A great compilation of designs previously published in different publications and now presented together in a new format. 11 takes on the wall quilt, designed by well-known quilt designers. These small mini quilts are quick to make. The 11 designs are varied with something to appeal to all. A variety of techniques are used such as different ways to applique, and block assembly. Some of them would translate very easily into larger designs. The finished quilts are of different sizes. Suitable for using scraps. Easy to follow and clear instructions illustrated in full colour throughout with line drawn templates included. (yarnsandfabrics.co.uk, 7/9/2017)
This book is perfect for a weekend getaway. Eleven well-known quilt designers offer varied and fun patterns for small wall hangings. Laura Wasilowski, in her usual, quirky style features a wonky, bright, log cabin pattern. Emily Cier's design uses scrappy circles of brightly coloured fabrics on a background of pale, neutral scraps. What a great excuse to go delving into your stash. Becky Goldsmith offers a cute, little quilt for a child's room featuring animals and birds. For those who like a challenge, Rebecca Bryan offers a stunning colour wheel made of brightly coloured hexagons on a white background. Any of the wall hangings would be perfect to brighten up your sewing room or give as a gift. (CQA/ACC, Autumn 2017)
There are 11 projects from different designers in this book. Wall quilts are lovely pieces of art that can brighten any room, and they are very adaptable as they can easily go on tables, trays or be used as cushion fronts. The beauty of small projects like this is that they are quick to make, yet bring lasting joy. They can be a nice companion piece to a bigger project such as a quilt, using up all those leftovers and scraps that are just too good to throw away. There are a range of techniques to try and of course, they can be made using your fabrics of choice. (Down Under Quilts, 181)

This book is a compilation of eleven different wall, or mini, quilts. Each is from a different, well known quilt designer. There are projects from Camille Roskelly, Kim Schaefer, Rebecca Bryan and Heidi Staples in the book as well as several others. Taking projects from books previously published by the designers is a genius idea as it provides a variety of styles in one book. You probably know just from reading the names above that the book contains modern and traditional projects made with a variety off techniques. I am a fan of reading quilt books (no surprise there!) but each one usually has a particular theme or style to it. With this book, the quilter can try a variety of styles and techniques. The projects are not large which means they are easily accomplished.
Well, all except one! For me the Huckleberry Quilt designed by Rebecca Bryan looks challenging and maybe out of my skill range. But this is a good thing - it further affirms the book has something for everyone from the beginner to the more experienced quilter. The fact that this riff on a color wheel requires 72 different color fabrics is enough to intimidate me. I have enough difficulty choosing color and if I had to choose 72 different solids I might go right over the edge.
Most of the projects in this book could easily be expanded to a larger size quilt if the reader wanted to make a baby or lap size quilt with the project. This further exemplifies the flexibility of the book. I really give high praise to C & T for curating this great selection of projects and publishing them in one book.
