SUMMARY- This was the first quilt book I bought after getting my mom's collection. I love the look of stained glass quilts, and have set up a page just for books on the subject if you also have an interest(look under "STAINED GLASS QUILTS" on the main bib page). All of these patterns are for wall hangings, and are fairly simple designs designed to get your feet wet with the technique. Her instructions are clear and well broken down enough to follow. I was very pleased to add this book to my mom's collection.
