Review By: Dori Hawks

Because beauty is timeless, both traditional and contemporary quilters appreciate antique quilts as a source of inspiration for their work. The nine full-sized quilts in this book scan more than a century and were selected from hundreds of antique quilts because of their striking designs. Whether made from reproduction or today’s fabrics, they’re sure to maintain a classic look.

All of the quilts are pieced with one has simple curved piecing. Included is a Live Oak Tree design that is pieced with diamonds like a Lone Star design. A striking Log Cabin and a Little Red Schoolhouse pattern are part of this interesting book.

The Circle Design would make a stunning quilt done in bright colors and maybe batik fabrics. The choices would be endless.

The instructions are complete and the illustrations clear, and the quilt designs are exciting.
