SKINNY QUILTS
BY: KIM SCHAEFER

All the quilts in this book are very modern in design and all of them would make wonderful bed quilts. There are 15 projects of skinny bed warmers or table runners. I have a lot of wall space that is skinny and long which I think Kim's designs in this book would be wonderful as contemporary art. All of the designs are from very simple block design but really have a dramatic look. Color and texture is the trick to these designs because of the simple blocks; you really could play with color. I have read several of Kim's books and they are always show lots of impact from simple design. This one is packed full of ideas for any level quilter. In fact, I have a group of quilters at church and I think I would like to try one of Kim's design in a large quilt with them, I know beginners will not have trouble piecing the blocks from these book. The piecing instructions are very simply done with good illustration, not much room for err!!

These days I find myself too busy to undertake really big projects, so I've been on the lookout for smaller, more manageable projects to keep my creative juices going. Skinny Quilts definitely gives me some nice projects to do! There is a nice variety of projects in a variety of methods, including pieced and appliqué, from modern to traditional layouts. I especially like the patterns for Leaves and Happy Jacks - super cute, fresh and fun!

Kim Schaefer's directions are clear and her tips are helpful. The illustrations are very clear and show how easy her patterns come together. The patterns are fun enough for intermediate or advanced quilters (like me) and clear enough for a beginning quilter, too.

Just gorgeous. A wonderful book with beautiful patterns. Such a good book for making your dining room shine with projects that don't take months to do and hundreds of dollars in materials.

Format: Paperback
Skinny Quilts by Kim Schaefer contains twelve little quilt projects that can be used as table runners, wall quilts or bed runners. Schaefer's Skinny Quilts are bright and easy to make, even for a beginner. Skinny Quilts are very contemporary, and will look nice in any color scheme.
Schaefer first includes directions for making quilts in Skinny Quilts. She covers cutting, piecing, fusible appliqué and more.
My favorite quilt is titled "Leaves" and the parts of the leaves are large, and they are appliquéd to a background and border. The blocks in this quilt measure 16". I would enjoy making the quilt just because of its simplicity and ease of producing it.
Skinny Quilts is a good book for anyone wanting a fast project or anyone just learning to quilt. The quilts are fun and would good in any contemporary setting.

Subtitled 15 bed runners, table toppers and wall hangings, this book is for all those who want to make smaller quilts - quicker to make and just as lovely as full-size quilts. Kim shows her great sense of design and colour for the contemporary home. As always with CT Publishing, great layout, great book design with easy to use instructions and super photos. It makes the quilt construction very easy to follow. Chunky Monkey is my favourite design, but I liked them all. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

Another neat Skinny Quilt book. Even though they are really long quilts, they can be easily shortened for use on a door or a narrow wall.

This book will provide a great number of ideas for wallhangings and table runners. Quilts can also be adapted to fit beds. The quilts are fun and happy.

When you've made too many large quilts, skinny quilts are wonderful options for someone with very little wall space to hang their art. Also, they're great on tables, dressers, beds, etc. They're also great for gifts.
