There are 20 cute and fun quilts to make in this fun book. All the quilts are small, table or wall sized, and they will take you very little time to whip up for yourself or a loved one.

My favorite quilt is the pattern called..."Don't Tip your Chair at the Table." It is the fun method of piecing a quilt, and then cutting out squares and repiecing it to make it look wonky and like windmills. I am a sucker for quilts made in a different and unique way. I love it, and I totally want to try it out.

There are also patterns for a fun and funky pillow, and a super cute tree skirt. You should totally check this book out.

Get out your charm packs, your precut quilt fabrics and create. There are 20 patterns that should satisfy any quilter. Country style quilts have a look halfway between traditional and modern. Country with contemporary. One step on from their first book, the authors have challenged themselves to come up with different ways of using charm squares. They have succeeded with easy to make, stylish quilts with great colourways and designs. The instructions are brilliant and the photography is superb. Top of the class.

This book has beautiful small quilt projects any quilter would enjoy, including wall hangings, table runners, pillows, and more, using pre-cut 5" charm squares of fabric (hence the title). Most of the finished quilts measure 36" or less with a few reaching 40-52" in length, so they are great for people like me who like to start and finish a project relatively quickly. I have to say this book has definitely inspired me to dust off my sewing machine and visit my local fabric store. I'd love to make a table runner for an old cedar chest in my home and found several possibilities in this book.

I consider myself a beginner-novice quilter in that I know some basics of machine piecing and hand quilting, but haven't done much of either, so I read this book from the viewpoint of a beginner. While it does assume the reader has basic sewing knowledge, I didn't find anything that was confusing so I feel I could make any project in this book without intimidation. The instructions and diagrams were clear and found the tips to be helpful. The color photographs of the finished quilts are gorgeous and inspiring.

There are 20 projects in this book that quilters of any level will enjoy.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicted, nor was a positive review required.

This book contains 20 projects all using charm squares. These packages of squares are very popular right now so you will be able to find a pattern/color that inspires you to create one of these quilts. There are even directions to make them if you don't have the pre-cut squares.

Each project has a color photo of the finished item, with a small blurb about the project as well. Material and cutting lists, along with the rest of the instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. There are also enough graphics for those of us who like visual help. Unfortunately, the general "quilt as desired" is the only finishing suggestions.

Some of the patterns are for the more experienced quilter with inset seams. Most are done with straight seams or half square triangles. There is even a tree skirt but it is cleverly done as a square and then simply cut into a circle and bound.

While these are smaller projects, as all quilters know, you can just add a few more blocks and have the size you need. So even though it is written as smaller projects, if you find one that you love, just make more blocks!

If you are a Country Threads fan, of course you need this book. Twenty projects using 5"x5" charm squares (regular yardages also included). Small quilts, tablerunners, a tree skirt and a large pillow all reflect their distinctive placement of color and fabric. Clear instructions and extra tips, and even etiquette lessons (!), written in their farm-friendly style. Love this book.

I absolutely love this pattern book. The authors are clever with their use of 'charm' in their quilts. I would love to make every project in the book...I bet I have a charm pack for each ;)
