Really kind of spectacular work shown in this book--quilts inspired by or which have inspired the novels in this series. Again, this is not the kind of quilting I do, but I do love to see what people have accomplished, and I love to steal ideas and techniques. What I really wanted was to see the Lilac-and-Elm-Leaves quilt mentioned in Book #5, The Quilter's Legacy, and the bridal quilt mentioned in Book #6, The Master Quilter. Both are shown in detail, and they are impressive. Great fun.

I know the lady who made the quilt on the cover of this book. She's the applique teacher who got my friends and I started and we liked the classes so much we decided to continue meeting on Monday nights after they were over. She brought the unfinished quilt to Doris's one week when she was under the gun, and we all helped her do some of the applique work on the pink & lavender ribbon middle border.

This book makes me wish I was better at applique.

I might come back to this book someday when I want a quilt pattern. I was mostly just interested in the quilts from Chiaverini's books and this satisfied that curiousity.
