    Good Book

    I liked this book. It has some vintage patterns, and others that are done in 30's repro fabrics. Shows that you can take any pattern, use 30's repro fabrics, and make a pretty quilt!

    Not 1930's Quilts at All

    I had purchased this book, assuming I would find authentic 1930's quilt patterns, using repro fabrics. Instead, each contributor made a quilt of any-old style, using repro fabrics. No authenticity of 1930's quilt styles whatsoever. I returned my book.
