New quilt book: Springtime in the Rockies

Last Spring the very talented Konda Luckau contacted me about contributing to a book project she was putting together called Springtime in the Rockies.  I was so honored to be invited.  And now the book here – it is so much fun to see my name in print! 
This book is a collaboration of 15 quilting projects by 9 different designers who live here in the Rocky Mountains.
My contribution is this basket quilt. 
 Ta Da! There it is! 

And just in case the weather (here in the northern hemisphere, at least) has you in more of a ‘fallish’ mood, here is another version I created using a more ‘fall’ color palette.  I’m thinking I’d really like to try this pattern in all solids at some point for another completely different look. 

Springtime in the Rockies can be purchased hereAs part of the Springtime in the Rockies Blog Tour, I have a copy to give away.  And I’ll even include a bundle of fabrics to create your own spring baskets quilt in time for next spring!  To enter just leave a comment on this post.  Giveaway closes Sunday, September 23 at midnight MST.  Giveaway CLOSED.

    How fantastic! I live to the west of the Rockies and have driven up and over many times in my life. This book looks like a great read on the next road trip… or if I&#39;m the lucky winner, i can sew something up and then bind while on the road!

    I am in love with the fall colours, I have been scared to use orange for a long time but have recently started to use it as an accent colour. This is a great giveaway and I thank you for the chance to win.
