The biggest problem with the book no where does it state the actual size of the template pieces. All 106 templates are one to a page and therefore, you need to waste paper and ink to print these out. Laurie and the publisher should get on board with today's quilter. With effort and patience you could locate these public domain blocks in BlockBase and print from there.
I would hesitate to purchase another one of Lauie's book without seeing it in person.
The CD is fine now thanks to suggestions from many people. It is not a program but just a file of the templates, one per page. Most of the blocks are very easy to redraft and that is what I am doing as I make the blocks. This is really a beautiful quilt and book. I do wish there was a file to print out ALL the templates on a few pages as this would save lots of paper. I also would have prefered the CD to include the full size diagrams of each block. That being said I would still highly recommend this book to any quilter.
The templates are all placed on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, when the template is 1 inch by 1 inch. You must print out the template in order to make the block, but when you do use the template, it doesn't matter. Because the blocks are different sizes, IF they even go together.
I will not purchase another book by this author, nor this publisher, no facts were checked when creating the templates and obviously no blocks were made, which makes me doubt the "facts" as presented otherwise, also.
The editor should have hired someone to at least check the measurements.
This book was a waste of money. It was a great concept with lack of follow-through.
