“Patterns replicating tartan and madras are most effective. The couple’s writing style is practical, edged a bit with cutesy.” —Publishers Weekly

“Color is the main event—and the technique using color in Transparency Quilts is quite magical . . . if you are an adventurous beginner or above—these quilts will give you a new way of thinking about and using color that you might just love.” —Daisy and Jack (One Stitch at a Time)
