Five patterns using 2 1/2" wide width of fabric strips are included in the book. Grasshopper Smoothie is the simplest pattern, suitable for beginners. The quilts progress in level of difficulty up to an intermediate level quilter. All patterns include clear graphics showing, step by step, how to create each unit, each block and each quilt top. Each quilt has been pattern tested by featured artists to eliminate pattern errors. One quilter even included a recipe for Grasshopper Smoothies to go along with the beautiful, yet simple quilt of the same name.
