Faerie Frolics

“Jillian's books are wonderful for adaptation to appliqué and fabric stained glass technique. The designs are suitable for fabric as the piecing dimensions for glass and fabric are very similar.” See Wild Rose appliqué

I am a professional stained glass artist at Rowe Studios in Miami. Today I purchased Butterfly. I have been an admirer of your designs since falling in love with your Faeries and Frog Song books. I love your designs because they do what I feel glass should do best - follow lines that are perfectly in balance with the demands of glass execution without sacrificing the symmetry of design. Your glass selection is imaginative and honest.
I encourage my students who have fallen in love with glass to purchase your books, attempt to build your designs and study your use of glass and color.
I guess this is a somewhat clumsy attempt to write a "fan letter", which I have never done before, but I felt the need to thank you for giving me so much pleasure with your books. There are too few times in this world when we are touched by the beauty of someone else's imagination and carry that smile away with us. Thanks again... can't wait to see what you conjure next!
