I have always found lighthouses fascinating. I have visited a couple and have some pictures I took of them that I could use as extra inspiration when I make one of these beauties. (fingers crossed)

I really love this one and I think it is a great piece to learn directional stitching to enhance a piece and give it movement.

I dream of being able to free motion quilt without heart palpatations! LOL Would love to win one of your books.

Thank you for offering a chance to win your book. I would love to own a lighthouse. Every summer we visit the lighthouse at Montauk, NY. Last fall we visited a few lighthouses in Florida. I never tire of looking at them. I do think I would get tired of rowing a boat everyday.

I would just like to live by a sea, any sea. Took look out at the ocean in all sorts of weather to see the play of colors....Sigh, I want to go back on vacation!

Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your book. I look forward to learning how to make the boats - and perhaps add some oars too.

Would love to make a lighthouse something for my hubby, who spent several years in his young life, living in the lighthouse keeper's house at Cape Hatteras. His dad was the first National Park Ranger for the Lighthouse/Park.
I am also so excited to watch your new episode on The Quilt Show on Monday.
