User Review  - rccat - LibraryThing

Excellent colour illustrations are the highlight of this book. Less information on colour is provided than in her earlier work "The magical effects of color". However, this book is clearly written and the increased number of illustrations make it perhaps more useful to the average quilter. Read full review
