Star Struck Quilts Blog Tour


I'm the last stop on the Blog Tour for Barbara Cline's new book Star Struck Quilts. Leave a comment on this post, and you will be in the running to win the following prizes: 1st prize is a copy of Barbara's fabulous book, 2nd prize is a gift set, including pen-style Chaco-Liner, Flower Head Pins and Mary Ellen's Best Press spray. In addition, one winner will be drawn for fabric from RJR and a $25.00 gift certificate to Patchwork Plus.

Barbara has been kind enough to write a guest post for me, so here she is:

Hello quilting buddies,
I am Barbara Cline from the great Shenandoah Valley of Virgina. If you have been following the blog tour you can tell I enjoy designing, piecing, quilting, teaching, family, friends and fellowship. I will try to include pictures which will help you get to know me better.

First I am a wife and mother of 5 children. They are very close in age. The youngest is 19 and the oldest is 23. O no, now they are leaving home so fast.


Yes, I really enjoy my quilt life but there is still work to be done around the house like canning, cleaning, washing and fixing meals.


Here are a few pictures of some of the patterns I have designed and you may order on my website Delightful Piecing http://www.delightfulpiecing.com/




A highlight of the year is when my sisters and I have a sewing retreat. This includes our Mother and nieces. We sew, laugh, cry and just have a wonderful time together.


I do have a blog site. Stop by and let me hear from you.http://quiltingal.xanga.com/

Tazzie here again :-) Be sure to leave your comment, and I'll draw the winners on Saturday evening. Good luck everyone!

The author seems to have such a neat family and background. What a blessing. I like the idea of the other 'thoughts' scatterered throughout the book too.

What a great looking family.How fun to have so many women in the family who all share the love of sewing or quilting. I have 4 boys so I keep hoping they will find women who will want to learn, or already sew and/or quilt.

Shasta said...

It looks like a wonderful book. I've enjoyed following Barbara on the blog tour.

Brenda said...

I can't believe that Barbara does all that she apparently does (and does extremely well). She must never sleep. Too bad she can't package some of that energy to use as a giveaway prize. I'd love to win her book (and her energy).
