This is a project book, not a process book. A lot of the photos were so artistic, with large out of focus areas, that I couldn't get a good look at the quilts, so that's a drawback. Still, the use of asymmetry, white space, layers, and light in the projects gave me lots to think about. I was surprised in the instruction section that the batting and back were basted together before the top was added to the sandwich and basted; I don't think I've heard of that approach before.

One of my winter projects is to make this quilt, shown on the cover, for my new apartment. I have some of the pieces cut out but now must go off to a fabric store to search for more fabrics, not an easy quest in this day when so many good craft and fabric stores have gone under. For those of us who prefer simple, Scandinavian or Japanese style design, I highly recommend this books. The instructions are simple. Patterns are included.
