Like all good quilting books, this one starts out with a section on choosing fabric and how to personalize your quilt. Tools needed and quilting basics are the next sections and cover such things as rulers, matching seams and chain piecing. In the Finishing Techniques section, there is a very good idea on how to make a light table with things you already have in your home just in case you don't own one. A baker's dozen of quilt patterns are written in language that is easy to understand and has plenty of graphics of the steps so you can see if you are reading the written words correctly. There is a list of the materials needed and how to cut the fabric. There is also a photo of the finished quilt with the finished quilt size and finished block size being listed. A small paragraph about the quilt is also given. Making the blocks, assembling the quilt and finishing suggestions complete the patterns instructions. Ms. Martin has chosen fun fabrics for the shown quilts such as blocks with alphabet letters or piggies playing. There are also quilts with retro fabric and even ones that use up all those left over bits and pieces. The last page has a photo of the author along with two paragraphs about her.
