SUMMARY- There are some really cute ideas in this book - I was particularly drawn to "Grandpa's Ties", which is quirky and charming and when people realize what they're looking at, will automatically get a surprised laugh and leave them smiling. I don't think you can get better than that. Each quilt comes with a mini lesson to make upping your game painless. I really liked this book.
