    Nice variety of quilt patters. I really like the concept of limiting to 5 fabrics. My color and print choices may differ from the book, but that's the exact point of Take 5 - to make an individualized choice for your own quilts. One tip: if you own a Sizzix die cutter, many of the pieces in this book can be cut using the quilting dies. Useful for arthritic hands! One other tip: with limited fabric variety, block placement is very important, so devise a design wall, even if it's nothing more than hanging a flannel backed tablecloth backwards on the wall. It will help with creating a pleasing arrangement. Also, many of these quits can easily be enlarged, just by doing some math and adding to the yardages.
