Review

Colorful Quilts for Playful Kids, 14 colorful Projects with Dozens of Playful Designs to Mix & Match" is a stunning collection of appealing quilt craft projects that can be shared opportunities to pursue intergenerational bonding. Here are instructions and patterns plus extra helps for creating six uniquely bright quilts and also several other related projects, including a messenger bag, drawstring toy bag, and a pillow and a pillow sham. A section on Other Things You Need to Know includes equipment and supplies, instructions for preparing, arranging, and stitching appliqué, and embellishing and finishing. Color photographs of zany, bright quilt creations keep attention focused and interest high, while simple step by step instructions accompanied by a sidebar listing of materials needed presents the project details from start to finish. Some of the quilts shown are titled Zany Zoo, Paisley Princess, Construction Zone, and Alphabet Puzzle, to name a few. For a fun quilting experience to be shared between generations, "Colorful Quilts for Playful Kids" meets the demand for loads of fun-filled, contented hours spent together. --Midwest Book Review--Wisconsin Bookwatch; December, 2012

Colorful Quilts for Playful Kids provides a fine examination of quilt designs and themes with kids in mind, and offers some fourteen projects with dozens of 'mix and match' ideas. Many quilts are designed with the idea of getting kids involved in the process, while others have kid-friendly themes such as an alphabet puzzle quilt or a zoo quilt. Any either producing a quilt for a child or seeking to involve a child in the quilt-making process will find this a winner! --Midwest Book Review--Bookwatch; January, 2013

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book full of items that all kids love such as trucks, princesses and lots of color. The first few pages even tell you how to get your kids involved in the making of their quilt.

There are a dozen projects that include quilts, a toy bag, pillows and wall hangings. Templates are included at full size so no copying is needed to get started. A 20-page section gives you all the tips and techniques you need to make the projects.

The pattern itself has a color photo with finished size. The materials list is set off in a colored box. The cutting list is very easy to read. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and have plenty of graphics so you know you are doing it right.

Whether you have a little gal or guy in your life, this book will give you something you can make for either one. You might even become their favorite person.

I have been looking for patterns for construction vehicles and this is great. Just what I had in mind for a quilt for my grandson.

Designs are cheerful and bright; directions are clear; worth the money. I wanted simpler ideas for quick cute quilts for a fund raiser.
