    Ever wonder what to do with fabrics with big beautiful print? This book will help with seven different ideas.

    The first 15 pages have valuable information on pictorial fabric, companion blocks and how to make a snowball block. Each project shows the quilt in color with the finished block and size of the quilt. A paragraph describes more about the quilt and the pattern used.

    Material and cuttings lists are easy to read. Tips are set off in a framed box. Graphics are generously provided so you can see if you are doing it right. An exploded view of the finished quilt show how to sew the rows/sashing together. No quilting suggestions are given.

    A gallery of 15 different quilts shows off different big print fabric. Then there is a wonderful section of block ideas. There are 13 different blocks. The last pages are finishing technique to help you choose batting and backing, etc. The very last page is the author’s bio.
