Hi friends, In honour of Canada Day, this week I decided to go with a bit of Can-con for the weekly giveaway. Quilts of Prince Edward Island: The Fabric of Rural Life is a beautiful book published by Atlantic Canadian publishing company Nimbus, detailing the handmade quilts of PEI – and the amazing stories behind them. Author Sherrie Davidson spent almost 20 years researching quilts that span over 200 years, from the 1700s to the 1970s, and she assembles her findings here in a scrapbook-style book that features huge photographs, clippings from newspapers and diaries, and, of course, the stories behind these handmade treasures. (The official launch for this book is tomorrow, June 29, 7 pm, at Beaconsfield House in Charlottetown, PEI. If you're interested, why not stop by?) To enter to win, leave a comment on this post: tell me, is there a special quilt or blanket in your family? Where did it come from, what's it like, why is it special to you? I'm interested to hear your stories! Comments will be accepted until Monday, July 5 at 11: 59 p.m.; I'll post a winner here on Tuesday, July 6. Good luck!
