Cheryl sent each of us on the blog tour one signed book to review and keep and one signed book to give away to one of you! See giveaway details at the end of this post.
Just look at this full table of contents! Cheryl shares a lot of information and there are EIGHT projects in the book with full instructions and photos. I was lucky to get to meet Cheryl in February when she was visiting in Jerusalem. We had a little show and tell with each other and I had a lot of fun fondling some of her beautiful little pieces of work!
Cheryl likes to do a lot of embellishing with buttons and beads. She has a section in the book about them which includes her description of how to put them on by machine. I have been sewing buttons on by machine for years and still had something to learn from Cheryl!
Cheryl's work is so creative! She likes to put words on her quilts. In the project shown below she has words sewn on using beads with letters on them. What fun!
You must check out Cheryl's blog, Cheryl Lynch Quilts, and see her weekly Wednesday Wanderings, where she makes memory pieces about places that she's been to. Cheryl really does a lot of traveling!
You can buy a signed copy of Sew Embellished from Cheryl's Etsy shop. On her website, Cheryl shows even more of her wonderful work from over the years and has information on buying her patterns and books.
If you would like a chance to win a signed copy of Sew Embellished, just leave a comment on this post (only this post). You have until midnight, Sunday night, June 17, to leave your comment. I will use the Random.org guy to choose a winner and announce it on Monday.
Only entries that have an email address come up when I hit reply to the comment that comes to my email, OR have an email address within the text of the comment, will be eligible to win. If you are not sure if you are a no-reply blogger or not, go to SewCalGal's page where she explains the whole issue and how to fix it if you wish. As SewCalGal implies, if you have never gotten a reply to comments you left on someone's blog, chances are that you are a no-reply blogger. If you don't use a google blogger account, you can always leave your email address in the body of the comment.
If you don't win this time, you can enter the giveaways at the stops on the tour that follow through mid-July:
