Review: Seams to Me by Anna Maria Horner

I love Anna Maria Fabric collection and designs, I am a huge fan. However I think this book wasn't at all what I had expected. The author could have come up with some other designs then the ones which are easily available on the web. The book tries to cover project for everyone in the family with tips, techniques and photograph accompanied with projects like Sideway square skirt and Priaire Blouse and more but still there is nothing special or rather different in any of the projects. This would be a good book for someone who doesn't spend much time on net searching for free patterns but sewer's who do would not be too thrilled with the purchase. I noticed a error in pattern which again was not what I had expected froman author like Anna Maria or her team.
As I said I love her fabric however this book did not meet my expectation especially someone who has been doing this for long.I hope this was just because this was her 1st book and she may have something good in her other book
