  1. I love the use of negative space in most of these quilts! I have been inspired to use my smallish stacks of hoarded fabric! Lol

  2. I'm definitely going to visit the blogs. The book looks fantastic,and I bet the various bloggers put their own "looks" on her patterns. Looking forward to seeing them.

    These are beautiful. I love you peeps at FQS. I read your page every day but cannot always comment. I am taking care of my parents and it is a lot of work…. and taking care of my husband and myself is just more haha
    well, these quilts are stunning.
    Gerri is truly an artist. WOW

  4. I really like the big pillows. What would happen if you carried the design out to an 80 inch quilt? Thanks for this opportunity. LJBISME AT MSN DOT COM
