My Review: Books like this one are usually the type that I really don't read. I just collect to view the photos. There are some really nice quilts pictured in this book. It is a big book. As of this review I have only looked at the photos. I'm sure I would enjoy reading about the history and making of the quilts if I ever take the time to read this book.
