"I love this book! As a quilt shop owner many of my customers have unfinished quilts and are looking for alternative projects. Pam's clear and concise instructions combined with the step-by-step photography make this book a must read on any quilters list. Her Basic Instructions chapter will be my new bible whenever I'm looking for ideas for finishing techniques. Her creativity and knowledge of sewing inspire me to get out my bins of "UFOs" and get sewing!" - Marie Miller owner of Maw & Paw's Quilt Shop Altona NY
