As in all things, there are pros and cons to each. The e-book allows me to easily select pages and print what I want --- meaning that I no longer have to "fight" with either trying to hold a book open or having a broken binding. Of course, the con side is almost the same thing. You don't have a book that has a broken binding which shows just how much you "love" the book because it has been well used.
The book itself contains 10 pages of general quilting instructions and shows various things such as how to applique, suggestions on cutting, piecing, pressing and quilt finishing. There are 21 projects; many are adaptable so you can make ornaments, package decorations or garlands besides the quilt or wall hanging that is the actual pattern.
The projects have a photo of the finished item, the size and a small blurb about the project. Finished block size and a photo of the actual block itself comes next. Then the material and cutting lists show what you need and how it should be cut. Block sewing instructions are next with graphics to help you see what your block should look like during the assembly steps.
There are no suggestions for how to quilt your items but there are Cat Chat and Dog Talk boxes that contain tips or hints such as a special hand embroidery design for a mouse tail. Templates are included and do not need to be enlarged. A very short bio winds up this book.
This would be a good "early Christmas" gift for the quilter in your life. After all, that quilter has to have time to create the items in order for you to get one of them for Christmas!
