Quilt Local by Heather Jones!

Hi all! We're today's stop on Heather Jones' Quilt Local blog tour.

It's easy to understand why we love this book oh so much! Heather's quilts are gorgeous, and her use of our Kona Cotton and Essex Linen is truly stunning (and obviously makes us smile!). We love to see what creative projects quilters make with our solids.

With 40 projects, it's difficult for us to choose our favorite - so we won't! What we will do is tell you about the gorgeous Austin Quilt that's part of a fantastic Creative Bug GIVEAWAY!

We've teamed up with Creative Bug, Aurifil, and Pellon to provide you with the chance to win an Austin Quilt quilt kit! The giveaway prize also includes a copy of Quilt Local and 3 months of unlimited access to Creative Bug. AWESOME, right?
