Sept 06 This book is suitable for absolute beginners: most quilts only use three or four fabrics and only squares and rectangles are used in their design but the results look much more complex than that would suggest. I haven't believed that a quilt can be made in a day since it took me nearly a year to complete a log-cabin quilt so described! However, this book uses panels and large squares and rectangles combined with 9-patch blocks and that gives me hope that the subtitle is accurate. The choice of fabrics and design guidelines at the beginning of the book are well illustrated, simple to comprehend and can be adapted to produce quilts of any size. Many manufacturers now produce focus fabrics and panels which come with associated companion fabrics. They are ideal for these quilts and give hesitant shoppers an easy way of coming to a decision. The six projects given in the second part are for small quilts which can be used as large wall-hangings or lap quilts. Precise fabric requirements are given and cutting and piecing instructions are clear as is the information on how to complete each quilt. * Popular Patchwork *
About the Author
Judy Sisneros's first memory of sewing is making a rag doll and doll clothes as a child. She took her first sewing lessons in 1964 but didn't start quilting until 1987. Her first quilting lessons were through the local adult school. After a move to California's far north coast, she began making landscape quilts. Her first book, Simply Landscapes, was published in 1994. Her second book, the popular 9-Patch Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished in a Day, was published in 2006, followed by Rectangle Pizzazz in 2008, both from C&T Publishing. Judy loves teaching and feels fortunate to be making a living doing something she loves. Judy tries to add a new workshop every year because so many of her students are repeat customers. She is available to teach and lecture nationwide. Her love of people, travel, and fabric makes her an enthusiastic teacher! Kits are available for purchase. Visit her website at www.judysisneros.com. She also organizes cruises for quilters. Judy has three grown children and seven grandchildren. She lives in Rocklin, California, near Sacramento.

I decided to purchase them both, one was new, and one used and received both in excellent condition. This title happened to be the used copy. I have purchased used from amazon in the past so I was not leery of saving a few extra dollars to do so.
Do not be afraid of purchasing used from Amazon, they advertise the condition of the used books, and never received a ratty copy.
the only difference is you will pay a little for the shipping cost on used books.
After reviewing both titles, this book had exactly what I was looking for in quilting, which was cascading flowers, and making a quilting that actually had the essence of looking like a painting.
Love this book.
Kudo's to Amazon for knowing what I was looking for and suggesting this book.
With over 35 years sewing experience, 15 years as a quilter, I didn't think I would gain much from this book. Was I wrong! This is a "sleeper", the kind of book you look at, then go back to and continue to learn something each time. Well worth investing in for your personal library.
This is a good book for beginning quilters who have some knowledge of quilt-making basics because of the clear and easy instructions and because they can come up with an interesting and unique quilt. But, because of the latter, it's also fun for experienced quilters. Plenty of suggestions for them to go off "on their own" for a more challenging project.
