A good instructional book to have in your quilting book library. Robin Strobel has a way of laying things out for those of us who need a little extra help along with good pictures and diagrams. There are just six quilts here, but any of them can be made to look different with the use of varied and sundry pieces from our fabric stash. Each pattern includes instructions for four sizes.
My favorite is the Basic Tipsy Nine Patch. Since so many of my quilts look "tipsy" anyhow, or at least they look like they were made while I was "tipsy," I can totally appreciate the value of a planned Tipsy Quilt. Look for it on page 22. It's easy and fun to make, just as the rest are.
