The photo's of the quilts are GREAT! I began with making the cover quilt "Colonial Cocks Comb" The quanity of fabric needed for the project was incorrect. Too much for one color not enough for another. The block measurements were too small for the template shape offered. At best this block should have been cut at 18½" sq. Although, the quilt instructions appear clear and consise if they are not accurate they become a waste of time. If you want a nice "picture" book buy this one if you want to make a project in it DO Not or be prepared to redesign them for accuracy.
Beautiful quilt patterns - great pictures. The instructions are well written and clear. The patterns for the applique are done well and easy to copy or scan into embroidery software.
