Ipcar's inspiration was a quilt she made in the 1940s for her son.

What sets the book apart is the illustrations, which are very 1960s.
The book explores, as Ipcar has said,
"The endless possibilities of patterns."
Georgann Eglinski was inspired by
Ipcar's ideas for a quilt for her first grandchild.
Dahlov Ipcar is still working. See pillows and rugs from her designs.
