This is the first quilting book I ever owned. I purchased it to take a beginning quilting class at Quilt in a Day. It is written, as I have learned are all of her books, to help you finish one quilt. Using the technique in the book, in this case the log cabin block, you are provided with a variety of different layouts which enable you to make several unique quilts with the same block. It also provides fabric and cutting info for different size finished quilts. For the most part it is easy to read and follow. Just be sure that you mark the size you are using so you don't miscut or purchase too little fabric.
