Laura has spoken to my heart and my obsession of anything “house” with this book. It will inspire me to create a small quilt to go with my growing collection of ceramic houses.
