SUMMARY- This is the second book of Ms Noble that I've acquired. I liked the first one very much, so couldn't turn this one down when I saw it. I'm very happy to add it to my mom's quilting library, though some of the techniques I'd be most interested in trying can't be done on my current sewing machine. I may break out my grandmother's Pfaff though, and see if it has the right feet...
