Review from Stick Your Nose in a Book: Quilting Book Reviews by Jennifer Zoeterman

If you've ever been in a block swap, you know it can be difficult to work with what you get. This is a great book for guilds, quilting groups, or internet swaps. Lynn helps you work through some of problems that can arise: blocks off-size, colors you may not usually work with, and choosing great blocks. In many cases she shows her finished quilt and the same design from another block-swap member.

This book is filled with 15 great scrap quilts. Yardage and instructions are given not only for trading blocks, but also for making the quilts on your own.
