Selvage Quilts Giveaway!!

Hello Everyone,

This is really a new area for me in some ways and I have learned a lot! I have never made a selvage quilt, but hope to someday. The quilt below belongs to my friend Karen Griska, the Selvage Quilter! Gorgeous isn't it. Before anyone asks, no this quilt is not being given away. You will have to read through the post to find out all about the giveaway.


The picture below is Karen. She is truly a lovely lady and quite talented. Not to mention a wealth of knowledge when it comes to selvages! Today, I had the honor of interviewing her for my latest Podcast! This Podcast is just chock full of great information on everything selvages. You can click here to listen or download it from iTunes, just search for Jackie's Quilting Chronicles. This podcast you can actually view pictures of things that were discussed. So if you are sitting at your computer or have an iPod with a screen or iPhone, you will be able to see the images as we discuss them.


Okay, so onto the giveaway!! In honor of this very special podcast, Karen is graciously giving away 2 autographed copies of her book!!


Yes, you guessed it, there are a few rules, but they are easy peasy.

1. Leave a comment here for 1 entry.
2. Become a follower of Karen's blog and let me know in a second comment. If you are already a follower, just say so. While you are there tell her I said hello!
3. Blog about it and then come back and leave me another comment letting me know.

This gives you all 3 chances to enter, do all three if you like or just one! Remember, as they say, you've got to be in it to win it!

The giveaway will end on March 22 with the winners being drawn on March 23. Good luck!! In the meantime, enjoy the podcast.

Until Next Time...

I posted about you, Karen, the podcast and now I have three chances to win!!! Way Fun Jackie!
During the interview, I wondered about Karen's experience writing the book; did she write it and then find a publisher or did AQS approach her? I have heard of AQS declining many books that are later published by other publishers so, when you guys get together to do this again, inquiring minds would like to know...Thanks, Wanda

I can't believe I once threw away selvages! I love the use of the selvages with a solid color. I will be keeping that in mind. But it will take me years and years to accumulate enough selvages to make anything like that! Glad to see you on facebook.
