Today I have the honor of reviewing a book by our friend, Cheryl Wall of "Country Quilts" as part of her Blog Tour and Book Give Away.

You may remembering Cheryl from one of our past couple Buggy Barn Outdoor Quilt Shows. She’s been sitting at the Big Barn, under a display of her quilts, and signing books.
Her newest title, "At Home with Country Quilts" is an absolute winner! It’s packed with projects, one cuter than another! And today, Cheryl is giving you an opportunity to win an autographed copy just by posting on my blog to this post. I will be selecting a winner on August 16th.
Pam & I have always been fans of Cheryl and her primitive country style. And she likes to use plaids as much as we do! I also love the way she mixes patchwork and applique; the applique is always easy, and there's just enough, never over the top, so you never have to stop and ask yourself, do I really want to make this? Regardless, the answer will always be "Yes!"
And if you absolutely don't want to tackle any applique, Cheryl still has quilts for you. I think I've decided (it's a very difficult choice!) that this "Twilight Stars" is my favorite pieced quilt. It makes me want to head to the barn and get some fabric! But there are several other pieced-only quilts in the book, including a very cute "Shoo Fly Pie" and "Autumn Winds". And best of all, we can always count on Cheryl's piecing directions to be clear and accurate.
But, I really think I must begin "Night Blooms". It's calling my name...it's going to be a great table topper. So many quilts, so little time! This is a great book and you will want it for your library! Head over and order your copy today! And be sure to let us know if you'd like a kit for your favorite quilt!
