Fun easy projects with a modern flair. Great technique descriptions and sewing tips. My favorite projects: her king size quilt and a darling "traffic jam" quilt for a boy.

I've never made a quilt, but if I do, I will use one of the patterns in this book. I love modern quilt designs. There are also non-blanket projects in this book.

Would make the essentials bag but the drawings look confusing, maybe if I could find an online review.
