Architects need blueprints. Writers need drafts. Quilters crafting a creation from Colour, Block & Quilt need the Workbook. Well, you don't need it, strictly speaking, but it sure could help to have a paper models of the quilt you're going to make in order to get it just perfect before you put thread to fabric, couldn't it? Besides, how often do you have such a good excuse to haul out that paste and scissors and play with miniatures? All the other quilters will be jealous -- and you'll be spoiled for the next time you want to create a quilt that doesn't have a Workbook!
