This book is laid out exactly the same as the first. It is indexed by shape and by thread count. Need a star shape to fill a 7 x 8 thread count area? Look under the Stars are Shining index or look under the thread count index for size 7 x 8. There are 72 stitches for Diamonds are Forever, 50 stitches for Hearts a 'Beatin, 37 stitches for Octagons, and 33 stitches for Stars are Shining. The book has large, easy-to-read diagrams and is spiral-bound so it lies flat when open.
