Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Do you love blue and white? Do you love quilting? Do you love rug hooking? If so, this book covers all those loves. The book is divided into three sections: Americana, Coastal and Classic. Each section has quilts and rugs that lean towards that theme. Unfortunately, the book itself doesn’t have any patterns. At the end of the book is a list of where the patterns could be found but the links are not live in the .pdf I have. There was also two URLs listed as to where they might be found but again, the URLs were not live. The blog URL was just that, a blog. I found no patterns. The other one was a store and, of course, you could buy the patterns. This book has lovely items but alas, no patterns. It is more of a “how to decorate” than a pattern book Not my kind of book at all.
