This book is total eye candy for anyone who likes color and design. I haven't made any of the quilts so can't comment on the instructions, but Fassett's fabrics and incorporations are really creative and the quilts are always photographed in beautiful settings.

The quilt on the front, for instance, is actually large pieces of one of his designs, so not too hard to make.
