It gives great basic instructions on overall quilt making, from design to completion. There is even a section on the criterion by which quilts are judged at shows. this was written before the invention of the rotary cutter. If you want good instructions on traditional pieced blocks and hand quilting, this is a good source. A well-loved favorite.
This is a great book for those who love quilting. The directions and pictures are easy to follow. A great read and help for quilters. I liked all the pictures and designs of quilts to make and instrutions on how to make quilts and quilted pieces like wall hangs or pillows. I have 2 of this book, that is why I am parting with it. Great gift.
