    I'm just in awe that one can take a picture and turn it into such a lovely quilt! The whole process baffles me. How did you learn to do this? It's a wonderful quilt!

    Dear Girl,
    I hope you will let us know when the book is ready and how we can obtain it. I'm at the top of the list of buyers! Are you self-publishing?

    Most likely, I will be self-publishing. I received some really good advice from Judy Martin about how and why to self-publish, so we'll see where it takes me. :)

    That looks great so far!

    I am impressed with your photo re-creation in the centre panel, and even more so when I read that you taught yourself to do it! Let me know when your book comes out,
    Dawn. I would be very interested! thnx...

    What a wonderful memory in fabric. It will last a lifetime and you child will cherish the time 'in quilt' for years to come. Thank you for showing.
