It’s Day Six of the blog tour for my new book, Artful Improv: Explore Color Recipes, Building Blocks & Free Motion Quilting. Today’s featured blogger is Heather Kojan at

Summer Breeze - Cindy Grisdela

Summer Breeze Class – Cindy Grisdelam

I met Heather several years ago at an art show in Maryland. She’s the founder and first president of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild, so we hit it off right away!

If you head over to Heather’s blog at you can read her take on the book. If you add a comment, you’ll be entered to win a copy of Artful Improv!

We have two more days in the Tour–tomorrow is Generation Q magazine and I’ll wrap it up on Wednesday, October 19. If you leave a comment on each 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.

The winners won’t be chosen until after the Tour is over on October 19, so even if you miss a day, you can go back and comment.

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!
