As well as books I've bought from new I've also acquired a few books secondhand. One of these books is this one from 1978, which was published by the BBC, called Discovering Patchwork, from a television series about patchwork, so this is about 38 years old. It's in a good state, the pages aren't even yellowed.
There are projects such as an apron, cot quilt and several cushions and this rather fetching waistcoat.
Very clear instructions about how to draw the templates for patchwork
