Carol's Word Quilt and Giveaway!


Carol E. is making a word quilt. She has a few more words to go, then she's going to arrange them. Carol's blog is Giraffe Dreams. She has lots of good quilt photos there, and some book reviews as well.
"Sleep" is a good word for a bed quilt, right? 
***
If you haven't seen Tonya Ricucci's book Word Play Quilts, take a look. I made the word "Give" shown on the front cover, bottom row. 
LEAVE A COMMENT HERE TO WIN A COPY OF THIS BOOK!
Winner announced on June 21.

A word quilt sounds like a great idea. I've noticed though that the words Inspire and Create are missing.

Love what you're working on! Wonderful giveaway. The book is destined to be a classic I think.:)

Shirley said...

I would add the words YES and PLEASE.

Gill said...

Sleep is a great word - Carol could add 'tight' or 'yes please' as per Shirley's suggestion!!

Word quilts are so fun!! You can change up the words to "match" the recipient. While these words would be great for our daughter, I would need words like "sports," "football," "play," etc for our son. :o)
