Great recipe...they make my mouth water! I love coconut and quilting!

Nancy Lock

Got to make lots of them ! Some for me .. more for me .. and a little for every one else. lol

Jenny Moore

I love to hear about your family traditions. Can hardly wait to try your recipe for Icelandic Coconut Balls. Hope I am lucky


The block is absolutely gorgeous and you are right, the fabrics in the right position just make the whole thing pop. In my very humble opinion, this isn't a block -- it's a quilt! I look at it and try to visualise more than one and it's difficult -- so complete by itself.


maureen livingston

The thing that stands out most about my Childhood Christmas' is my parents would wake us up after "Santa" came so they could see our excitement and then they were able to sleep in the morning. I definately am going to make those yummy cookies and would Love the book. If I don't win it, I will buy it
