The first section gives instructions on making the basic block used in her Ribbon pattern. Then each project has a color photo of the finished quilt, along with a materials list and cutting chart. This cutting chart makes it so easy to follow which fabric, the number needed, the size to cut and what that piece will be used for. I wish more patterns were written with this type of chart.
Lots of diagrams are included in the instructions for making the blocks. The finishing of each quilt is left up to the maker's own tastes although a quilt pattern is provided if you wish to use it. A second color way is shown at the end of the project. You can read about the author at the end of the book.
With the basic block provided in this book, you can make dozens of wonderful star quilts from you own stash of fabrics. Let your imagination go wild.

I saw this advertised else where for a lot more money. Amazon always has best prices for most quilting books.Published on January 23, 2014 by C. Crain
Great patterns. Hard to choose just one. Can't wait to get started on another quilt and pick one from this collection.Published on October 14, 2013 by Ann White
