SUMMARY- This is a fascinating book. It wasn't originally in my mother's collection, but attracted my attention in our used book shop. I'm so glad I decided to pick it up on a whim. I ended up spending a lot more time reading it and working out her diagrams. If you like playing with traditional designs but appreciate clever fabric play, you really should track down a copy of this book. It's a shame it was her only one.
