...I think many quilters are looking for this type of approach to quilting, and Ms. Einmo is "a right person at the right time" to help the process along. If I were a brand new quilter (I'm probably "intermediate"), I would not be intimidated by the book. I'd be encouraged to try some of the quilts, feeling that, as the author says in her introduction, that I had a friend who knew what she was doing right by my side as I worked...-Patricia Deck

Check out the jelly roll on the cover…Its our Birdie! I admit that it’s what drew me to the book, but after I looked inside I had to have it. Not only does the book have a beautiful “Birdie” jelly roll on the cover, but it also has some great quilts that I hope to make someday. I think that my favorite is “Honey Bun Cabins”.
I love the fun tips that she (Einmo) gives throughout the book, especially the one about fusible web not storing well. So don’t stock up when it is on sale. I did not know that!!!
It’s by Kimberly Einmo and gets two thumbs up! Good Job!
