The book is 96 pages with lots of full color illustrations. Jean Wells takes you into fresh territory where you use your own vision to design and piece free form quilts that will surprise even you.

I would say this is for an experienced quilter who wants to take their quilting to another level, a quilter with the confidence to make mistakes and willing to learn new techniques.
