Hi Monica and Alaura, I have purchased your Beautiful Book, I would like to see you develop PDF Patterns for Precious Pieces, Gidget and The Happiness Quilts I feel that is about the level of my quilting ability at this time. Thank you, for all the many hours you have both put into the collation and publishing your book. It will be well used by myself as a reference guide I am at an age where I cannot manage large size quilts.

Monica, the additional quilts are such a joy to see! I would like to see the Precious Pieces Sampler quilt made into a PDF pattern, but my favorite quilt is your Shades of Indigo. It is beautiful (but beyond my ability at present.) I received the PDF Companion book today and I am so excited to have your instructions at my fingertips every day. Many thanks to you and Alaura for all your hard work!
