Ooooh a new Book on Quilting

In the next few days (hopefully this weekend) I will be reviewing a book that I got.  The book was a gift from the author, Marguerita McManus.  The book is Finish Almost Any Quilt.

This book shows the method I use for Quilt As You Go. It is very versatile.  I was thrilled when I emailed a thank you to Ms. McManus and she told me that I was a part of the inspiration for the book.   I have done a preliminary read through of the book.  I will be going through the book again before I do my review. 
If you want to know "how Gene does it" AND how to quilt your own quilts, this is The Book. (you can do a king size quilt or even BIGGER this way.)

I hope you are as excited about this as I am. I love that she covered every aspect I would have wanted to tell you.  I do suggest going through the entire book before jumping into quilting your quilt.  (patience my dear, you may find a tip that makes life easier, or an alternate way to do it.)
Review as soon as I can get to it. I promise!

Several people have had good tutorials on this, but somehow my brain has still not grasp quilt as you go. I'm waiting for your review!

This looks like just what I have been waiting for but it is only available for Kindle on so I might have to order from the US

I enjoy reading your blog and when I saw this book, I knew it was made for me. I have a lot of quilt tops that need to be finished, but alas I need to have a simpler way.
A giveaway would be perfect!
