This book takes quilting-as-you-go to a whole new level. It simplifies putting your quilt together and yet allows you to make two completely different quilts. You can have one theme on one side and a totally unrelated theme on the other. Imagine changing the atmosphere of the room by simply turning your quilt over. And you only made one quilt. We made the instructions clear and precise so that everyone, including the most inexperienced sewer, would be able to follow and enjoy making their very first project (a lap quilt) with inventory lists included for larger quilts. For you more-experienced quilters, there is a section that goes straight into "Just the Connectors" and bypasses the planning stages and preparing of your blocks that you would already be very familiar with. We hope you enjoy making your quilts using the DH method as much as we have enjoyed putting the book together for you.
