Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I just received my copy and am amazed at how much information it contains. This book is NOT going on the shelf with all my other quilting books. It will be kept handy so I can refer to it often. Sarah Ann Smith is very generous with her expertise, experience, and knowledge. This is going to become one of those "must have" books for quilters of all levels. -S. Atkins
