I liked the fun color and fabric combinations and the 50s aesthetic on the fabrics. The author also had a great section on color and pattern matching. There were a lot of different projects for the kitchen, kids, travel, home decor, and her sewing instructions were very detailed. However, as pretty as everything was, there weren't really any projects I felt a burning need to make myself.

Are you kidding me? All these patchwork books that are coming out now all have the same projects in them and the first or last chapter is entirely devoted to how to sew and give me a break! I give it one star because I like the fabrics the author used. I just hope the library isn't getting rid of the older, more substantial quilting books to make room for this kind of frippery.
