    Still my favorite quilt book

    After only a few years as an avid quilter, I've collected quite a number of books. This one remains my favorite, and the quilts from this book are lovely. Color and tone experimentation are encouraged for exciting results.

    Love the variations

    I just LOVE the quilt designs in this book! I found most of the directions very clear and I'm a newbie quilter so that's important to me. The 9 patch variations are great and encourge you to play with color combinations
