A Little Citrus - Cindy Grisdela Art Quilts

“A Little Citrus” 2015 Cindy Grisdela

The blog tour for my new book–Artful Improv: Explore Color Recipes, Building Blocks & Free Motion Quilting–starts today.

Each weekday from today until Wednesday, October 19, you can visit a new blog and get a different perspective on the book. If you leave a comment on the blog, you will be entered to win a copy of the book, generously donated by C&T Publishing. US winners will receive a hard copy, and international winners will get the eBook.

I’m very grateful to these talented artists who are participating in the Tour and helping me get the word out about my new book!

    Looking forward to learning more about your book. I plan to try something in this style myself and have even bought a new selection of Cherrywood fabric to play with!
