This book includes an odd mix of quilts, some I would NEVER make, some that I would love to copy ASAP. I bought it ages ago, but recently pulled it out again, and was so inspired that I ran out and bought a ton of fabric - now we'll see if I actually make anything!

Lots of new ideas/techniques for quilts that could be made your own (easily adaptable). Some look simple and others very fancy. I liked that the ideas weren't "country" or traditional.

There's a lot of inspiration for me in the quilts here, and the styles are pretty wide in range. I don't like every color or fabric combination in the samples, but I like the patterns (especially the bird applique) and ideas (ribbon quilt, french knots) an awful lot.

This book wasn't what I thought it would be. Although a few of the quilts were pretty, most I didn't like very much. I was looking for inspiration more than instruction. I didn't find it here.
