KIRKUS REVIEW

 The Patchwork Lady wears ``a plaid dress, argyle stockings, and checkered slippers''; in her house--from her toothpaste to the afghan she's knitting--multicolored designs prevail. With company coming, she bakes a crumbling cake, stuck together with honey. Dyer's sweet, carefully detailed style is just right for this concept-book-cum-story: creatively juxtaposing dozens of patterns, both intentional (e.g., chintz) and otherwise (a tricolored cat), she celebrates the subject's possibilities and sums it up in the guests' perfect birthday present--a patchwork quilt. (Picture book. 4-8)
