Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Briscoe (Japanese Quilt Blocks To Mix and Match) covers every aspect of quilting in bite-size pieces that aren't always detailed or specific but will answer most basic questions adequately. Chock-full of information, photographs, and small projects-bordering on overload-this is nicely organized but potentially overwhelming. Quilters who aren't tied to a narrative presentation (and are willing to look around for information) will enjoy the useful tips.
