String Quilt, my first":

OH MY GOSH! If you like string quilts just wait until you see the new book that AQS is putting out by Karen Griska! I know it's at the printing/manufacturers now so it will be out in the stores by the end of summer, I'm guessing. I had the pleasure of seeing the "mock up" book before it was printed. YOU WILL FAINT. HINT: Don't throw away your selveges! LOVED your string quilt by the way. Really pretty.

I pondered for a day wondering .... "hmmmm was someone playing a joke? Mark Lipinski, the real Mark Lipinski, who has a magazine, been on Simply Quilts and more really leave a message on MY Blog. Well, I decided to write him an email and ask .... I mean if you want to know something shouldn't you get your answer from the 'horses mouth' as my grandmother use to say. So I got up my nerve and wrote Mr. Lipinski ....... and he answered, the real Mark Lipinski:
