Packed with techniques, patterns, and inspiration for small-scale quilts. Doll-sized quilts can be completed relatively quickly and inexpensively. They can be made into pillow covers, runners, or wall decorations, or used as a lesson or as a trial for a larger project; and they can be swapped, gifted, or posted. In Little Quilts' 15 step-by-step projects, sometimes the quilt is just one block, sometimes several blocks, but all have been designed with the same attention to detail as a full-sized quilt. Seven quilts have been designed by Sarah Fielke and seven by Amy Lobsiger, and the final quilt is a collaboration--with Amy making the central circle, then sending it to Sarah to turn it into a finished quilt. Techniques include hand and machine-quilting, traditional piecing, paper piecing, appliqué, and embroidery. The size of the quilts (nothing larger than 24x24 inches) will tempt you to try a new sewing technique or a new design concept, and you can follow the instructions or use them as inspiration for your own quilt design.

En esta obra, Levitt y Dubner demuestran, a través de ejemplos y una sarcástica perspicacia, que la economía representa el estudio de los incentivos. ¿Qué resulta más peligroso: una pistola o una piscina? ¿Qué tienen en común un maestro de escuela y un luchador de sumo? ¿Por qué continúan los traficantes de drogas viviendo con sus madres? ¿En qué se parecen el Ku Kux Klan a los agentes inmobiliarios? Quizás éstas no sean las típicas preguntas que se formula un experto en economía, pero Steven D. Levitt y Stephen J. Dubner no son unos economistas muy típicos. Se trata de especialistas que estudian la esencia y los enigmas de la vida cotidiana y cuyas conclusiones, con frecuencia, ponen patas arriba la sabiduría convencional. A través de ejemplos prácticos y de una sarcástica perspicacia, Levitt y Dubner demuestran que la economía, en el fondo, representa el estudio de los incentivos: el modo en que las personas obtienen lo que desean, o necesitan, especialmente cuando otras personas desean o necesitan lo mismo.

Una mujer que huye de su tierra con los ojos cerrados y aprende a mirar de frente en un mundo que aún desconoce la palabra libertad. Más allá del horizonte, una tierra repleta de nuevas oportunidades espera. «Siempre puedo volver», va pensando la joven cuáquera Honor Bright. Mientras el barco parte de Bristol hacia tierras americanas, esta idea fija alivia sus dudas y lejos está la sospecha de que nunca verá de nuevo a su querida Inglaterra... Tras una larga y angustiosa travesía en barco, un trágico acontecimiento obliga a Honor a enfrentarse a un mundo extraño y hostil. El Ohio de 1850 es un lugar precario, que no ofrece comodidades ni admite sensiblerías. El sol de verano en los maizales es abrasador, las tormentas de otoño pueden ser devastadoras y en invierno la nieve cae sin misericordia. Las calles están llenas de lodo y escupitajos, y los bosques acogen animales y hombres extraños: por ahí andan mofetas y mapaches, pero también los esclavos fugitivos que cada día pasan por estas tierras en busca de libertad. Honor pronto aprende que valores como la compasión y la igualdad no tienen cabida en este lugar, marcado aun por el lastre de la esclavitud. Solo la dignidad la mantiene viva y le da fuerzas para seguir adelante por un camino donde no hay espacio ni tiempo para tomar el té de las cinco de la tarde. La autora de La joven de la perla regresa con fuerza de la mano de esta nueva heroína, una mujer que huye de su tierra con los ojos cerrados y aprende a mirar de frente en un mundo que aún desconoce la palabra libertad.
