About the Author

Amy Smart loved to play with her mom's sewing machine when she was small and first learned to quilt as a girl, but she didn't begin quilting in earnest until after her first baby arrived in 1999, when she needed an artistic outlet and yearned to accomplish something that stayed done.


She worked Saturdays in a local quilt shop for seven years. She taught beginning quilting classes and found that she loved watching other people fall in love with collecting fabric, cutting it up, and sewing it back together. In 2008 she started her now-popular blog, www.DiaryofaQuilter.com, documenting her creations and sewing adventures. Amy thoroughly enjoys participating in the online quilting community and continues to be inspired by the people she has met, both virtually and in real life.


Amy lives in Utah with her patient and encouraging husband and four busy children who fortunately think nothing of random piles of fabric or seam rippers placed strategically throughout the house. As a family they like to explore the outdoors together and laugh at silly Internet videos.

I loved this book and thought it was everything it was supposed to be. Lots of tips and shortcuts for any level sewer and some fabulous patterns that are a lot easier than they look. Great job Amy.

I have been quilting for about 5 years, so not really a beginner....however, I am self-taught and find that sometimes when following a pattern I have questions that aren't addressed. But just flipping through this book I found answers to questions that I've had (like the tip to align ruler markings with the middle seams when cutting strip-pieced blocks.) The diagrams and photos are very helpful. I look forward to making some of these quilts -- I especially liked the Modern Buzz Saw and appreciate that there is no fabric waste with this method! This is a good book for those of us who need a few shortcuts with clear directions. I've never been brave enough to cut through stacks of fabric -- with the fun Square Deal quilt I may just try it!

I have been a fan of Amy's blog and patterns for some time so I was excited to download this kindle version of the book. I am experimenting with getting quilting books on kindle because a) they're cheaper, b) they save paper, and c) I'll be able to keep them forever. I'm really glad to have this on kindle because it's a keeper! There are no small quilts in this book but it appears that these quilts will come together very easily with the techniques like using precut or efficient cutting of fabrics. I believe a lot of these patterns can easily be modified for scrap-busting. True, there are not long winded explanations of techniques for how to quilt, but for that the author gives a link for visiting the publisher' web site, or you could easily google a YouTube tutorial. My fave print book to explain quilting techniques is Elizabeth Hartman's book. I recommends his book if you are looking for a large number of fun, easy quilts to make!

I'm a beginner when it comes to quilting. Small projects, table runners and baby blankets. I wanted to find patterns that I could easily cut and put together that were larger than what I've done so far. This book is perfect!
