SUMMARY- This is a wonderful collection of designs to use to quilt your layers together. It doesn't have mom's address sticker in it, so I'm guessing it was originally my grandmother's, who had a quilting machine set up in her repurposed garage that about ran the length of it. You could roll up your King-sized quilt on the rollers and walk up and down the length of the quilt with the head of the sewing machine able to move with a touch. It was a pretty cool set-up. Anyway, grandma likely collected the quilting books in order to have a variety of patterns to use to quilt mom's tops. This is a great treasury of patterns.
