Beautiful and inspiring. The best book I have seen on English paper piecing. I was intimidated by older works on this method of patchwork. It never occurred to me that I could just cut fabric into squares for piecing hexagons. Now I am getting started on my own bright and beautiful quilt using the approach from this book.

She does a great job walking through the steps of designing and sewing a quilting project. Even if you don't use this hand stitching method, it's worth checking out for the rest of the info--will be buying this one.
