We reviewed Wanderlust by Tanis Gray, not available on Rav as I said in the podcast so sorry…It is a great book with amazing patterns and designers, it has an amazing layout as all the patterns are clustered together which makes it easy to find the grouping of patterns you are looking for. We thank our contact at F&W Media, Interweave for allowing us to review this book.
