Review By: Denise Russell, - June 3, 2014
I find it indispensable in my library. If you also enjoy creating landscape quilts, you may want to have at least one of her books. I bought it for a class and was delighted with how my iris turned out, featuring batiks. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow.
