At my local quilt guild last night, one of the women brought her newest three quilting books/magazines and passed them around. The one everyone raved over was your mini-quilt book. Actually I was surprised by it. I expected merely a group of patterns for making specific little quilts. As an art quilter I prefer making my own patterns. But your book had lots of wonderful inspirations and starting points for me! I think your book is a great addition to a quilting library regardless of how experienced or inexperienced a quilter you are.

A friend sent me your book for Christmas. I used the photo quilt pattern using a photo of my uncles old smoke house in Kentucky. I added a small piece of wood from the smokehouse and information about the smokehouse printed on fabric and attached it below the photo. It turned out great! I am sending it to my 82 year old uncle. I also made the Warbler quilt as a gift for a friend. I just love the book and patterns since I can finish them up quickly. I have an extremely hecktic work schedule and rarely have time to finish projects. So this is perfect. I have several more in the book I plan on completing with my personal touches. Thank you for such a enjoyable book.
