SUMMARY- Mom had one or two quilt books for embroidered blocks, but embroidery wasn't really her thing - though she did do a set of exquisite peacocks on black satin that were used as decoration in our living room growing up. I think she decided that was enough of that, because to my knowledge she never embroidered again. If she wanted her tea towels to have a little something on them, she used tubes of fabric paint that were all the rage at the time. I happened to see this book available on www.paperbackswap.com and ordered it. I'm happy I did. You get 28 block patterns and a couple of different border designs. Her instructions are fairly straightforward. If you love the look of album quilts but don't want to invest in the full-size applique version, this might be your speed.
