  20. Minis are fun because they can be finished quickly, which leads to a sense of accomplishment...sometimes important to avoid burnout! And they are so nice to hang up on the wall as "quilting art!"

  35. Really love the Summer Breeze Mini Quilt. I think your newest book is going to be on my list of must buy items. I have tons of mini charms and other than stockpiling them like the crazy quilt lady, I honestly have no specific plans for any of them. This book sounds like a definite need.

    I bought your Layers of Love Book (and the Spare Change Ruler) after watching your video on Missouri Star Quilt Co. I absolutely loved the Delainey's Twirls & Swirls Quilt and how you put that together. That's what sold me on wanting that book.

  66. Hi Lynne, I made a table runner with 2 rows of flying geese that you designed from a magazine, and didn't know about your layered patchwork method at all. And I thought you were a genius to write the pattern that way. Then I read that you had come up with the new method. I love it and thanks!
