Review

Quilts from Grandmother's Garden: A Fresh Look at English Paper Piecing provides a fine set of projects inspired by the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt tradition, teaching how to sew hexagons into applique units for lovely floral designs. Ten projects include a wall quilt and numerous flowers, leaves and nature scenes that can all be created using 1/4" to 1/2" hexagon shapes. Patterns and color photos throughout lend to a lovely gathering of unique projects based on an old tradition, and perfect for quilters seeking something different. --The Bookwatch, October 2012

This is the second book in these review pages by the author Jaynette Huff, but this time the emphasis is solely on English paper piecing, almost a dying art, but revived in a fresh manner in this publication. With a little handwork, a few quick tricks and today's modem equipment; you can create flowers, leaves, baskets, butterflies and more by using quarter to half inch hexagon shapes. There ru-e ten small projects ranging in size and measuring up to 45" square, so there is still time to make that small friendship gift for that special person in time for Christmas.
--Fabrications Quilting For You, December 2012/January 2013

From the Inside Flap

A little handwork--and a few quick tricks--is all it takes to create these striking quilts inspired by old-fashioned Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts. Instead of sewing together thousands of tiny hexagons, make appliqué units instead!

This is actually a great book. I think they should have been more up front about the fact that it's primarily for miniature quilts but all you have to do is use larger hexagons and simply follow the same designs which I found to be unique. Am working on a traditional Grandmother's Quilt currently but when completed will start on the one pictured on the cover only using 1 1/2" or maybe even 2" templates instead. The book is well layed out, quite explicit re technique and an all out fresh approach to using hexagons. It's GREAT piece work while watching TV.

This book has got some really beautiful patterns. The only thing is it doesn't tell you the sequence of the hexagons to be sewn.

This book is full of beautiful quilts made with the Grandmother's garden templates. The only problem is they are small quilts using 1/2" to 1/4" templates. I was hoping for full sized quilt patterns. But the examples in the book have given me inspiration to use them in full sized quilts.

Yet another wonderful book of ideas to use with English Paper Piecing hexagons. As other reviewers said the patterns are for
mini hexagons. If you want to make the patters larger just increase the size of the hexagons. She has some great ideas for using parts of the hexagons to create other shapes like butterflies. Another great book on English Paper Piecing. I gave this a four because the patterns are limited to the hexagon shapes. The New English Paper Piecing: A Faster Approach to a Traditional Favorite is a more modern use of this technique and includes other shapes besides the hexagon and that it is why I gave it a five. Both books are a wonderful addition to your Applique Library.

Very nice quilts, but I was disappointed to find out that the
scale is quite small. I will probably not make any of the
quilts.

I have never wanted to try English paper piecing because of all the time spent in removing the paper. After reading this book, I have even less desire. The pieces are even smaller than the ones I had read about in the past which were 1" or 2".

I think the quilts made from this style are beautiful; I just don't have the patience for it. These pieces are ¼" or ½". With having to fold the edges in, baste and then sew the edges of the pieces together, that is a lot of work right there. Then you have to remove the paper. Even more work.

Then the instructions say that the method used to join the hexagons is different than traditional English paper piecing. Since I have never done either, I presume from reading the book the difference is that traditional paper piecing is put together with right side together where this method is held flat (side by side) when stitching them together.

There are 10 patterns for you to try your hand at. The instructions contain everything you need to create the project from cutting and material lists to graphics in the written instructions. There is even a fabric color key. If templates for leaves, etc. are needed, they are included at full size.

I like to read about the background of the person who wrote the book and the last page is this author's bio. If you have the patience, this book will walk you through how to make the most beautiful quilts.
