Editorial Reviews

Review

We have all been seduced by the ubiquitous, yet irresistible, fat-quarter. But what do we do with these tempting, jewel-like squares of fabric? This book presents over 40 projects to inspire - from small to large, from functional to fabulous. Organized by the number of fat-quarters required, there is something for everyone and the perfect excuse to collect more FQs! Well illustrated in colour, with clear diagrams and full-size templates, this is an excellent book for the keen sewer.-East Kent Embroiderers' Guild

This has some nice projects, but a lot of them require yardage beyond the 5, 10 or 15 fat quarters. If I'd been able to look at it first, I would not have bought it. Unfortunately I don't have a decent shop nearby so I have to take these chances with books.

My daughter just bought this book and was VERY disappointed by it. While the title suggests that the projects can be completed with the given number of fat quarters, it was expected that a few things might be needed for the batting, backing, binding, and embellishments; HOWEVER, it was NOT the expectation that the projects would require the given number of fat quarters PLUS up to several yards of additional fabric (NOT intended for the backing or binding). The title is very misleading and the necessity for so many extras needed to complete a project should have been included in the book's description.

What a book! Loaded with lots of great projects that are both quick and easy.
I have made two totes and the prarie-point coasters and am ready to make more!
Big stash of fat quartes? Not so big stash? Beginner or seasoned quilter, this book is for you

THE PROJECTS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS I HAD HOPED. SOME OF THEM HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE FOR A WHILE. THE BOOK SEEMS TO BE A COLLECTIONS OF PAST PATTERNS. VERY DISAPOINTED. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND UNLESS YOU ARE A NEW QUILTER AND CRAFTER.

Normally I find the reviews on this site so helpful before I buy books of this nature, but for this one, I was stumped. The reviews are very divided as to its usefulness. After looking at the table of contents, I decided to buy it, and I am happy that I did. I think the contents rate 5 stars, but I agree with some other reviewers that the title is somewhat misleading. Looking past the title though, there are clear directions and large photos for the many attractive and stylish projects inside. About half of the book is devoted to projects that require only 2 to 5 fat quarters, and many do not require any additional fabric beyond the fat quarters. For bigger projects (such as runners and quilts), some additional fabric is required. Other reviewers commented that many of the projects are old ones. I didn't find that to be the case. For example, I am quite familiar with books on bags and totes as well as the childrens' items, and the designs in this book are quite original. They are very attractive and could also be adapted in many other imaginative ways from the guidance given here. For readers who simply want to use up assorted fat quarters already acquired though, this book may not be the best choice. For using up scraps and small squares (which could be cut from fat quarters), I like the book called _Charmed, I'm Sure_. It may be more to the liking of readers who are disappointed with the projects in the present book.

This book is wonderful. Even a beginner could make anyone of these projects and just because they are all made with Fat Quarters I used my scraps and no two are alike. I had as much fun reading the book as makeing the projects. Well worth the price

if you have collected fat quarters, some that coordinate some that do not.. this book gives you some ideas on using up your collection. arranged by the number of fat quarters needed there are a few good ideas within.

I was quite excited about the prospect of this book - quilt projects to make using the stash of fat quarters that I have managed to accumulate over the years. However the contents of the book do not live up to the hype, limited number of quilt projects with mostly small bags, table runners to make. Also many were familiar and I am sure I had seen most in magazines over the years.
