The book is divided into sections using three different quilt making techniques with basic instructions at the beginning of each section. There are 25 traditional-pieced block patterns, 25 foundation-pieced patterns, and 25 applique block patterns. There are six quilt layout examples using several popular ways to arrange blocks including horizontal, on-point, and in strips. She also gives an example layout using all the blocks in the book. The traditional-pieced blocks are given in three different sizes serif"If you are new to foundation piecing I found the instructions very clear and quite a few of the patterns are considered beginner patterns. I can’t wait to try out some of her applique patterns and use the decorative stitches on my machine.
