A Book Review and Giveaway: Quilts Made with Love

550 comments » books, contests, fun

This was a hard review for me to start writing because, in all honesty, I struggled to narrow down all that I want to say about this book and its author. Rachel Griffith, the author of the new Quilts Made with Love, is an amazing person to know, and an absolutely fabulous quilt designer. I’ve known and worked with Rachel for a couple of years now, and through the stress of maintaining a blog, keeping up with her four kiddos, and writing a book (!), she always remains positive, motivated, and utterly inspiring. Rachel has a knack for designing quilts that can be used for really every occasion. She understands that the sentimentality that goes along with the gift of a quilt speaks loudly in times of happiness or sadness. One of my favorite things about this book is that it is divided into two different themes: Quilts to Celebrate, and Quilts to Comfort.

Rachel’s beautiful aesthetic is demonstrated magnificently throughout the book. Each quilt’s fabric selections match the style that she was trying to achieve flawlessly. The quilts shown in the “Quilts to Celebrate” section are bright, cheery, and thoughtful, where the quilts shown in the “Quilts to Comfort” section are more subdued, but are absolutely gorgeous. No matter what you’re looking for, one thing is for sure: when you open this book, you will be able to pick the appropriate quilt for whatever situation you or your loved ones are faced with.

As I rapidly approach my third trimester of pregnancy, I see so many quilts in this book that I would love to have adorning my nursery! One of my favorites is called Sweet Cheeks. How cute is this quilt?!

Another quilt that I just keep coming back to is called Oh Happy Day. It’s bright, happy, and keeps putting a smile on my face! The best thing about this quilt is that it can be easily adapted to anyone’s style.

In total, the book has 19 flawless designs; each of which with its own special meaning. Some of the other gorgeous designs included are below.

Now, because I love this book so much, I was eager to get it in the hands of as many people as possible. You know what that means, right? It’s giveaway time!

    Lovin’ the simplicity of many of her quilts. It is encouraging to see that beautiful quilts do not have to be complex or really difficult.Also like the sweet and cheerful colors she has used as her demos.

    The girls in my quilting guild select worthy recipients in our town and gift them a personalized quilt that we collectively create. Rachel’s book would inspire us as we continue this mission.

    My grandson wants a quilt. He just turned 7. He had a sleep over at Grammy’s house and sat down with my quilt books and magazines. Went through all of them showing what he liked which was pretty much all. He even asked how I do it. He amazed me.

    I would love to win this book and give it to my friend Sharon. She has inspired me to quiilt, taken the time to rip out my less than perfect seams and all the while keeping me totally interested. I think we could and would make a quilt together from these lovely patterns.

  18. Ann Says:
    10/08/2013 9:03 am

    I would definitely make one of these quilts for my very good friend who has moved all the way across the country. East coast to West coast. She is the other half of my quilting soul and I miss her. I also might be able to make a few for the grandkids!

    I’d love to win a copy of this book to share with my Mom. She’s been a quilter, but now suffers from dementia and isn’t able to follow quilt patterns any more. She likes to look at quilting books with me though. Sometimes we work on projects together and this book looks like it has some patterns that would appeal to both of us.

    I have purposed to make quilts using fabric from my stash to give to the Children’s hospital in our town. I think there is such a need for warmth and comfort for these children who are in a hospital situation. My own son was hospitalized when he was 3 weeks old, so I know the kind of stress that can bring on the family. Thanks so much for the review and giveaway.

    10/08/2013 9:55 am

    I believe my mother would like a quilt from this book. She has a quilt from her mother and since I am the only child who sews…one from me would be nice. She downsized to an apartment a couple years ago and no longer has a large bed, so a smaller one to stay all cozy would be wonderful. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I’ve been admiring Rachel Griffith’s work for some time now and she never disappoints!! I would love to have her book. My family is insanely large and I’m always wanting to make a quilt for everyone but I think I would probably make one for my sister who is expecting her first grandchild this year so they could snuggle together. Thanks for the opportunity.

  90. Terry Estes Says:
    10/08/2013 2:08 pm

    I would make quilts for my four children and six grandchildren. I made sure about 15 years ago each of my children had quilts from each of MY grandmothers (I have three). There is no feeling like snuggling underneath a blanket made by someone who loves you. You get to experience the memories and love all over again.

  94. Barb Says:
    10/08/2013 2:45 pm

    I need to make a really special quilt for my sister. I don’t get to see her often enough and want to make a quilt to let her know how often she is in my thoughts. And then there’s my granddaughter who does not have a bed sized quilt from me yet. The book looks beautiful!

    My daughter and my daughter in law as well as myself would like to receive one of these quilts. Of course, I will be the one making them, something which I have not done for many years because of working 12 hour shifts taking care of folks in the hospital. But, I am retired now and plan on taking up the craft I once loved again :)

    Hi there. Well I have my youngest “baby girl” who is going to be starting her family within the year. She will definitely need a couple of baby quilts for the crib and floor and perhaps the stroller. And unfortunately I have too many dear friends that are either home bound or going through cancer treatments that would greatly benefit from a blanket to cuddle with.

  137. peg Says:

    Most of the quilts I make are given away. There are several patterns in this book that would help use up my stash.

  138. Beverly Sechrest Says:
    10/09/2013 8:12 am

    This book will be a wonderful addition, especially since I work with a group of women from my church who provide comfort quilts for the sick, homebound, and homeless; we’re always on the lookout for more ideas & patterns for quilts that give comfort.

  139. Sandy Diehl Says:

    10/09/2013 9:43 am

    I would love to get this book. I’m unemployed right now and have a daughter and a lovely girl my son is dating who would both love one of these quilts. My extra daughter and I could bond while making one. I appreciate the chance to receive one.

    When my physically and mentally challenged Sister was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she was given her own quilt by a guild in her community. This still hangs in her memory at her group home.

    My grandmother has hand quilted all of her life, and has given all of the grandchildren their own quilt over the years. I just started quilting myself this past year, and though I am drawn toward more modern quilting styles, there is just so much love sewn into her quilts. I would love to be able to sew a quilt to give to her one day.

  148. Cheryll Reiter Says:
    10/09/2013 10:11 am

    My very good friend and former pastors wife has just gone through a liver transplant. After several years of a failing liver she is now struggling to recover. I would like to give her a “quilt made with love” so she can feel the support and caring so many people feel for her.

    10/09/2013 11:02 am

    The woman I would like to have this book is Barbara Scofield. Barbara has made so many quilts as gifts of love for other people. She is generous and kind to people who are experiencing upheaval in their families like the sick little boy in her town who wanted a train quilt. She also expressed her love for her cousin with a lovely yellow and blue quilt. Her husband received a “Hill Billy” quilt in celebration of his rural origins. She who gives should receive a wonderful book like this to add to her collection. Maybe she’ll let me borrow it–or better yet, make me a quilt from the book.

  160. Dennice Davis Says:
    10/09/2013 11:03 am

    I love the notion of quilting for love, both because you love to quilt and to spoil those you love with a quilt. I would love to win “Quilts Made With Love” for my husband of 42 years. He has been so patient with me and my passion for quilting. I give away most of the quilts I have made including for our church for fundraising and to warm those in nursing homes and VA Hospital etc but he deserves a quilt just for him to cozy up with, just like a hug from me!

  161. Chrystal Higgins Says:
    10/09/2013 11:04 am

    What a thrill it would be to share this book with the members of one of my quilt guilds. We have hundreds of quilts each year both to be given to the Linus Project as well as needy local children.
    Thank you for the possibility of winning this book!

  165. Judy Says:
    10/09/2013 11:26 am

    The front cover looks like a quilt that I could make from leftover fabrics. Our local church group pieces about 50 quilt tops each year for a local mission and there are often leftover pieces of fabric.

  166. Nancy Says:

    What a great book this looks to be! I would love to make a few of these quilts using both comfort and celebration themes, for some of the many folks here in Colorado who were victims of the flooding. I think they are going to need a little comfort and some celebration this winter.

    I have so many I would love to give quilts to…just can’t make them fast enough! They are my ‘hugs for…’ quilts…mostly given to my girlfriends when they are at a difficult point in life and just need a cheery hug for the times I can’t be there in person. I love the simplicity of the quilts in Quilts Made with Love…They would go together fast and look great!

  176. Susan Says:

    I think you have an awesome collection of quilts in your book. I make quilts every year for each of now with a total of seven grandchildren. August, our daughter had her first baby and any one of them would be wonderful to make for the new baby as well for the others also. Good luck with your expecting arrival.
    Thanks a bunch for this chance, I would be blessed to share them. Vicki Barlow

Max is her dog, a Pug, and I can feel the pain and battle she is going through as she has to say goodbye to her beloved friend. It is so heart wrenching when these decisions must be made. A quilt is always a source of comfort and I would love to make one of Rachel’s for her.

    I started quilting after my Grandmother passed. She had left behind enough precut pieces to do 5 quilts. I managed to get the Broken Dishes to my brother for Christmas last year. The fabric dated from 1920-1950. I learned how to love quilting from the love my grandmother had also quilted with love.

    themes are a great way to get the ideas flowing..the quilt made with love I would like to make would be for my daughter’s mother-in-law who recently lost her own daughter…unexpectedly. Perhaps I can ease her loneliness if just a bit. Thank you for the chance to win this book!

    I make charity quilts for the Mayo Clinic/St. Mary’s Hospital Pediatric Infusion Therapy Unit (kid’s chemo) in MN. I take the quilts when I go for my own folloow-up visits. (I am taking 12 kid-sized quilts when I go back in November!) There are so many brave children receiving treatment in that unit who would be comforted by a quilt of their own that is made with love. I am always looking for simple, colorful quilt ideas so I can vary the types of quilts that I donate. I regularly read the ps I Quilt blog and love her style!

She was a quilter and had made a quilt for me for my wedding. This book looks like it has many quilts made with lots of love and would be perfect for this multi-generational project.

    My son married a woman with five children and they now have two more–and two grandchildren! All of them need quilts asap. The quilts in this book look as though they would be quick to piece and fast to quilt. I’d like to be able to make them as soon as possible, as quickly as possible–can I make 10 quilts in a year? I think I could!

    I’ve only completed a few quilts but I wouldlike to make one for my beautiful daughter. Her favorite dog ate her favorite comforter just recently, and I think the time is right to dedicate a quilt just for her. I love the look of these quilts – bright, fun, and can certainly be made witha modern flair, which would suit my daughter just perfectly!

    Who doesn’t love a home made quilt to snuggle under? Of course everyone would love a quilt by someone that loves them. I am in the process of making my 7 brothers and 2 sisters a quilt made by me stitched with loving thoughts. I have only 2 more to do. I also make quilts for my Nieces and Nephews for their wedding gift as a celebration of love in their new journey together, and then when the babies come, well they need a quilt to snuggle under from the heart as well. Quilting is my passion in life!!

The quilts serve to remind the kids that we care about them and continue to support them after they leave. So, the quilts both celebrate their release and bring comfort during their transition to home. I would love to make a quilt for one of those kids.

    Four years ago, my nieces mother passed away suddenly. I took up quilting and have been making handmade baby quilts for nieces and nephews since that time. When I found out my niece was pregnant, I contacted her and asked her to tell me when she found out if she was expecting a boy or a girl because I would make her a quilt. She told me she would treasure it because her mom always made quilts for people and she knows she will miss having that quilt. She will be comforted with my substitute. I haven’t started her quilt yet and would love to be able to use some of the ideas in this book. Hope you pick me!

    I am always interested in anything that says “Made with Love” as Love is my last name. In fact my quilt labels always start with Labour of Love.
    I make baby quilts for the ladies I work with, so far in 3 years I have made 5, and I also make them for the people my husband works with. So far I have made 6 for his office.
    Baby quilts are fun to make because you get to use bright fun prints that you might not normally use.
    Thank you.

    My sister is the mother of a special-needs son, my amazing nephew Graham, who is now 4. Though he has a whole host of special needs — he is profoundly visually and hearing impaired, he has a trach and a feeding tube, facial palsy, kidney problems and is nonverbal and does not walk — his mom has never allowed his disabilities to dictate who he’s going to be. Graham inspired my sister to start her own business making cute quilted trach ties for kids with special needs. She spends all day sewing for her business and to make life a little better for moms and kids with disabilities, so I’d love to win this book for her. She deserves a warm and cozy quilt that’s just for her!

    I make very few items for my own home. My greatest joy is to make quilts for others and experience their joy when they receive it! This would be a lovely collection of patterns to work with. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’m obsessed with making donation quilts and I’m always looking for new patterns to inspire me…otherwise, I might – and have – make 5 of the same!

    I would love to own and view a copy of Rachel Griffith’s quilting book. I, too, make “quilts to celebrate”-mostly for new babies and “quilts to comfort”-mostly charity quilts, wounded warrior quilts, and quilts for kids, but I have done a few for a couple close friends. I love simple and I love color. Hope I win!

However, the recipient should and would be my dear friend Marianne who not only introduced me to the art of quilting, but is a great teacher and provides limitless support. She is a true gem!

    Quilts that celebrate and comfort would be appropriate for the residents of Hidden Valley House, a transition home for abused women and children. I’m sure the staff of the residence would enjoy seeing some new patterns for a change.

    I just learned a dear friend is dying of cancer. It’s a fast-growing terminal type. I would love to make him a quilt in time for him to use if he chooses to undergo chemotherapy. My brother had chemo and was always cold, so I would like to warm and comfort my friend. And then after, when he’s gone, his loving wife of 20 years can keep it and it will be a reminder of him and their undying love for one another.

    I just read and saw your review Rachel Griffith’s Quilts Made With Love. I fell in love with quilting just a short time ago and I fell hard. When I go to make a quilt it has always been for someone else. When looking for patterns and then the fabric, I have to see the recipient in the pattern and material and it usually takes me hours and sometime multiple quilt shops to find what I’m looking for. I saw family and friends in the quilt patterns/photos in Ms. Griffith’s book. Thank you for sharing. Please put my name in the drawing for her book.

    Every quilt I make is made with love. I have been sewing quilts for over 30 years. Sewing was what helped me keep my sanity while raising 4 kids, through my divorce and working as many as 4 jobs at a time. I not only survived, I have thrived thanks to my sewing and quilting. I have lost count of the number of quilts I’ve made. (Last count was over 1500.) Now I get to sew for grandkids. This book would help inspire me to make even more quilts. Thanks Lydia Torres

    Who wouldn’t I like to make a quilt full of love for – the list is long. I’ve recently retired and moved. There are so many former coworkers and neighbors that I would love to honor with quilts. I have only been quilting for about fifteen months but I’ve managed to finish nine quilts. Each one has been a labor of love. I am always looking to learn from different quilters so that I can expand my skills and find my own style.

    I am blessed with childhood memories of watching my sweet grandmother lower her quilting frame (using pulleys) from the ceiling of my grandparents’ country home.
    She was meticulous, patient, and wise, and created such beautiful things… with love on her heart.
    I wasn’t really a Barbie girl (my two cousins were), but our Barbies were unbelievably dressed. Today, I cannot IMAGINE making those spectacular TINY outfits!
    A natural teacher, my grandmother always provided the tools, materials, guidance (and encouragement) for the next skill to master, be it sewing, cooking, gardening or canning. For crocheting, knitting, tatting (sadly, though I have her shuttles, I lost that skill), or embroidery, I have her to thank.
    My family & I lost her 37 years ago — I was 14. Still, she is with me, daily, in everything I do.
    What I did NOT learn to do or experience from her, first-hand, was quilting.
    Instead, I grew up, spent 3 decades in corporate management, working 70-80 hour work weeks, destroying my health, and straying about as far away from my country roots and raising as I could get.
    Long story a little less long, the last three years have been amazing: I’ve had wonderfully productive gardens, I’ve canned, I have time to cook healthy meals at night, and I’ve been sewing, and crocheting, and knitting. AND, with the arrival of my 8.5 month old first grand baby, I have started quilting. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
    I no longer have an income (it wasn’t for lack of trying… there are just so many times you can be told you’re over qualified… and some health issues didn’t help), I no longer have an impressive corporate title, and $$$ is very very tight.
    BUT, my new title, “Uma”, stands for “grandmother”. I had an **exemplary** example of what a wonderful grand mother should be, and know, first hand, how much of a difference a grandmother can make in the life of a little person.
    I watch this precious little guy 3-4 days a week and have every plan to teach him how to cook, can, crochet, knit, and garden (I taught his father, my only child, how to cook and crochet… as he grew up, I didn’t make the time to knit or garden…) AND, I am going to teach my grand baby (and any other children my only child and his wife bless me with) how to quilt, if he wants to learn!
    I consider my new “job” the most important one of my life and will make sure my grand baby knows about his great great grandmother as I do.
    Congratulations on writing a book while mom to FOUR children (!!!)
    Kind regards,

    I am fairly new to making quilts, but I enjoy the process and excited to learn new techniques. I have been thinking of making a quilt for my younger sister who got sober through AA, lost her only daughter who was age 20, divorced and then discovered she had breast cancer. Now she is a breast cancer survivor. We grew up being very close to each other and now we are miles apart. It has been hard and when I saw the name of the book thought this would be great to send her “A quilt made with love and give her comfort” we don’t get to see each other much. The name of this book reminded me of her and I would love to be able to make her one of these quilts.

  409. Sharon Gerstman Says:

    I would give this book to my daughter Deanne. She introduced me to quilting a few years ago, and now has a 2 year old son who was a preemie, so she hasn’t had a whole lot of time for quilting. This book would help her get back into it. It looks like a beautiful book. Thank you for the opportunity to win it.

    If I could use this book to make a quilt, I would make one for my daughter, Kate, who’s now living in New Mexico, far from our home in Michigan. I would use fabrics that remind her of the natural beauty of home.

    10/10/2013 5:09 am

    I have a friend that is a great quilter and she is always ready to try new things. The pictures in this book show quilts that are definitely not her style but I know she would be up to the challenge of not doing those quilts in her colorway. It would be great fun for the two of us to do a challenge quilt from the book.

  431. Pat Welfare Says:
    10/10/2013 5:18 am

    I would one of these books to give to my “quilting buddy,” Patricia Atkin. We get together whenever we can, two or three times a week, and work on projects. We often give each other homework to have done by the next time that we meet. If I gave it to her, I know that she would share with me. So it is like getting two books.

  432. Ramona Christensen Says:
    10/10/2013 5:28 am

    I would love to win this book. I was taught to quilt by a dear friend and loved the peacefulness of it as well as the beauty of the finished products. I had a car accident which damaged my brain. I lost a great deal of memory. I played memory games to try to retrain my brain only to get terrible headaches, so I decided I would quilt instead of the games. My husband got out my machine, we went to the fabric store and I excitedly sat down to quilt only to find all memory of quilting was lost as well. I was devastated. I went and bought all the books on quilting, magazines patterns and read them all. I made my sister a quilt for her birthday. I was afraid the quilter would see my mistakes and send it back, instead she Said ” I can see you put a lot of work into this quilt keep quilting” I was so happy. Now I read all books and am planning patterns in my head. I struggle and make mistakes, but they are mistakes of love.

  433. Evelyn Frasier Says:
    10/10/2013 5:29 am

    My daughter-in-law would love this book. She has recently got into quilting and we love sharing patterns and techniques and, of course, shopping for more fabric. She can’t get enough magazines or books to look at for colorful ideas to get her creative juices flowing.

  434. Fran Holland Says:
    10/10/2013 5:32 am

    I would love this book as I have quilted for over 30 + years and still love it and want to learn new patterns. I have promised my nephew a new quilt for graduation and I also have a new grandchild on the way!! So exciting.

    10/10/2013 5:32 am

    I would love to win “Quilts Made With Love”, one of these quilts would go to my daughter. She is not only my daughter but also my best friend. She deserves extra love such as a quilt as she gives of her time to others. She has no children, yet she is a Daisy leader for Girl Scouts. She initiates fund raisers for fellow workers in need and yet asks nothing for herself. She helps keep me grounded while I deal with two parents 90 and 89 one with Alzheimer’s and one with Dementia. She is my HERO!

  436. Annette Ackley Says:
    10/10/2013 5:42 am

    10/10/2013 5:50 am

    I have 2 granddaughters who will graduate in May and I make all of the grandkids a quilt for graduation. Just looking at some of the quilts in this book I think I could come up with two really neat ones for the girls. Half of the fun is looking at patterns that will suit there personalities, then finding fabric in their colors to fit the pattern. I would love to win a copy of this book and put my quilting juices to work.

    10/10/2013 7:54 am

    I just entered the quilting world a couple of years ago. My mom began quilting approx. 8 years ago in an attempt to help get her mind off of the cancer and all of the treatments that she was undergoing. Mom took to it like a duck in water and it was such a joy to see all of the wonderful and beautiful quilts that she created. Unfortunately, mom did not win her fight after six years of valiantly trying. After this horrible loss, I began finishing the quilts that she had started and was unable to complete. I found such a closeness with her by doing this, that I am now working on quilts of my own and loving every stitch! Mom left me such a wonderful stash of material and have many more quilts to look forward to sewing.
    My children and I all now have an ample supply of quilts so I plan to make quilts to give to those in need. Even though finances might be tight for me, there is always someone in worse shape than I am and I believe in helping others in any way I can. I know that my mom will be smiling down when she sees how her material is being put to good use!

Perhaps this is the one!- to have them purchase for that next big step in quilting – achievement through design! You made my day! Thanks (BTW would love a copy to check it out further)

    I have a friend who is a great lover of modern quilts, although she does not sew. She has a newborn and a toddler. After renting for years, she and her husband moved into their own home just after their youngest was born this summer. Add sickness and house guests to the mix and you can see she’s had plenty on her plate. I’d love to make her one of these fresh and comforting quilts to let her know how special she is!

    98% of the quilts I make these days are for charity which I give through our WSQ Spokane Chapter, Mountain of Quilts, at our annual quilt show. I am always looking for quilt patterns and books to make new and interesting fun quilts, which I give to many charities through this great organization of which I proudly belong! These quilts bring great comfort to children and veterans. All quilting books and magazines that I no longer use I also donate to the chapter library for others to use and carry on the tradition.

    I love that the book is divided into two sections–celebrating and comforting. I make a baby quilt for every new baby at my workplace–it is so wonderful to provide a custom, cozy quilt. I also know that when people in my life have tough or sad times, a quilt is just what is needed. My family received a quilt that was given to my mother in law during hospice care–would love to keep the chain unbroken.

    I really enjoyed making Impromptu, a quilt pattern by Rachel. She writes a great pattern. I donated the quilt to a charitable organization and it went for $1100. Others like her pattern too. I will probably make then next quilt for a family member. They all love quilts.

    I have done a couple of Rachel’s quilts…one being the “Full Swing” pattern on Fat Quarter Shop. I did that one for my daughter’s high school graduation. Her patterns are super easy to follow and all so beautiful. My son graduates next year so I think the black, grey and yellow one would be great for him…maybe changing out the yellow for lime or red. I hope I win…it looks like a great book.

    I am just beginning to Quilt and would love to have this book. There is so much fabric that is beautiful and need to be put into a Quilt, only if I can decide which Quilt to make. So many decisions so little time!

    I would like to win this book. Quilting is very important to me. I have made a pact with myself that every close member of my family as well as childhood friends will receive a quilt made, just with that particular person in mind, while I remain on this earth. Of the number that I need to make,six have been completed. However, many more need to be completed and perhaps this book will inspire me.

    After working full time, raising my family, and many years of quilting I decided to go back to school and finish my degree.All through school for the past two years, I have longed to quilt again, but with the class load, I am not able to. I do continue to look at the sites,look through my fabric stash wishing to be finished so that I can get back to my passion,Quilting! This book would be a comfort for me for the next semester, giving me inspiration to look forward to, until I am able to quilt again.

    A young couple I know just had their first baby, a beautiful baby girl. She has been struggling with some feeding issues. I have been looking for just the right pattern to make something modern, yet warm and cuddly. This book looks great. I would love to have it to find a pattern for their quilt.

    I make prayer shawls for many who need comfort of some sort. I see these as bringing a smile to someones face, comfort to someone in need of a loving arm around them, or peace to someone in turmoil. These designs would do just that and the colors Rachel uses in hers are just cheery and ideal. Certainly these patterns (if I win the book) would be put to loving use.

  538. Pat Holycross Says:
    10/13/2013 1:31 pm

    My mom is a devoted and exceptional hand quilter. The amazing fact is, she is 87 years old and quilts at least 1 hour a day. She enjoys her quilting group, never tiring when there are more books to review, more discussions about new patterns and quilting ideas and direction. She and her ladies would love to win this book.

    Who would like to receive one of the quilts from “Quilts Made with Love”? Any one of the babies at my parish who receives it at the time of their baptism. For several years I have donated an afghan or quilt that I make specifically for that special occasion. I’m always looking for new, easy ideas and from what I see here, this hits the spot!!

  549. Betty Edwards Says:

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and appearance. I must say you have done a very good
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for
    me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
