Comment 1:

Twenty spectacular projects—from small wall hangings to large blankets—reveal the amazing versatility of today’s quilting. Easy-to-assemble big blocks and appliqués create a powerful visual impact. Freeform designs require minimal measuring and marking. The materials feature irresistible prints, vintage-style charm, or cool details. Each quilt is fabulous!A Selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.
