Would have given it 5 stars but

The Jitterbug quilt appears twice. Wants, in the early part of the directions it morphs into some other quilt, and then appears again as the next quilt which following the directions you then get an actual jitterbug. Anybody else have this snafu?

This is almost a pure project book and I wouldn't even have picked it up if Frances and Sandy hadn't talked about it over and over. Frances has definitely picked my favorites out of the quilts in this book.

I think all patterns/ book should have sizes for their units.

I probably won't do any projects directly from this (still only interested in English paper piecing) but I'm trying to learn the basics of building a quilt.
