This delightful book is a unique keeper. It is a visual treat of reproduction fabric projects. The spiral bound design makes it special and so easy to read as the pages lie flat. The cardboard templates easily punch out and don't need to be cut. My first project will be the 1930's style Etta's apron which also includes a paper pattern. A nice touch is the appropriate quilting design or a chicken or rooster located at the page number.

Great book. I love the family stories and pictures throughout the book. Instructions are simple to follow and explained will. I especially like the variations of quilts possible with just a rearrangement of the blocks. This one is a keeper!

I had been wanting to make a Dresden Plate quilt for years, but was too intimidated to start this quilt. Eleanor Burns made the Dresden Plate block easy and doable, I am almost finished with my quilt!

I'M ALWAYS INTERESTED IN QUILT PATTERNS BY ELINOR BURNS. HER PATTERNS ARE SO EASY TO FOLLOW, YARDAGE REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL SIZES OF QUILTS ARE THERE, HER METHODS TO CUT AND ASSEMBLE THE QUILT ARE EASY TO FOLLOW --- AND, MOST IMPORTANT, AS A BEGINNING QUILTER, I WAS ABLE TO FINISH MY FIRST BED QUILT FOLLOWING HER DIRECTIONS. I'M HOOKED.

I was extremely disappointed with this publication! I own multiple copies of Eleanor Burn's DVDs and matching books. I am probably one of her biggest fans. This book requires that you purchase a book from QuiltSmart which costs another $20 and a plastic template to get the specific measures to cut the fabric pieces, etc. For the price of the book, I felt that at least all of the instructions should have been within the book I was purchasing or the book should have been a lot less expensive brand new.

I love this book! The instructions are fun and easy and the results are just as advertized! I highly recommend this book if you are thinking about making a dresden plate quilt. Use of 1930's reproduction fabric is, of course, optional.

A very nice comprehensive book for beginning/intermediate quilters who are interested in the 30's era patterns. It's just fun to read, and the quilt patterns offer the maker options to personalize. Definately recommend this book.

When I first saw trhis book I thought many of these blocks were too difficult for me, especially with my little blue plastic sewing machine. But I worked through them, leaving the tricky-looking ones till last, and now I KNOW I can make almost any block I want to. I found the instructions very clear, and the shortcuts very helpful. And I didn't waste as much fabric as I expected, even with all the trimming (my 1/4" seam is not anywhere near that small!) Working with smaller cuts and scraps won't work so well though - this book assumes you have at least 9" widths of fabric. Buy the book before the fabric. And don't be surprised when the pages tear on the spiral binding.
