SUMMARY- The blocks weren't included in the Table of Contents, but I thought quilters would want to know what blocks were included, so I added this information. I particularly liked her "Rocking Horse". This book is aimed at people who want to quilt their own quilts but only have a regular sewing machine and don't want to do it all by hand. I don't think my mom ever tried this - she has way too many unquilted tops left to finish.
