Pretty in Patchwork: Doll Quilts by Cathy Gaubert is just loaded with fun little projects. Everything from piecing, to applique, embroidery and more. I like that these are small projects and whip up quickly for some instant gratification in between those larger projects. I've just gotten into hand embroidery and these darling little quilts are the perfect place to add some hand stitched embellishments. These are just the projects to dig into your stash and use up some of those scraps and experiment with new techniques that you've been wanting to try. Clear, well written instuctions and templates make this a perfect book for beginners as well as more experienced quilters and sewists. You won't be disappointed!

"The doll quilt is the perfect package", says author Cathy Gaubert. I completely agree, including the fact that Doll Quilts offer an opportunity to try out new techniques without the big commitment of a full size quilt. It is clear that the twenty contributing designers really enjoyed coming up with ideas for doll quilts -- the book is full of vibrant colors and a feel of child-like wonder! Even if you are new to quilting, there is a basic overview of quilting techniques and explanations of them, to help you learn what you need to get started.

There are so many wonderful ideas in Doll Quilts, like simple geometric pastels, appliqued apples and a hand-stitched Little Red Riding Hood inside of a Dresden Plate pattern. The Dream Doll Quilt has two tiny quilts sewn on top of it that offer the perfect place for a little doll and its pet to sleep for the night. If you like a woodland feel, the Forestopia quilt (made by Quilt Dad, the only male in the bunch!), evokes the feeling of being in a forest, with the animals slightly camouflaged among the graphical nature elements. I loved the Ticker Tape design, with its strips of lovely fabric arranged up and down all over the quilt in a beautiful pattern. Doll Quilts are ideal as a smaller project and will certainly delight a young person in your life when you give them their very own handmade treasure.

I bought this for my almost 7 year old to go with a sewing machine for Christmas, and we already have cut and pieced the quilt from the cover. Just a fun book with cute projects. Well written and great photos. Love it for the young and old alike!

This is a wonderful quilt book for people interested in doll-size quilts and smaller for children, decoration or whatever. Although working with small pieces may seem difficult the designs are actually quite easy to follow.
