About the Author:

Linda K. Johnson and Jane K. Wells are the Crafty Ol' Broads, sisters with a shared passion for anything quilting and their families. Based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, they are developing a national reputation as superb teachers with a humorous outlook and a devotion to sharing all they know.

Review:

This is a marvelous book for anyone who loves a "puzzle". Gave me great ideas for those blocks that don't quite fit. They put outrageous stuff together and it looks fabulous. I love stuff that's out of the ordinary, and this certainly is. I've added my personal ideas and touches, but thank the author for inspiring me to "climb out of the plain old quilt block box" and move on to greater quilting endeavors!! -Dolly L. Caswell
