Why is everyone so excited about this book? The answer is easy— there's something new, useful, fun, and inspiring on every single page. For instance, find out:

* Why you should bring a kaleidoscope or pair of binoculars to the fabric store to help choose colors

* The quick trick for shortening your rotary cutting time (hint: it's all in how you fold the fabric)

* How skateboarders' grid tape and plain old duct tape can make rotary cutting easier than ever

* An ingenious way to transform pages from a magnetic photo album into reusable appliqué templates

* How changing to a different size needle can instantly improve your hand appliqué

* The timesaving way to baste together a quilt sandwich

* The best way to erase penciled quilting marks (surprise— it's a cotton T-shirt!)

Page after page is filled with hundreds of other tips like these from expert quiltmakers— all too good to miss. You'll probably find yourself saying over and over again, "I can't wait to try that!"
