This book has my attention in several ways. First, it is spiral bound. You will not have to ¿fight¿ to keep the book open to the page you are working with. Why all quilt books are not bound this way is beyond my understanding.

The second thing that caught my attention is in the type of quilts in the book. Usually when the services are mentioned, you know, Army, Navy Air Force and Marines, it stops there. Usually the Coast Guard is never mentioned. BUT this book has included a quilt for the Coast Guard as well as the normal four services.

The final thing that held my attention is the patterns are on a separate perforated section in the back of the book. No need to enlarge, they are full sized.

The patterns are unique. I have never seen a quilt made by weaving an appliqué through another pattern piece. This gives the quilts the look of seeing through the flag. The instructions for the patterns contain the size and a color photo of the finished item, along with cutting and yardage requirements. Lots and lots of graphics are combined with detailed, easy to follow instructions. The weaving instructions are understandable and the border instructions are located at the end of the book for each item.

A 3-page spread contains all the information you need to create a label for this one-of-a-kind quilt. It is something that you will definitely want to add to a quilt that you put this much time and effort into so future generations will know the history of the item.
