Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The beginning of this book covers 13 pages and includes such things as color, pattern and scale and whether to use your stash or purchase a collection. The last pages of the book cover quilting basics and a bit about the author. There are 15 patterns and they start out with a color photo of the project. Then they give a paragraph about the item, followed by who made and quilted it. The finished block and project size are also given. The actual written instructions begin with a colored box called THE FABRICS and they are followed by the material and cutting lists. How the item is sewn together comes next and a graphic or two is among the written words to help you along. When it comes to finishing the item, there are no specific design suggestions; it is left up to your own creativity. With all the pre-cuts we have today, if you don’t have fabric in your stash that you wish to use, purchasing pre-cuts will speed up the time you spend on making the item.
