Win a copy of Kay Mackenzie’s new book!

My friend Kay Mackenzie has a darling new book out called Dolls & Dresses to Appliqué. It contains full-size patterns for “a dozen darling dolls in their delightful dresses” (try saying that 10 times fast!) An overview of fusible machine appliqué technique is incuded. The soft cover, 24-page book costs $15.95. You can order a copy on Kay’s website here.

You can see projects made from the patterns here. Here’s one showcasing all 12 dolls:
The cuteness factor is way high on this book! Kay has written a bunch of wonderful quilting books, most recently, Easy Appliqué Blocks: 50 Designs in 5 Sizes and Teapots 2 to Applique. She also writes a wonderful blog, All About Appliqué.

To help Kay celebrate, I’m giving away an autographed copy of her new book. Leave me a comment after this post telling me why you should win. I'll pull a winner at random at noon (Eastern time) on March 9. Make sure to check back that afternoon!

  2. Pleae put me in the draw. Applique is one of my favourite forms of quilting, and i have the ideal little girl to make a quilt for using this book. The little girl is my 5 year old niece who I have had to wait along time for as my brother did not have children until he was 43.

  4. Please include me in the drawing as I have never outgrown my love for dolls. (And I'm almost 71 years young.) Have 3 granddaughters who would enjoy one of these quilts. Thank you.

  7. these little dollys are adorable. I would love to make a bunch of them and string them on a clothesline in my laundry area using 30's fabrics.
    also would love to make a baby quilt with them as a welcome to my new niece that will arrive in May
    thanks!

  9. A quilt with all the dolls would be such a treat to make for my 6 month old grandbaby Ella. She was a premie and now is doing great and a quilt with these adorable dolls would help brighten her room.

  10. I would have to say that the little girl in me wants to have little dresses on a wall quilt to look at. These little Dolls are so sweet and they appeal to the little kid that somehow still sings inside when I see pretties.

    Smiles,
