I had pre-ordered this book so I could have it as soon as it hit the stores. It is very well written and beautifully photographed. The way it she has organized the chapters is perfect. I really appreciated Joanne highlighting the similarities and differences in sewing and quilting with easy to follow patterns that cover both areas. I can not wait to start my projects! Usually with craft/art books, I browse through and read only the sections that catch my eye, with this book, I have read the whole thing! I highly recommend purchasing this book, it is a must have for anyone who loves fabric, sewing and/or quilting!
