Wonderful Review by Angelacho

I found the articles and patterns in this issue delightful. There is something for everyone, from the small coasters to the full quilts. I enjoyed reading about the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild's Dresden challenge, and I found several projects I would like to make.

Just don't forget to download the pattern file as well! Everything you need is there.

Patterns Review by Nancy

The patterns are in a separate download on your invoice, I missed it too when I first downloaded the magazine. I love the the Chain of Circle room divider and want to make that as a wall hanging. As for the front cover quilt, I was planning to make the quilt with all vertical strips. I love the color combinations!

Nightmare Review by Libby

I never found the patterns! I assume the person who said they finally did was talking about the pages in the back that tell you how to sew the work together. However, the 2 patterns I wanted to sew quickly for gifts, eye glass case and change purse say to (see pattern insert). Apparently if you buy an ebook there is no pattern insert. S I bought flex frames and claw hooks for nothing. Maybe if you could get the magazine it's I thought I was buying in the first pace, it would be a nice magazine. Cause otherwise, looks nice, but no help to me.

Too much ads! Review by Brian

Unfortunately this magazine did not live up to the hype.
I had to scroll through too many pages before finally finding
the patterns. The patterns turned out to be very disappointing.
Patterns that could easily be found for free with Google search.
The quilt on the cover is practically a whole cloth quilt with just
The way it's presented is very deceiving.
