Amish Abstractions Winner

We have a winner of the beautiful Amish Abstractions book (assuming we can get Lily to give it up). drum roll...

Lucy in Indiana aka qltmom9. Congrats! I look forward to seeing your fun Amishish, liberated, lettered quilt top. (Lucy, I sent you an email. If you didn't get it then, eek, email me)

I'm so sorry I can't give each one of you a copy of the book. I do recommend it though and we'll have a class/get-together soonish.

I did try to get Pokey interested in drawing one of the slips of paper, but she would have none of it. I think I'd have to tie each one to a ball of yarn or tuck it in a sock - she likes playing with those. Lily didn't want to play with the paper either, but she was willing to model.

I couldn't decide which photo I liked better, so I included both of them...

I have two quilts that have to be bound asap. eeeek, I'm behind. ya'all take care.

Thanks for the info on the "Amish Abstractions" book I'll be looking for it. Lily is a smart kitty! Looks something like my Roscoe.

Ich bin genauso fasziniert von den Augen deiner süßen Katze. Geht es ihr wieder ganz gut?

Those gorgeous green eyes! What a pretty girl. Lily does seem to have become pretty attached to that book. Hope you can get it away from her without losing a hand!

Every time I stop by I think 'I am going to make a quilt like that', but I always end up chickening out. I love this book tho! I am ordering myself a copy right now.

Lucky Lucy! That looks like a fab book. I'll probably be putting it on my wish list.

Lily looks quite happy sitting on that book. . .I hope you can get it away from her! She's a pretty girl with those beautiful green eyes.

Good luck with that binding. You're just slaving away, aren't you?! I can't wait for your book to come out!!

She has a pixie face!

The book is lovely- lots of things I didn't think of as Amish quilts.

I really would love to know what type of camera you use to take these wonderful pictures of Lily. Her eyes are wonderful.
