Like most women, I'm really busy and I want projects that I can start and finish in a short period of time. Rectangle Pizzazz is a delicious quilting book that not only provides readers with fast, fun and easy quilting projects, it actually is user friendly and beginners will love it.

The author, Judy Sisneros, provides a brief overview of choosing fabrics and colors, discusses the tools you'll need, and throughout the book are helpful hints for making your quilting time much more fun, not to mention easier. The directions are easy to follow and the colorful photographs will keep the quilter on track. At the back of the book are easy directions for finishing a quilt. Follow them carefully and you'll be thrilled with what you've accomplished

If you quilt at all, you will have a `stash'. If you're like me, your stash could stock a quilting store. The patterns in Rectangle Pizzazz easily fit the stash of fabric you have on hand.

My personal favorite is "Curves Around the Rectangle." It's my first project from the book, and I have stacks of Asian fabric I've been aching to use. The focus fabric is going to be difficult as I have so many to choose from. Well, I guess that means more than one of my daughters will be getting a new quilt. I'm not sure if I can actually start and complete the top in a day, but I'm going to give it a good try.

Another fun quilt to try is "Rectangles on Point." The pattern catches the eye, the directions are easy to follow, and it actually looks like it is a fun, fast, quilt top to make.

Armchair Interviews says: If you love to quilt and are limited by time, Rectangle Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished

Judy Sisneros' book was everything I expected. Pattern instructions and detail were very clear and precise. I enjoyed making my own versions of Blooming Rectangles and Rectangles behind Bars.

This book is delightfully simple in method. You don't need to buy dozens of different fabrics to coordinate. You can easly do this on a beginners budget and time!
If you fall in love with a topic or large scale print then it stays in your stash waiting, NOW is the time to pull it out and USE it. I'm trying to chew through my stash and get projects completed that will make great gifts that appear as though I spent FAR MORE TIME and ENERGY. Pick this book up and have a couple girl friends over for a mini workshop day!

Everyone who looks at this book finds something of interest. It's colourful, user friendly so it is easy to understand and the quilts are quick and easy to make. Some could be used as 'stash busters' so as you make a quilt from your stash you are making way for new beautiful fabric to make more of these wonderful quilts.

I got Judy's 9-Patch Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished in a Day after seeing it in my LQS. It had some fun, simple patterns in it, with ideas for using those ideas to create other quilts based on the basic idea. To be honest, I am a long-time quilter, with a depth of experience, and have designed quilts myself for many years. However, I have a stash of large prints that I had not been able to come up with any ideas for, and was frustrated. My work usually is based on applique, and I wanted something quick and easy, so 9-Patch Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished in a Day was an investment in 'what to do when I have quilter's block and just want to make something fun'.

This book doesn't have it same feel as the first one. It feels more rushed, and less like something she enjoyed writing, as compared to the first one. It wasn't as creative, and her fabric choices were less than stellar. It isn't bad, but not up to her capabilities.

I hope she comes out with more books. I know she has the creativity, I just hope she is given the time to write up to her own standards in the future.

I love this book! It has some really awesome quilt patterns, actually I like all of them in this book. They are all unique, different then the standard quilts I've seen, which I like, and with just a little modification you can make a whole new look. I've made one of the quilts from the book already and would love to make all of them!

Easy and quick instructions to make wall hangings and quilts that look harder than what it actually was to make.
