Someone gave me this book years ago and it has been sitting on my shelf every since. This is a hardback no a paperback. It is a good quilt book but I have so many that I really don't need this one. The quilts in here are lovely, some that can be put together quickly like the patterns Birds in the Air, Rail Fence, Brownies and Pink Lemonade. And there are quilts that will take more time and ones to applique, a beautiful Princess Feathers. If you like to quilt you will like this book. I just have many of these patterns in other books that I have.
