Book is filled with lovely and unique quilts to make. I would recommend this book for the intermediate/experienced quilter. Instructions are written for a quilter who knows the basics of quilt making. Lots of photos, good instructions and alternatives.

There are 16 wonderful quilts in this book. My only problem is which one do I start with. I want to make them all.

A paragraph about the quilt begins the instructions followed by a colored photo. The finished quilt and block sizes are given. Clearly written instructions include a material and cutting list. The instructions themselves have graphics to help make sure you are doing the piecing correctly. A color box gives tips or different colorways.

One of the best things about these instructions is that actual quilting suggestions are provided. That is sometimes the hardest part for me, figuring out what to use as a quilting motif.

For those quilts that need templates for applique or paper piecing templates, they are provided at full size. That is great as you don't have to run out to get copies. The final chapter is a quilting basic section and is eight pages long. It even has some good tips for those of us who have been quilting for years.

Nice quilt patterns and I am anxious to try them. Good instructions, not too involved and I like the bright colors used in the quilts.

What makes Eye-catching Quilts so sight-worthy? The answer lies in the basic elements of striking color choices, original block construction, pleasing layouts, and motile quilting designs. 16 projects by seven different graphic designers, art directors, and editors of Quiltmaker Magazine are featured here, plus one project is identified as a "joint staff" effort.

The first project, "Duette" - by Carolyn Beam - is lovely in red and taupe; it also includes directions for a doll-house sized quilt and incorporates the fast version of Flying Geese. Beam also designed my favorite "Raspberry Truffles" which is positively luscious with its pinks and browns in a very traditional setting. "Falling Leaves" - by Erin Wilcoxon - has an asymmetric block placement that mimics 3 different types of leaves wafting down to the ground. Diane Harris's "All Drezzed Up" updates the Dresden Plate block with punchy colors and a novel plate-within-a-plate construction. Theresa Eisinger designed the quilt on the cover; "Pinwheel Pirouette" employs vivid batiks and a few challenging technical maneuvers.

All of the projects include charming quilting suggestions and many also have alternate color options. (I wish all quilting books did this!) And yes, there are many templates, Y-seams and setting in, and foundations. The largest project is Beam's "Pinwheel Party" which has 104 six-inch blocks; it finishes at 102.5 inches square. The smallest quilt is Theresa Eisinger's "Petit Jardin" at 18.5 by 21.5 inches; it features a foundation-based watering can and 2 sizes of foundation fowers.
