I fell in love with "modern" quilting and have been inspired beyond words by what I've found here. One of my first thoughts was "Why doesn't this girl have a book!!!?" -- so I'm just thrilled to know there is one coming.

    Seriously -- THRILLED!! (for YOU and for all of us who love your work.) and as others have mentioned -- Love the cover and name of the book!
