My only problem with this book, and the reason I gave it three stars, is due to the fact that the writers/quilters cut the fabric requirements soooo close that a simple miswhack could result in not having enough fabric to finish your quilt. I have been qulting for 20 years and I had to piece a 4 1/2 inch square, I ran so close. The frugal quilter should have not problems, but the novice or creative quilter should buy a little more of each fabric that is called for just to be sure to have enough,, especially if you are using fabric that does not measure full 45 inch width.
The quilts are beautiful and definitely worth making. They inspired me to think beyond colors I normally use. The book is definitely one I will keep and use again and again.
Blooming 9 patch color selection has always scared me. But reading about it in Traditions with a Twist gives me the confidence to do it.
My favorite quilting book... and I have a LOT of them.
