For those of us that enjoy Amish quilts or quilts with black in them, this is very good. Numerous ideas and patterns are given with clear instructions. Amish style has emphasis on the actual quilting (finishing stitch designs) rather than the pattern. Great for baby or lap quilts. Make a small one before committing to a full size. Winter is on it's way. Do yourself a favor and make a quilt!
