This book is excellent for so many reasons. It's as the title says, 26 contemporary small quilts from 26 different contributors. So of course its going to be an eclectic mix of projects, how can it not be? But this is one of the books key strengths; the variety of projects will push the willing out of their comfort zones and inspire them to produce great new quilts. I'm at a loss to understand the reviewers who see this as a negative - to those I say, - get a life and try something new! you might even surprise yourself!
The mix of difficulty levels and design styles makes this a great resource for quilters at every level. But there is even more in this gem of a book, there's detailed techniques, clear concise hand drawn illustrations, even a history of mini quilts!
This is so clearly not just another quilting book. Whipup Mini Quilts is a unique, thoughtfully crafted, well executed exploration of the mini quilt. Kathreen Ricketson has really set herself a high standard in this, her first book, I cant wait to see what she does next!
