This quilt book not only offers many quilts to create but it is just fun to look at over and over. The photos are beautifully styled and opens up the imagination to decorate with the quilts. If you are an antique lover, you'll love the use of old items coupled with the new quilts, that take on an old flavor, themselves. I think there is something for everyone in this book, from the new quilter to the very experienced. Directions are clear and I like the graphic layout of the book. I appreciate the flat shots of the actual quilt so I can see the overall process. I want to make every single quilt in this book! Haven't seen a quilt book like that in a long time. This is a top notch, well put together quilt book. Visually and technically superior. Not many out there like this one!

This is a beautiful book with beautiful projects. I can't wait to get started. Quilts have a cozy country feel, but are elegant as well. The pictures are gorgeous and really give you a feel for the whole decor that these quilts belong in. I have many quilting books but this one is number one for inspiration and I am motivated to create every one of them. EXCELENT.
