SUMMARY- Ms. Nevaril does a fantastic job of explaining her strategy and laying out examples of it in several different traditional blocks. I found the book interesting and informative. If you want the blocks tied together but also want the visual complexity of say a sampler quilt, I think this book would be a great read.
