Book Reviews

Books play a very important role in every quilter's life. A lot of techniques can be learnt entirely from books which is very convenient if classes are not easily available or cannot be integrated in a busy schedule. Books can also be a source of inspiration, no matter whether they show contemporary or antique quilts.
We from Quilt around the World will always keep our eyes open for new (and sometimes not so new) books and will review them as objectively as possible. We would like to invite all of you to comment both on the book and our review to make the information even more valuable to those who are still thinking about the purchase.
