This technique takes a basic traditional block (such as maple leaf or Jacobs ladder) & updates it by: expanding into the borders, overlaying a larger version of the same using different color values, compressing & overlapping the patterns at new points.

This is obviously one of her earlier books. the patterns are for hand piecing. If you are a more experienced quilter, you can adapt the pattern designs to be done with rotary cutting. It is a neat book. it shows how to take a traditinal design and change it up to look much more modern. All you have to do is use today's fabrics and you can have a lot of neat quilts.
