Each of these book has 25-40 projects. The first two are mostly fabric craft projects, dolls, placemats, wreaths and quilted wall hangings, pillows, etc. The third book is mostly quilts, all sizes, all skill level and all scrap! The fourth book has a good mix of quilts and smaller projects; many of the projects can be made for year-round use.
