Project books should (1) inspire, (2) provide clear instructions and (3) offer at least a few ideas the novice wouldn't have conceived without the expert's creativeness. This book provides lots of color photos and step by step instructions that should encourage the novice sewer. Since the book description mentions experienced crafters, I was disappointed to see such simple projects. Precut Patchwork Party is well named if you plan to have a group of Scouts make an oven mitt at a sewing-for-charity party. Or host a Mommy and Me party where newbie sewers leave with matching aprons. Project 1 is a reversible table runner made with precut 2.5 inch strips. On one side of the runner, the strips are sewn side by side and run vertically, on the flip side they run horizontally. Okay, a first project can be simple so beginners can gain confidence by starting with the basics. But the trend continued with a director's chair seat and back made with strips sewn side by side and then hemmed to fit. Placemats had six vertical strips combined with 4 vertical ones. A tablecloth had six inch charm squares sewn in five rows of five squares that were then bordered by several rows of 2.5 inch strips. Unfortunately, I am experienced seamstress/quilter and was hoping for some novel ways to use precut squares and strips. There are books that have inspired me such as Phenomenal Fat Quarter Quilts and Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts, so I don't believe I have unrealistic expectations. This book may be useful to you if you need to plan craft projects for summer camp, but it may be an option best borrowed from the library for the experienced sewer.

I would recommend "Precut Patchwork Party" to any beginner level sewer who wants to be able to complete a cute project within a short time span. This book utilizes the often overlooked gorgeous precut fabric squares and shows the reader how to use them to make fun and easy projects. I love the selection of beautiful fabric patterns that are available in precut fabric squares. However, I do not have time to make a quilt. Thankfully this book shows the reader how to utilize some of those squares and make them into useful home décor and gift items. Most of the projects can be done in an afternoon, which is about all the time I can spend on a project with my schedule.

The author explains the difference between fat quarters, strips, squares and fat eighths to the reader, as well as how to prepare for sewing. There is also a section on sewing supplies. I liked how the author kept this section simple.

There is also a general techniques section that has great photo's. I especially liked the explanation on how to make box pleats. The directions are simple and easy to follow.

The book includes projects that will appeal to a variety of different level sewers. I think that advance sewers would already know a lot of the techniques in the book but might enjoy the fun projects. It is really a matter of what a person is looking for in a project. My daughter, who is a beginner sewer, loved the rosette project. It was simple project that she was able to complete in less than a half hour. Some of the projects are a little more complicated and I would recommend working with your child if they want to make them. I liked the window valance and teapot cozy projects because I could complete them in a few hours.

some great ideas here. Some not for me, but good tips also. I'll keep going back to read it and get some ideas for gifts or a little project to keep me busy.

Great book I made several items out of it. I wish they showed how to make a t-shirt dress out of jelly rolls
