    A book that helps with curves

    Curves – UGH! That is my usual feeling when I encounter a quilt that has them. This book shows you how to cope with them. It also combines a stack and whack procedure.

    There are 19 patterns to choose from. There is one pattern that has no curves, two that have only a couple of curves and one that has circles. All the rest have curves that are gentler.

    The patterns contain the usual finished quilt and block sizes, with the materials and cutting lists. There is a box that contains fabric tips for each set of instructions. Graphics are provided to help make sure you are on target. No quilting suggestions are provided.

    The last page has a bio about the author and her web site information. If you want to learn to handle curves, this would be a good book to have in your library.
