Words from Monica:

'This book is a celebration of my years as a quilt maker, teacher, pattern designer and now YouTube content creator with my daughter.

 It’s a colourful tips and techniques book designed to be your go-to when quilt as you go quilt making.

 It includes 5 small projects that you can use to practice each of the different joining methods and a gallery of my work to exemplify the use of the techniques in larger quilts.'

(Please note that the patterns for the quilts in the gallery are not in the book; they are there for inspiration.)

A similar question for you Monica. I pre-ordered my book (I think) and not sure I received acknowledgment. I hope I am on the list. When you have time an email would be good otherwise I will need to re-order. The book looks wonderful and is a credit to all your hard work.

I have asked to be included in your mailing list several times but never received any updates. I also preordered a hard copy of the new book but have not had any acknowledgement. I have met Monica and admire her work, so it's disappointing that your website thinks I'm invisible. Can you please check and get back to me. With thanks, Helen Yates
