you are a keen quilter who also loves doing puzzles, this
should hit the spot. There are over sixty large print puzzles
in this good-sized book, all with a quilting theme. Printed
on smooth, bright white paper and heavy enough to fall open
and stay put, this is a user-friendly book with very visible
black print, although not all of it is large. Much is the
same size you see in any other magazine-sized puzzle book,
but on better paper and blacker type. There are seven different
types of puzzles in here, all of the word variety. You won’t
find any of the more recent Japanese type such as sudoku or
han-jie, but instead plenty of logic problems, kris kross,
crosswords, word searches and three other types. If you don’t
know how to solve any of these there are instructions at the
front, and for checking answers (or when stuck) all solutions
can be found at the back. Some quilting knowledge is required
to solve several types of puzzles such as crosswords and anagrams,
and puzzles are graded according to difficulty with the easiest
at the front. The paper is better quality than that found
in the average puzzle magazine or book, making it easier to
erase mistakes and not be left with a hole. I am a puzzle
addict who is always looking for something new and I enjoyed
the quilting theme, paper quality and a new type of puzzle
(to me anyway) that combines a crossword with a word search.
Of course you can buy a cheap puzzle book for a lot less than
$10 but not if you want themed puzzles or good quality paper.
It would make an ideal gift if you can bear to part with it!
you cannot find a good range of quilting materials locally
