I ordered this book with Christmas money (thanks Mom) and when my Amazon box arrived there were two City Quilts: 12 Dramatic Projects Inspired by Urban Views by Cherri House. A quick look at the packing slip and I paid for two only meaning to order one. Then I thought, instead of the hassle of a return, I’ll let my fat-finger mistake become a gift to a lucky Craft Gossip reader. Leave a comment by Dec 18, 2010 to get a chance to win! International entries welcome.

    What an inspiring book! I love the abstract structures you get when you zoom in or out of city views (especially when flying or looking at the wide expanse of a building). This book sounds fantastic, thanks for the chance to win it!
