Beautifully written and charmingly hand illustrated. [Little bits quilting bee] begins with a look at the community aspect of quilting, from quilting bees and swaps to guilds and charity quilts. ...

The hot air balloon close up is just awful...her seams do not nest, distorted and 1/4"apart. Now, I am not the super-experiences quilter but making charm square seams meet, is not THAT difficult if you cut and sew precisely. Since she used mostly pre-cuts throughout her book, cutting wasn't the issue, but rather inaccurate seams or seam allowances. Or maybe she just didn't care for matching seams? Which, as a reader, I find offending because it not only suggests a lack of appreciation for your reader, but also that the author was hurrying through her projects to meet some sort of deadline.
Since I couldn't believe any quilter would proudly display mismatched seams, I kept looking through the rest of her projects...somebody please show Ricketson how to piece precisely...it's an eyesore!
Ok, before anybody goes off on my review, I realize this is my personal preference. Perhaps some people could not care less about matching seams? Well, I am not one of them. Anybody can sew a 3x3 without matching seams, but making sure they match requires pressing, nesting or careful pinning and precision. Unfortunately, this book-again in my opinion-lacks innovation and careful execution of the projects.
I didn't particularly care for the drawing diagrams either and her intro seemed sort of redundant too. Nothing out of the ordinary n my opinion.
The designer shows us unusual yet striking ways to combine really amazing prints in sort of different ways.
I just received my copy and I am still pouring over the various quilts and trying to decide which one I will begin first.
This just might be the most difficult thing about this book...actually choosing which one to make first.
