Welcome to Mail Call Monday... On Wonderful Wednesday!!! The happy mailbox is actually from last Friday, but you still need to see what arrived. You may recall my love for entering prize drawings. Well, I did it, again!
This time, Julie Sefton was having the final drawing of her wrap up for the SSOBB Blog Hop. Imagine my surprise when I got an email notifying me that I had won a copy of her beautiful BUILD-A-BARN No Pattern Construction book!!
HAPPY DANCE!!! HAPPY DANCE!!! HAPPY DANCE!!!
Julie even autographed my copy for me:
The book explains Julie's process:
It also leads you through building your own Seasonal Sampler:
The best part of the book is that you are given construction details, along with photos, with no leaps to make on your own. That being said, you are encouraged to translate Julie's techniques into the creation of your own free pieced buildings. NOT JUST BARNS!!!
Maybe YOU don't even LIKE barns...
That's perfectly OK!!
"These techniques will then allow you to create many other types of free pieced buildings including aging or deserted industrial buildings, general stores, fishing villages, one room school houses, country churches, grand houses, humble bungalows, seaside cottages, or any other design style you choose."
Until next time...
Go build a quilt!!!
