Magazine, March 2013 This book declares that it is 'just 15 minutes to perfection' and being somewhat skeptical of that statement, I found myself reading the book cover-to-cover and being inspired to put the statement to the test. It really doesn't take long at all to learn Jeanne's method, either by hand or machine. What you see is what you get and by working with all your fabrics and templates right side uppermost makes fabric choices so much easier. There are clear instructions for easier and faster techniques for ruching, circles, narrow lines, lettering, Broderie Perse, reverse applique and many others. This book is well worth a look and is most certainly informative. Fabrications Quilting For You, February/March 2013 Issue
