    Tucked Up in Bed
    By Jennie Raiment

    This is the third, but not the final, episode in the series on “textures and tucks”. More wonderful surprises in store, this time each of the fabric bits have been calculated out of a 12" quilt block so that you can do a quilt, tote bag or the back of a jacket or vest. Of course, you’ll think of lots of ways to use these fabulous bits. Jennie spices up the book with tales of her experiences after writing a “Seeks Gent” ad in the London Times. Not to worry about your teenage daughters reading this, mothers, it’s all very clean and wonderfully funny!
