Quilts, Baby!

I'm not usually a fan of recommending books where you can't see inside to see if the patterns are really for you. But now that I saw the cover quilt executed by Vanina over at mother crafter, I think I might like this book!

Now, Quilts, Baby! isn't just quilts, the ideas and designs are repurposed across several baby crafts, so it's up to you to decide whether it's worth it. But it looks to me like it would be an opportunity to learn some new construction techniques and get inspiration for ways to incorporate embroidery more in projects.

Anyone have experience with this book that you'd like to share? And how do you use embroidery in your quilts? (Something I should consider more often.)
