Today I am posting to tell you about this great quilting book that has become an essential bedtime story in our family! Brandy Lynn, you probably recognize the name as she is the host of Canadian Quilt Talk (among other crafting ventures) recently wrote a charming children's book called, "Kristy's Quilt". I was so excited that Brandy wrote a children's book about quilting because I am always involving my five year old daughter in my own quilting endeavors. I ordered the book and Brandy was kind enough to sign the inside and I cannot even tell you how excited my five year old was when she saw that Brandy had wrote her name and a little message on the inside!
When we read the story I was very impressed at one thing in particular - the book was about modern quilters. Now, I don't mean modern as in only using contemporary fabrics or a certain type of quilting - I mean modern in a sense that the story is about a bunch of quilters at a retreat, using rotary cutters and sewing machines! Most storybooks about quilts that I have gotten from the library have been about an old hand pieced quilt from a special grandma, and please don't misunderstand, those quilts are sometimes the most special ones, but they don't really connect with our family.

This leads me to the really exciting part- remember how I said that quilters love to share? Well, Brandy Lynn from http://www.brandylynndesigns.com/ is definitely one of those quilters because she offered a free signed book to one lucky reader on this site!
