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.
