The quilts involve the idea of superimposing one pattern over another. One quilt incorporates Maple Leaves into a Log Cabin block. Another strews flowers over an Irish Chain. Yet another builds a Virginia Reel from logs. And there are 3 star-within-a-star patterns.
The chocolate chip cookie recipe tries to answer the question of how many chips and how much butter can be packed into one cookie. The answer is apparently more than you ever thought possible! Among the cookies are an oatmeal spice cookie with cinnamon chips and a peanut butter cookie with chocolate and peanut butter chips. The bars are all different flavored brownie-like confections on a shortbread base.
Every quilt pattern includes color diagrams, rotary cutting instructions, and full-size templates. The recipes are thorough and easy to follow.
