Reviewing this book has me in awe of the skillfully beautiful offering of projects. I am looking at each item with the eye of an advanced quilter, appliquer, and embroiderer losing myself to the exquisite design, dazzling artwork, and meticulously executed projects. There are so many of them and they are all sensational! All the close up shots demonstrate how adept the author is at building these bags, pouches, and quilts. The saying, "it’s all in the details," is so accurately true here.

There are projects for all levels, so a person can reasonably use this book for many years as their skill level increases. You receive with the book a section dedicated to techniques, project instructions, and pattern templates. Many of the notions and accessories can be found locally or purchased online. Anyone who delights in building beautiful things will relish the opportunity of making one of these projects.
