- Awesome for Inspiriation — Review by Paula
If you are looking for inspiration, the "New Quilts from Old Favorites" series will fill the bill. If you are looking for actual patterns to make the quilts featured... well keep looking. There are some patterns but nothing overly exciting!
I love the book for all the fresh bright ideas and the quilter's journey with making/designing their quilts. (Posted on 8/16/11)
