Not what I thought Review by Laura

This e-book was entirely made up of articles from Quilting Arts Magazine. If the description had been more explicit about that, I would not have ordered this book. Since I have had a subscription to the magazine from the first issue, this entire e-book was a copy of articles I already had.

Absolutely loved it! Review by Robin

Susan answered a lot of my questions about thread, lines, and color. In fact, she answered questions, I couldn't even vocalize ... just knew that "something was wrong" or "how do I get it to look like what I want". Love it and can't wait to try the exercises to see for myself what happens.
