SUMMARY- Judy Martin did something I didn't think possible - she made a "quick & easy" book engaging to me. It didn't hurt that the patterns she chose as simple actually have character and charm to spare, and the "quick and easy" part comes down to using modern techniques for cutting and piecing your top. If you are brand new to quilting(like I am), this is one of these books where it is a good place to start. You'll like the patterns, and her instructions are easy to read and follow.
