Here's how you do it....

Giveaway! Romantic Patchwork and Quilting by Ciba Vaughan

This is an oldie but goodie!

Ciba's Romantic Patchwork and Quilting book, from 1989 features a selection of patterns and projects, both large and small, designed to entice the novice and delight the experienced quilter as well. Most are traditional patterns interpreted in a contemporary fashion, with helpful hints to speed your progress and expand your horizons.

This collection reflects a penchant for the romantic side of patchwork, floral fabrics, pastel colors, and quilts or other designs with a sentimental history. All of you  fabric addicts, constitutionally unable to discard a single scrap of fabric once it crosses the threshold of your workroom, will also find a number of scrap fabric projects. These offer delightful ways to use up all those odds and ends of fabric you may have been squirreling away for years.
