"A pleasing old-fashioned effect, and the pages are single-sided and perforated along the binding for easy removal, allowing for finished 'quilts' to be assembled if desired. This book could easily lend inspiration to aspiring quilters or provide a pleasant diversion for accomplished ones who'd like to return to another favorite pastime." --The Deseret News
