Editorial Reviews

Review

“Adams, author of the popular quilting blog QuiltDad.com, curates a collection of holiday-inspired patchwork projects, many from other big names in the quilting blogosphere. With a different choice of fabric, most of the projects wouldn't read 'holiday' at all, such as the Dresden-plate inspired baby quilt, the improvisational log cabin quilt, or the drawstring gift bags. Though some of the projects have been done to death--most quilters have seen far too many variations on patchwork bunting-- there's enough originality here to make it a worthwhile purchase.VERDICT: The emphasis is on holiday-themed modern quilting, but the projects in this book will also appeal to quilters who prefer traditional styles. “ --Library Journal
 
“I really appreciate the variety of projects included in Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays. I like that there are projects of every size, whether you are interested in creating something larger like a baby quilt or something smaller like a patchwork ornament. The smaller projects are noted in the Table of Contents with a green *mini project* next to the title. If you plan on making Christmas patchwork projects, Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays: 30+ Seasonal Patchwork Projects to Piece, Stitch, and Love is definitely the book you need.” --BlogCritics.org
 
“...Too cute to resist! This book is jam packed with quilts, table settings, ornaments, and gifts galore. With over 30 sure-to-delight projects, there is something for everyone on your gift list—even you.” —McCall's Quick Quilts

I got this book for myself and one copy to give away. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the projects in it. I've already made two projects and have plans to make several more. The photos are pretty and inspirational, and the projects are unique. The only drawback, which I seem to find in a lot of sewing books, is that some of the templates have to be enlarged, which costs a lot at Staples. I don't mind so much, but I wish there was a separate tear out section of templates and patterns in books like these. I'd be willing to pay a few bucks more for the book instead of each time I need something enlarged at Staples.

I love adding patchwork to my projects, so any book that encourages patchwork is a win for me! There are tons of projects in this book, ranging from home decor, quilts, gifts and ornaments too! So even if you only have a little time to dedicate to holiday sewing, you'll find something in this book!

Eye-catching layout, clear instructions, and simply a great variety of beautiful, approachable projects!

I've been a huge fan of patchwork my whole life, I love all of the colors and patterns in it and I also appreciate the way it allows for using even the small scraps from my scrap pile. I also adore Christmas, so when I saw a new holiday patchwork craft book, I couldn't wait to see everything it had to offer. I found it to be full of beautiful projects to craft for the holidays and the whole book just shines with a fresh, modern patchwork look, with bright, vivid colors and updated quilting ideas.

I was delighted by the range of the projects in Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays. Of course there were quilts, but there were also many other types of holiday decorations and treats, like toys, an advent calendar, bunting, tree skirts, pillows, stockings and more. There were also five "mini projects", all for ornaments, which are perfect for me to stick in my purse and work on when waiting for appointments.

When I was trying to decide what to make first, the Milk and Cookie Mats really caught my eye, with its green triangle stacked tree and festive red border. It really didn't take much time at all, maybe a couple of hours and I am a novice quilter. It's the perfect thing to put milk and cookies on for Santa (plus some carrots for the reindeer!). I can't wait to make the adorable Stuffed Elves from Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays next, they are so cute!

Don't be fooled by the cover! This adorable book features projects aside from Christmas! It is a great book filled with ideas and projects for gift giving and decorating the home throughout the year. I have to admit that I purchased this book for the purpose of finding Christmas themed projects and was thrilled upon receipt to find even more than I'd hoped for!

Of the 30 plus projects and various techniques, the ones that I cannot wait to dive into (got to get started now!) are: 'Read Between the Lines' pillows, using strips and squares to spell out words of your choice, (a construction chart is given for each letter of the alphabet); reverse applique pillows; patchwork ornaments, (One of my favorite gifts to give each year. Use them to adorn packages!); insulated table runner; milk and cookie mats, (on the cover); gift card holder ornaments, (once the card is removed it still has a purpose!); drawstring wine bag; small notebook cover, (perfect to carry in your purse); Antarctic pillows, (whimsical penguins and polar bear); appliqued tea towels, (adorned with sweet ric-rack); patchwork cover for a body pillow; and three quilts! There are projects featuring Autumn, Valentine's Day, birthdays, bags, non-holiday altogether, dolls, and bunting to spell out whatever you choose. With the exception of the designs featuring typical holiday icons, changing the fabric colors will serve to make the projects "holiday neutral."

John Q. Adams, who compiled the designs, gives instructions in the front of the book in a friendly conversational manner. He begins with "the basics," here he explains fabric selection, choosing color and print scale, and explains cuts/measurements.

What a great book! There's a wide variety of projects for beginners on up, and while the theme focuses on holiday sewing there are many things that are appropriate year round with the use of non-holiday fabrics. The patchwork notebook holder was a fun back to school gift for my niece when I used her college colors/fabrics. In the future, I could imagine making the "Read Between the Lines" pillow as a wedding gift, using the alphabet chart to spell out the family name instead of a holiday greeting. The book is filled with colorful gift ideas and inspiration. Wonderful addition to my sewing bookshelf!

One specific project prompted me to purchase this book, but after receiving it, I found plenty more to create for holidays for my own home and to give as gifts. Directions and photos are clear for even a beginner, which I'm not, but do appreciate. It's a great way to use up scrap holiday fabrics!

I loved looking through this book. It is full of beautiful projects for different seasons, using very pretty fabric choices. Some of the projects are a bit involved, but none of them are terribly complicated.
