Review

A charm square, a popular fabric precut, is a five-inch square that can be used on its own or subcut into a variety of shapes and sizes. Quilt and fabric designer Goertzen's lively collection explores the versatility of charm squares. She begins with quilts that use these squares with little or minimal subcutting, then demonstrates how to use them as rectangular and triangular components. The style is best described as “modern traditional,” with the majority of the quilts applying a standard, symmetrical grid layout. Pieced as presented, the majority of the quilts are throw-size, but the simple block construction makes the quilts easy to resize. VERDICT These cheery quilts demonstrate the versatility of charm squares and will inspire quilters to make use of these popular precuts. (Library Journal, 2/15/2017)

Use precut 5" squares to make 18 easy projects by author Vanessa Goertzen. You'll learn how to transform the simple squares into Snowballs, Stars, Flying Geese, and more. This book, featuring both traditional and modern patterns, is a must-have for precut collectors. (American Patchwork & Quilting, August 2017)

Using 5 x 5 inch squares known as charm packs, this book brings you 18 fab designs to quilt. Each design is beginner friendly. You can buy pre-cuts or cut your own squares. You can alter squares too. Fantastic blocks bridge the gap between traditional piecing and modern designs. Contents include fabric selection, tools, supplies and before you begin plus finishing at the end of the book. The designs include blocks made with squares, rectangles, easy corner triangles, half-square triangles, quarter square triangles and wonky designs. For each design you'll see materials, cutting, construction with diagrams and good photos. An excellent way to begin quilting or to use charm packs. (yarnsandfabrics.co.uk, 4/19/2017)

This book will certainly appeal to any scrap lover! You can use precuts or 'shop' your stash to create your own collection of five inch blocks―it is a revelation to see the variety of patterns than can be made from this starting point. The quilts progress to more complex designs, but every step of the way there are pretty photos, diagrams and instructions. It truly is a book you would want to give a beginner, but the quilts are so lovely that even more experienced quilters will want to make them. The designs are show in modern fabrics but would work equally well with a more traditional colour palette. (Down Under Quilts, 180)
