Another Blog Hop Party and Another Giveaway!

Hi everybody and welcome to another giveaway! If you haven't been here before, I'm M-R and I live in Ottawa, Canada with my family. Here are a few of my recent projects:

Su{Brrr}nova
For 2012, one of my goals was to learn more about colour so each month focused on a different colour.  Here are a couple of the challenges to date:
Colour My World Grey
Rough Seas
Rough Seas - Colour My World Blue
I'm thinking of a Scrap Bin Mission for 2013 because my scraps are out of control. Hope you'll come back to see what we do in the New Year. :)

Enough chit chat already. Let's get on with the giveaway, shall we? I have this little bundle of fire here - four fat quarters and a spool of fabulous Aurifil thread - to share with one of you.


This giveaway is open to everyone and all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favourite quilting book is (nonfiction or fiction).

Followers or new followers get a bonus entry -- just leave me a comment letting me know that you follow.

This giveaway will be open until December 15th at 8 p.m. EST, at which point I will pick a winner via random number generator. No-reply bloggers, please leave an email address so I can contact you otherwise I'll have to choose someone else. There were about 30 no-reply bloggers in my giveaway last week.

Thanks for entering this giveaway! I'm looking forward to reading your comments, although I probably won't be able to respond to them all. Good luck!

For more fun giveaways, visit Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party page. Thanks for organizing another great blog hop, Michele!
