If you like jelly roll quilts or working with scraps you will love this book. The author gives us some very clever ideas and patterns for using jelly rolls and offers suggestion for using scrap alternatives. With 18 quilts to choose from it's difficult to make a selection, however I have already identified my next two quilts. "Mocha Swirl" using tones of tans and brown fabrics with a very simple block assembly would be an excellent easy to do quilt. "Beach Cottage" with the clever subtle use of blues soft green and beige tones is an extremely appealing quilt, and would I am sure be fun to do in almost any colour tones. This book would be a great asset to any quilters bookshelf. It's a delight to read with good illustrations and diagrams and lots of hints and tips. It is a well written book with loads of ideas, a must for the fabric collectors and scrap enthusiasts.
