Detailed step-by-step instructions, a variety of patterns and fabrics, and short quilting history lessons scattered throughout. I would have liked to see some larger quilts - maybe one or two scaled up to at least a lap size. Another annoyance is that many of the quilts require special triangle cutting tools. I'd say that this one is more for grannies than the younger quilting generation.
This book is good for people that like traditional patterns and fabric. I am not one of those people. I might have liked some of the quilts if the fabrics weren't so dated, but I couldn't get past the fabrics and I also felt the patterns were very old and traditional. This book is not for a younger, more creative audience.
