12/5/2003: It's now over a year later and I am still making quilts from this book (along with others). Just completed one that I'm very happy with...it looks almost nothing like the example in the book that prompted the idea. My least favorite part of quilting is cutting out the pieces, and this book's techniques take a lot of the tedium out of that, leaving more time to play around with the design. I have other more beautiful books but have made more quilts out of this one than any other.
Most of the patterns have a very "traditional" or classic look - if you're into more modern design this would not be the right book for you.
My complaint is minor and simple - in many cases, the squares immediately get chopped into 2.5 inch strips. The quilts could just as easily be made from jelly rolls, only the instructions don't cover this. Example, the materials list may be for x pairs of 5 inch squares - when 2 jelly roll strips would work.
Super minor as complaints go - especially since the title of the book is Nickel Quilts (as in quilts from 5 in squares). I guess I am just greedy. LOL
