    Our guild makes the cutest dolls for the childrens ward in local hospitals.
    I’m happy to be a part of that. Oh, and I’d love to win this book as light fascinates me.

    I do not make dolls, I have never been good at the small fussy details that making dolls or teddys requires. However I would love to give Gloria’s latest techniques a go!!

    Have never made a doll, but have made doll clothes and doll blankets/quilts for young family members throughout the years.

    This Radiant Landscapes book looks amazing!!! Thanks for featuring it on your blog and for making a copy available to give away.

    I have never made a doll and am not really interested in that at this time. Love the new book!

    I made several dolls for my daughter – long ago. I now prefer to make clothes for her American Girl doll that she left with me and my own 2 dolls. I have been collecting Raggedy Ann patterns and plan to make a new one soon. The one my Mom made me for my 20th birthday has seen better days and has now lost a leg!

    Yes I am a dollmaker as well as a quilter. I’ve made porcelain as well as cloth dolls and have a couple of R John Wright’s Flower Fairies made of felt. This book looks very intriguing!

    Would absolutely love to improve my knowledge of colour and landscapes. No I don’t make dolls or ever played with them. Such a gorgeous book with gorgesous quilts. A

    I have not made any kind of doll since I crocheded my children nice tall rabblits for Easter when they were small. The preacher, a a good friend, swore I did it just to annoy him. He said that all he saw during his sermon war bouncing rabbit ears.

    I only made dolls with my dear Grandmother. We made old fashiond dolls and dressed them from the petticoats to their sunbonnets. Now I quilt a lot,love landscape quilts, hers looks quite different with the blocks. Would love to learn this process. Thank you for the opportunity to win this….

    I have made Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and also bears in the past but now devote my time to art quilts. I’ve seen Gloria’s quilts in person and love her work. I would enjoy this latest book.

    My heart sings when I quilt. Years ago I made cloth dolls and I was charmed when they developed a unique personality (and hence a name) as I was making the faces.

    I am not a doll maker, but I have made teddy bears and other soft animals for children. I usually give them with a quilt to the baby’s parents.

    This book looks amazing and I appreciate the chance to win!

    I made dolls for my children as they grew up, each unique to their little lives. Each doll is still around, too, even as my kids are now adults. Little treasures for my treasures!

    I am creating blankets for a children’s charity and make a doll
    to coordinate with the blanket. I have my dolls from the 50′s and
    still treasure them but the one I loved the most is a hand made
    calico doll. I always thought she had been thrown away but my
    Mother wrapped her up for my 40th birthday with a note, “Cuddler
    came back”. The best gift ever.

    When I was a child, my sweet little mother would make dolls FOR ME, and I thought they were the most special treasures in the world! Since then I’ve made a few, but I’m considering investigating them again to make for several of my nieces.

    I am not a doll-maker of ANY kind! But I would love to get this book(or the e-book since I am in Canada).. I really like the last quilt with the birch trees.
