5.0 out of 5 stars What a fab book! 31 Aug 2010
By Suzy
Bought this book after being lent a copy by a friend. Fell in love with the contents so much had to have one myself. There are a lot of expensive quilting books around this was a great price, perfect condition and sent very quickly. The contents are wonderful great pictures but above all simple plain speaking instructions. So pleased i bought it and even more pleased I got it much cheeper.
Thanks Amazon for running a great service.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great book 17 Nov 2010
Having just started to do patchwork I was told that this was the book to have - and it is!! It is clear, informative and easy to follow - also very inspiring - I was amazed that I could produce my first patch so quickly - the book arrived at lunchtime and I had finished a patch by mid-afternoon.
Lots of pictures, lots of inspiration and very good instructions.
