Here's a gem of a book that I'd like to send to a new home. No way would I be letting go of it if I hadn't discovered that I've somehow acquired two copies of it. (You say I need a little more organization in my quilt room?)
The book is Happy Endings - Finishing the Edges of Your Quilt by Mimi Dietrich. I can attest it's a very helpful book with clear illustrations. It covers finishing your quilt without binding, using mitered corners, rounded corners, bias binding, scalloped edges, prairie points, and ruffled edgings. That's just a sampling of what you'll find in this book.
If you think you may like to add this book to your collection, just say so in the comments. To make things interesting, please also tell all of us if you make time to quilt and/or sew year round or do you find you only have time for such during the more inclement months of winter. (And if you do quilt year round, I want to know your secret!)
Let's make this short and sweet. I'll close comments tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 26th, and post a winner drawn from names entered sometime Thursday.
Happy Endings to you all!
