All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Storms presents eight patriotic-themed patterns. An introduction to each project describes required tools and sewing materials and provides directions for basic stitches; a final section explains how to assemble the quilt blocks to finish the pieces. The color images, including photos of the completed projects, make following the instructions easier, but beginning quilters will need assistance. Copyright 2004 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 4-6-This book gives beginning quilters the opportunity to undertake eight patriotic projects (think stars and stripes). Written in an easy-to-read manner, the step-by-step instructions guide children from the basic piecing and stitching to the final project. Clear and colorful cartoonlike drawings illustrate each section of the activity, and a full-color photograph of the finished product is included. None of the projects requires a sewing machine. However, the overall organization may seem confusing to novices and may require adult assistance. Readers are often referred to different parts of the book for illustrated instructions, e.g., "small running stitch (page 9)"; "follow the instructions on pages 34 to 38 for piecing, layering, quilting and binding."
