All through the workshops there are helpful hints on choosing colors and patterns that will work together, and variations on the basic blocks show how those choices will affect the end result. With step-by-step text, accompanied by clear illustrations, you'll soon be making a table runner and pillow covers, before moving on to wall hangings, a cot quilt, and a throw.
