SUMMARY- I really loved her first book, so when I got a chance to snag this one for a price within my budget, I leaped for it. I'm so glad I did! I have a powerful fondness for fairy tales(yes, I collect books on fairy tales, too), and we all grew up with Hans Christian Andersen's stories being told to us. As with her first book, the projects are clear on their subject matter(you can definitely tell what story each project is from), you get a beautiful photo of each project, and a diagram(but no written instructions). You also get an excerpt of the fairy tale the pattern was designed for. I can imagine an heirloom baby quilt with these twelve blocks checkerboarded across it's top!
