Friday Give-Away – Terri Thayer’s Quilting Mystery Books

Friday Give-Aways from the Quilting Gallery

Congratulations to #19 Sue Cahill for winning last week’s give-away of a free online class and 1 metre of Indigo-dyed fabric from Quilting Weekly and Wendy Nash.

Follow the adventures of Dewey Pellicano, a Silicon Valley techie, who inherits her mother’s quilt shop. She knows little about quilting, but even less about murder. When the buyer for her shop gets killed at a huge quilting convention, Dewey meets up with Buster Healy, homicide detective. Their attraction is swift and steamy. Another murder, at the far-out fashion show, leads Dewey down a path she will continue on – finding the person responsible for the murder.

Author Terri Thayer has been quilting for over 25 years and has worked in quilt shops, at major quilt conventions and taught quilting. She blogs every Friday at Killer Hobbies. You can also friend her on Facebook. She loves to hear from fans of Dewey. Terri was also a guest blogger last February.

This week’s give-away is one set of the three Dewey Pellicano quilting mystery books. If we get more than 100 comments, then a second set will also be given away. To enter the contest, please leave a comment below. The contest closes December 11, 2009.


Reminder: This is the last weekend to enter the Holiday Traditions Quilt Contest. Voting starts next Tuesday.

P.S. If you’re reading this on Facebook, please click through to the blog post to leave your comment. Entries on Facebook will not be considered.

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congratulations to #1 Bernadine Riley and #87 Debi R.. You’re going to love these books. Happy reading.
