KIRKUS REVIEW

Better to bee by machine than not to bee at all is a notion that won't please the purists of this again highly-prized craft, but Lithgow is practical and realistic, as well as technically helpful, as she takes the mystique out of the maneuvers. If quiltmaking isn't exactly as ""easy"" as she makes out (just the sheer numbers of those hits of fabric to piece and lay on demands infinite patience and attention), her breeziness should reassure even those who don't know the difference between a trapunto and a puff. A how-to which is as good as it ought to be -- but if all else fails, Lithgow supplies the addresses of Mennonite groups who will quilt to order.
