Book Review

From Booklist: “An amazing amount of meticulous research elevates this compendium from a ho-hum aggregate to one that inspires and engages. . . . [Jinny] Beyer enhances her encyclopedic reference by featuring mini catalogs of like-minded design styles, like bow ties, airplanes, the Red Cross, and kaleidoscope blocks. She also details her sources with commentary and explains how she categorized the blocks. Worthy of any quilting (and quilter’s) library.” –Barbara Jacobs
