Excellent book for those interested in "New York Beauty" type blocks. The cd includes exact-sized, paper piecing patterns for 6-8 quilts. (Normally paper piecing patterns for one quilt equal the price of this book.) The cd is EXTREMELY easy to use, just click on the picture of the quilt or block and you're done. They print out beautifully on your printer and off to the sewing machine you go. The book provides all the necessary info for fabric yardage, cutting and assembly...Suzy Homemaker
About the Author
Deb dabbled in quilting when her children were born BRC (Before Rotary Cutters). But then she put down her scissors and cardboard templates and took up the task of raising her children and launching a career in the interior design industry. Her youngest daughter's announcement in 2000 that she was pregnant with triplets was all the incentive Deb needed to try quilting once again.
Janet was born and raised in the Bronx, New York, and learned all types of needlework from her mother. She dabbled in paints and pencils as well, but her college education included few art courses. She and her husband, Avram, and educator and writer, relocated to San Francisco in the early '80s, where they raised their son Matthew and where Janet has been employed in the music merchandising business for twenty years.
