The projects are broken down by the type of pre-cut fabric used for the projects. I love pre-cut fabrics but making my own from yardage is also presented as an option. Four projects use mini-charm and charm packs, four projects use layer cake squares, two use fat-eighths, and four use fat quarters. If this is Greek to you, have no fear, Ms. Robinson explains these cuts.
In addition to explaining pre-cuts, the beginning of the book contains Quilt-making Basics, Robinson shows her methods for making: flying geese units, quick-angled rectangles, square-in-a-square units, pieced sashing, and wool applique. She also details how she frames quilts. Other basic techniques are adding borders, layering and quilting, binding, and covered cording.
The photos are beautiful. It's a bonus to me that Ms. Robinson's fabric choices appeal to my aesthetic. I'm especially fond of the reds shown on the cover quilts. I've learned that my eye appreciates high-contrast fabric usage and these designs are perfect for that. I highly recommend this book and hope this review helps you in some way determine if it is for you.
