I can't wait to see this book. I've just started quilting this past December and I am really enjoying exploring the different types of styles of quilt making. I haven't found my niche just yet but I like the smaller projects as I am always so anxious to see the outcome and just can't wait months and months to see what it will look like in the end. :) I really love the table runners and quilts you have been making lately.

Wendy said...

I have just stumbled across your blog via Lazy Gal blog and Wow, am I ever glad I did. I am loving your series of quilts that appear to be what quilts were originally all about .... at least in the early days of the US. You have really inspired me to head in this direction. Thanks so much for that and keep on quilting!!
