eBook Review and a Winner

I was recently contacted by Fons and Porter and asked to do a review of one of their books. 
 It is their Log Cabin Quilt eBook. 
 You can download a copy for yourself right here.  
Now for the review.

The book was very straight forward and easy to follow. 
 If you have never made a log cabin block this had all the basic information in it.  
I liked the "tips" that they added.  
There were some unique versions and settings that would be worth checking out if you already know how to make the basic block. 
 Some of the visual effects from the setting choices were pretty cool.  

There are directions for adding piping to your binding and I did not know how to do that before, 
so I found that most interesting! 
 Also if you don't know how to join your binding in a miter as you end
 the directions for that are there as well.

I felt there was something for most people in this book.

I would recommend it to others as a good resource.

What kind of storage areas do you have for your fabric? Can you make it all so that you can see it and know what you have? I folded all of my fat quarters the same way and stored them by color in clear plastic shoe boxes. If I had nice open shelves I would have liked to store them by color there where I could see them all stacked by their color so that I could oogle my fabrics in their beauty on a regular basis. We buy it because of it's beauty, why lock it away where we can't see it. Then we don't know what we have, and we buy more and more and more. Well,I could use more, but that seems to be a regular problem that I have seen on many blogs. I just think it should all be out where we can see it. I would like to put nice shelves into my quilt room somewhere, I just don't have enough wall space left.. :( 

So Mamarock, if you will send me your address I will get this out in the mail to you!
