I seem to gravitate to Kim's books. The first thing I see is the book cover full of beautiful deep colors, then after opening it you're overtaken by appliqué, piecing, cotton, wool, colors and shapes! It's like all my favorite things together in one place. What could be better than that?
This is the first thing on my Christmas list. Thank you, Toni Anne ;->
