Review: Just for your knowledge, I will list the chapters
And, of course, the usual acknowledgments and index at the end.
I find it to be a very good allround general info book.

I don't normally buy the quilt book offers that come in the junk mail, but for some reason I did buy a book called "In Love with Quilts" by Oxmoor House, and am pleasantly surprised by it. It is a hardcover book of 160 pages. It has BEAUTIFUL colorful pictures of 16 quilts plus other things like pillows, runners, and (yawn) an apron.
Here is a list of the quilts they show:

I have this same book, and I feel the same way about it that you do...Some of my best inspirations for color *and* pattern have come from that book. :) When I showed that book to my mom, she "swiped" it for a while, so I had to buy her one of her own.
My father's Christmas gift this year is the Mariner's Compass in that book...in the same colors as they show. (I'm only making 6 whole blocks, none of the half/quarter block stuff!) It's definitely going to take the gift of patience, but the look on his face will be well worth the wait! And I'm starting NOW! :)
I recommend this book highly to anyone. :)

I am also in love with the Oxmoor quilt book series, having at this point received 2 books and expecting a third any day now. I am so jealous of people who can make a Mariner's Compass and have it come out all right--the colors of the one in the "Love of Quilts" book are absolutely gorgeous!! Maybe some day.

It's all kinds of cats--pieced, appliqued, cats based on fan blocks, crazy cats, even a "sunbonnet sue" cat. Lots of cute little wallquilts There's one DALMATION quilt in the book --called "firehouse dogs" and it has little fire hydrants in each corner. This is really the best book I've seen for cat (and one doggie) quilts.

This is a great book. In my opinion it is a must have for any
It is well written with clear concise instructions, and beautifully illustrated. There are instructions for at least 40 quilting projects. The chapters are broken down into the pattern, making it easy to find the type of project you want to do. There is even a chapter on my favorite - Sampler Quilts.
Jean Wells has done a wonderful job with this book and I recommend it to everyone.
