Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nadelstern (Kaleidoscopes & Quilts) is known for her seemingly complex and visually challenging quilts. Here she reveals that her quilts actually consist of easily constructed blocks and shares the clever tricks of fabric choice, cutting, and placing that make them seem more complicated than they are. A puzzle quilt is a sampler quilt in which each block is used twice but is pieced in such a way that the "puzzle" is to determine which are the two identically pieced squares. This is not a project book but rather a workbook for the quilter who wishes to take quilting from the bed to the art gallery wall. Recommended for large public libraries.
