This is the second stained glass pattern book of Anna Croyle's that I've purchased. I thought the Modern Designs pattern book was fantastic, so I pr-ordered this one through Amazon. I was thrilled when I got it & like it as much or more than Modern Designs. Her style really resonates with my own. I have used a couple of her patterns without modification, but what I like most about her patterns is the ease with which I can modify the designs & create something unique without the time-consuming process of starting from scratch. Although some of the patterns have cuts that would be extremely difficult without a saw, which I don't have, most are workable with just an old fashioned hand cutter. So far I haven't had any trouble with them. I really appreciated the variety, volume & quality of the color pictures in this book of each pattern. I highly recommend this pattern book.
