Book of the Week 

This weeks Book Of The Week is 'Quilts for all Seasons' by Betsy Chutchian. 

An enthusiast of traditional quilts, which she affectionately reinterprets, Betsy Chutchian offers us twenty of her latest creations in this book. A star designer for Moda Fabrics, her prints have the vintage charm of the reproduction fabrics that she loves to work with. A pleasant companion of a book to always keep at hand.

ERRATUM: There is a minor error in the English version for the quilt “Bittersweet” found on page 101. In the “Assembly” section, it should read the following:

“Place two identical 1 5/8” (4.5 cm) cream squares onto opposite corners of 2 ¾” (7.5 cm) red or brown/black square right sides together.”
