Sew Red Giveaway!

I was so excited when I received Sew Red in the mail earlier this week.  
It is a new sewing book written by Laura Zander and presented by Jimmy Beans Wool.  




Sew Red is a sewing book with a great cause, women's heart health awareness. Some of the profits from the sales of this book will be going to support The Heart Truth® and women's heart health education and research. 



As soon as I got the package in the mail I opened it and sat down to thumb through this book.  It is full of lovely, colorful photos and great sewing projects.





Celebrity designers, like Amy Butler, Ty Pennington, and Kaffe Fassett, have teamed up to provide both designs and tips for heart health.



This book has everything from quilts and pillows to bags and dresses.  And each project has easy to follow step by step directions and illustrations.
There are even full size pattern pieces in the back!



I love this stack of quilts!



And at the back of the book, they have some facts about heart disease and signs of heart disease to look out for.  



There are tips for heart healthy living and even some heart healthy recipes!



Would you like to check out this book?  Great! Cause I am giving one away!
