The projects include quilts (of course), pillows, camera case, totes, small bags, pin cushions, tea towels, pot holders and more--- so many cute patterns for folks who want to try quilting for the first time. Plus, the quilts are so inspiring that seasoned sewers will be thrilled too! I am inspired to adapt several of the patterns into other projects like table runners, seat cushions, teapot cozys and the list goes on! There is a great section of techniques and suggestions. Everything seems straight forward and instructions clear.
The fabrics used are modern and fresh, byt the designs are really at the core of the book's inspiration! I am completely ready to sift through my scraps and leftovers for smaller projects and hit the fabric stores for a regular sized quilt! A keeper for crafty folks!
susan's book delights AND inspires me. i have always enjoyed fabrics and colour/pattern arrangement, and thus the book is a joy to thumb through, but her simple instructions and clear explanations got me all excited about making. in fact, i've already started a project. i love the way log cabin is simple, which i need as a beginner, but also engaging. i like that her texts are informative but never dull. i also adore the fact that susan is a vibrant person, evident in the personal stories she weaves into her text, and her quilts reflect that. there is an enjoyable energy in her book.
it's not very often i get a book one day and the materials to dive into a craft the next.
when my dad died, and my mom and i went through his clothes, we saved a stack of his and our favourites. i knew i wanted to make a quilt as a memorial but i was nervous. after reading susan's book, im ready to make a few simple pieces with thrift shop fabrics, and then take on the box of dad's clothes with confidence.
There's a bit of history; information on how to get started and quilt-making techniques; clearly written, precise and well illustrated directions for making your own project; and plenty of extra tips such as "making it personal" or "sewing with jersey fabric".
You're bound to be inspired by the beautiful examples of both quilts and smaller, fun items like a napkin and coaster set, a camera case or various tote bags.
All in all, experienced sewer or not, this is a great book and certainly worth having in your collection.
