I tell ALL in my tongue-in-cheek guide to quilting disaster. You won't feel intimidated by "perfect" quilts any more---not after you see how I started out. I confess to having made every mistake you can think of and then some, proving there's hope for everyone. This book is anti-intimidation for quilters, guaranteed to lift your spirits.
(48 pages/plenty of disgusting photos, some in color, (c)1994)
|Please note. In the back of the book, on page 45, there is a paragraph stating that if you send a large self-addressed stamped envelope, you get a present. Please don't send the SASE. We ran out of the presents last year. This book was first published in 1994. We can no longer honor the "freebie" after 14 years. Really.|

Thank you for writing it [How Not To Make A Prize-Winning Quilt] and for sharing such happiness in the world. I laughed and laughed and laughed at myself and all my angst as a newbie. You made my day!

Just wanted to let you know I gave your book as a Christmas present to my quilting friends – they LOVED IT! Your sense of humor is delightful.
