I have not too patiently awaited the release of this book and I was not disappointed! Tula's witty writing, fun patterns, gorgeous fabric eye-candy, not to mention Angela Walters' absolutely stunning quilting, make this book a must-have! Tula even explains and shows examples of her fabric design process. This will be a go-to book for inspiration!

This book is gorgeous, and I'm glad to have it, even if I doubt I'll make many of the projects. I love that she shows some of her design process, I would have loved to see more of that. One of the few quilting books where I actually read the front "how-to" sections instead of skipping straight to the patterns. The writing is fun and the pictures are beautiful, and I'll be flipping through it frequently.

The book was not exactly as I had expected or hoped. I prefer to see more patterns and not as much time spent on the specifics of "how to" and designer choices. I want to be able to make quilts, not just read on the subject.

This was a fun read as well as quilt book! Tula explains the process of creating, gives helpful tutorials for quick assembly, and generally has fun telling you about the projects! Photos are beautiful and I liked that the book gave proper measurements for purchasing fabric.
