Looking at the table of 'contents' section tells you that these quilts are just plain fun. The beginning of the book focuses on a very well thought out 'quilting basics' section. The book is also peppered with great short-cut ideas. A combination of captivating hand drawn images as well as photographs makes reading the directions, for the 'basics' as well as for the quilts totally enjoyable. Quilt directions are beautifully done - exemplars of the quilts are shown in sketches as well as photographs.
The book contains 12 simple quilt designs - each of which has an added, endearing, element. Folk artsy, colorful, embroidered and unique additions to each design makes these simple quilts stand out. The ideas are, of course, great for a child - but also for the adults in the crowd who look for a touch on whimsy in everything! The designs are great for beginner's, especially with the wonderful 'basics' chapter to guide them, but also would be winner's for adults as well.
There are also lots of tips and tricks for applique, embroidery, quilting, bindings and how to add fun elements like small pockets.
This book makes me smile. It makes me want to put more fun back into my quilting.Read more ›

This is a dated book. I am a quilter and like to see everything quilted...just to see how it was and is. These are pretty dated, but interesting nonetheless.Published 20 months ago by tcjm
