Editorial Reviews

Review

This new book from Jan is just music to my ears because there are twelve new diamond patterns but without any inset seams! The designs in this collection begin with the 45DG diamond or, for the mathematicians, the parallelogram.No, don't switch off because, although creating detailed geometric patterns can be challenging, anyone of any ability will enjoy this light-hearted pattern collection with some easy piecing options that piece together in a relatively short time. Try the beginner friendly techniques and maybe even a spot of maths. (Fabrications, 10/2010 )

Diamonds need not be intimidating! Jan Krentz shows you how to make diamond quilts without set-in seams. She gives tips on color, value, texture, and contrast, and shows how to use geometric prints to add impact to your quilts. Book includes twelve new patterns and thirty inspirational gallery quilts. (Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting, May 1, 2010 )

Jan Krentz just spoke at our quilt club & I loved the quilts she had to show & tell. Then I browsed her book and would like to buy it. I'm curious if anyone bought &/or used the Kindle version of this book. If I bought the e-book, could I print accurate templates or patterns on my printer? I do not have Kindle Fire ... just the plain Kindle, but can "Kindle" it to my computer. Thanks, Claire

Not only is the technique different, the quilts in the book are eye candy. Jan gives a new spin on the backgrounds to enhance any applique. It is very interesting to see the quilts evolve. I get tired of mass production of some quilt patterns. This really keeps my interest.

I bought for my wife who quilts while I watch the Giants. She says: very inspiring! helps me look at new ways to design a quilt and to play with color. Jan Krentz's approach creates designs and color interplay that create very satisfying quilts. A book I will go back to over and over again.
