The final day of my Blog Hop Book review bring us an amazing quilter my friend Jackie Kunkel from Canton Village Quilt Works. Jackie is a lover of brights and a Judy Neimier teacher and designer. Once again I find myself in a position of deep gratitude to one so talented that would take the time to review my book. Thank you Jackie.

While at quilt market, we were both ZIPPING around and both staying at the same hotel. We had whole conversations with reach other in spurts! It is amazing that the sweetest relationships can be found while running from one place to another. Maybe this is a life lesson that we meet and make friends everywhere and every day!! Jackie is my friend and I am blessed. For someone who loves brights so much to embrace my Neutral spin on quilting is terrific! This is exactly what I am loving so much. Neutrals are for EVERYONE.

Each Book reviewer will send me the name of their winner.One lucky winner from each of the 5 spectacular reviewers will receive an autographed copy of “Knockout Neutrals”, signed by ME, a spool of Aurifil thread (neutral of course) and a “Knockout Bundle” of 15 fat quarters ( 5 dark value, 5 medium value and 5 light value) to help kick start them to make a project in my new book.

Additionally I will draw from the comments on MY blog and draw one winner everyday this week to win an autographed copy of my book. Winners will be announced on Monday November 11th.

Ok let’s get out there and HOP!

Monday November 4: Kathy Brown/The Teachers Pet
Tuesday November 5: Sew Cal Gal
Wednesday November 6: Pat Sloan/ The Voice of Quilting
Thursday November 7: Gail Pan/Gail Pan Designs
Friday November 8: Jackie Kunkel/Canton Village Quilt Works

    What fun to see Jackie’s smiling face this morning! I first met her several years ago at quilt market. We also were in the same hotel and visited in fits and starts. I have enjoyed watching her online business grow. Hoping to win a copy of your book, I love all the projects in it!

    Pat, I am in love with your designs!!! I already have one quilt in progress from your first book and it is going to be marvelous! I’ve also been saving some neutrals for a special quilt for my son for quite a while now. He would love Road Trip!!! Thanks for sponsoring such a fun blog hop and offering the giveaway :*)

    Pat your book makes my heart sing. I have been stashing my neutrals for a long time just waiting for the right moment and pattern, it is in your new book and I am excited. I nearly missed this blog hop but one of my friends sent me here when she wished me happy birthday this morning. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativeness with us quilters.

    The reviews on your book have been great. I have my fingers crossed.

    This blog hop has been great. I never had any doubt how awesome Neutrals are. This has been fun.

  15. 15

    I’m a hoppin’ and I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments and posts.

    I am hoping to repaint soon. Loads of ideas in your book that would work for what ever color I choose. Assuming I can choose, it’s worse than shopping for fabric! Too many choices.

    Super blog hop for a great new book! I love neutrals.

    Just a fyi, I know you mentioned today’s post showed up several times. Looks like I commented on post two of four? hehe. Not laughing at you, hopefully with you. Computers are not my strong point so I feel your pain. Love your book and I’m leaving my wishlist where Santa can find it, hehe.

    Thank you for a super generous giveaway and a chance to win.
