One of the BEST !!! Jul 1, 2007
I cannot tell you how much I love this book. I have read it twice from cover to cover. Not only does it have great projects but it has great history, photos and so much information about cotton and other things that quilters will love. I cannot recommend it high enough. Thank You Jodie!!!!!! I have about 200 quilting books and I must put this one at the top of my list of "must haves". Jackie Meyer
