Lots of small pieces, appliqué and earth tones are what I think of when I see the author Edyta Sitar. This book is no exception.
The first chapter is a how-to of quilting techniques such as making an 8-pointed star and adding binding. Next you will find the patterns which are all various sized quilts except for one wall hanging and one sewing box. Each has a color photo of the finished project. I did notice that there is no finished project size given.
The materials list is set off in a colored box. Lots of graphics are provided but in a smaller size. Templates are provided at full size. The author’s bio is found after the Table of Contents.
If you like small pieces and earth tones, then this is a book you might like.
