Recommends it for: Any quilter, but esp. those who feel connected to WWII

I borrowed a copy of this from mom, and within a week I made a 50" x 50" wall hanging! I loved it! Probably some of my enthusiasm comes from the fact that I'm also somewhat of a history buff, so I love making quilts that have some connection to history. (We'll be raffeling off the wall-hanging to raise money for a student trip to Europe to study WWII sometime this school year.)

I'd say it's a great book for an intermediate-level quilter (like myself). The instructions are fantastic - clear illust

Great for someone into 1940's reproduction-type stuff.
