    I just found your book on sale at Joann’s and finally bought it. I love it and may have to make all of the quilts(or my versions)!

    I love this book – just made the cover quilt for the Hands2Help challenge (you can see it here – ) and since I won my copy, it’s signed – and I love seeing that little inscription and signature in the front!! It just makes my day every time I see it!!
