This was the first Thimbleberries book I have ever bought and I was most impressed by the fabulous quilt patterns (and have ordered other Thimbleberries books as a result). The completed quilts are beautifully photographed (in two different colour schemes for some quilts).The instructions are very clear (using yards and inches) and colour diagrams are used to show you how to assemble each block. Projects are labelled "Make it tonight" or "Make it in a weekend" or left unlabelled for longer projects, to indicate how long a project may take. The projects range from traditional quilt patterns such as stars and checkerboard to more whimsical patterns such as houses, trees and watermelons. There is certainly something for everyone in this book (something that is hard to say about most quilting books). I have earmarked 7 that I would be willing to make straight away!. Treat yourself, this one is worth it.
