Are you a quilter AND a game players? Do you like Sudoku? Then this is a book where you can enjoy both at the same time! Ms. Hershey even goes so far as to explain what Sudoku is all about. The first pages, after explaining Sudoku, are about making the blocks and doing a block swaps with the game in mind. The author doesn't provide several pages of basic quilting techniques (don't we know most of them anyway?) but she does make a suggestion to another book in case you would need a refresher. Since the Sudoku quilt is a basic nine patch block, most of us know this simple design. The harder part is getting the puzzle side of the quilt right. Each project has a full color photo and states the finished quilt, small block and large block sizes. Then there is a blurb about the quilt before the materials and cutting lists are given. The graphics provided are also in full color which helps you to see the Sudoku part of the quilt more easily. Tips are provided in colored boxes throughout the book. Quilt as desired is stated but there are also a few suggestions on a couple of the patterns. As an avid gamer/quilter, I can't wait to try one!
