I was very excited when I went to your website as I
love to quilt but have felt intimidated because I, for the life
of me, can't sew a straight line . I always buy too much fabric
because my math is not perfect. I felt immediately drawn to your
book title and description.
I wanted to write and tell you how inspirational your
book The Careless Quilter is. From the first words, I was hooked.
I have been struggling with my quilting, trying to pre-plan and get
everything just right. And your book was just what I needed. I am
recommending it to all my friends.

Your approach has given me endless ideas to develop. Thank you for
expanding my quilting horizons. The Careless Quilter
is perfectly delightful and most helpful.

After reading about your quilt "Afternoon in
Paradise" I realized I have been harboring the idea of a quilt like
this for some time. You have unlocked the door and freed that idea.

I settled into your book while we were traveling,
and quite enjoyed it. You were so inspiring about just diving in
and doing it , that if I had been at home, I would have grabbed
cutters and fabric and jumped in.
I find beginning quilters so
dreadfully timid and worried about technique - they never think about
what they like or how to experiment and try things. So I quite
enjoyed your attitude and have placed the book in the hands of all my
timid quilting cohorts.
As you may have noticed, I studiously avoid symmetry but
your philosophy could just as easily be applied to asymmetry. I am
glad to have your book to add to my collection of authors I have known.

I enjoyed Kristin Millerís ideas on designing as you
go, because I know I will never sit down with coloured pencils and graph
paper to design a quilt. My way is just to start, and stop when itís
big enough. I must admit that it is sometimes not big enough, so this
method is not perfect. Using up odd pieces and what I have is really the
fun way for me to create.
