Yippee!! Today’s the kickoff of the Inspired by Tradition Book-A-Round 2!


We’re going to have a fantastic time on our virtual book tour, starting in Georgia and making stops across the country to California, up the west coast and eastward across Canada, and ending our tour in North Carolina. But, no plane tickets, no driving to the airport, full body scans, rental cars or continental breakfasts! The power of the blog!

Why “2”, you may ask? The first Book-A-Round was in celebration of Easy Appliqué Blocks. This time around we’re showing off its followup, Inspired by Tradition.


For the next ten days, visit a different blog, find out tons of great information about my brand-new book, and have a chance to win a copy. Start here each day and I’ll send you off on your virtual trip to far-flung places!

Check the Book-A-Round 2 page for the tour schedule.

Today we’re flying through cyberspace to the hills of Jasper, Georgia.

Maria Peagler, author of Color Mastery: 10 Principles for Creating Stunning Quilts and The Frugal Fabriholic, is kicking off the tour.

I hear Maria’s got a video up her sleeve, which I can’t wait to see! Let’s go visit Maria’s Quilts and Creativity blog for a quilty good time!

See you there!

    What a great testimonial! And to see all the blocks is a great incentive to buy this book and see all your lovely work. I admired the images on AZ and if I don’t win a copy,I’ buying one from you at LB.

    Congrats on your wonderful book.

    Hmm, forgot to mention that when I click on the link in your email, I go to a link at Maria’s blog that is for a fall 2007 post.

    I clicked on the title to go to the one about your book. I just tried it again and again I went to that post.

    Thought you’d like to know.

    Hi Angie! Thank you so much!!

    Yes, I incorrectly linked in my original post. Sorrrry! It’s fixed now but the email subscriptions went out already.

    Anyone else subscribed by email, just click on the title of Maria’s blog once you’re there are you’ll get to the Book-A-Round post.

    I enjoyed listening to you on Pat Sloan’s radio show. I already had you in my favorite’s list so it was fun to hear your voice and your enthusiasm. Thanks for the chance to take a road trip. :-)

    I just realized what was going on, my brain has been on hold lately, lol. I saw it on Sew Gals site and she did a wonderful review. What a wonderful book and lots of blocks to mix and match.
