I have another of her books - The Crazy Quilt Handbook, and it is also full of inspiration and great stitch combinations. You have added a lot of elegant stitches to your Strawberries 'n Chocolate.

I have that book too (actually I think I have every book that JBM has ever done)...it's also one of my favourite resources. Did I mention before that I love the name 'Strawberries and Chocolate'?
