Ordered this little book for some quick applique patterns and was not disappointed! Each pattern piece is well drawn and easy to copy and cut. The shapes are simple but still convey the design very well without the need to be fussy cutting little pieces. This little book gets the job done with great designs and simplicity.

This is a great book. There are 7 different designs. The designs are really cute (one for Easter, one for Halloween, two for Christmas, and three general designs). I think the title "quick and easy" might not be the best title, only because they are hardly quick when you consider there are a lot of small shapes and pieces to cut out and sew on each "rug." The cutting takes a considerable amount of time. Also, if you're going to follow the designs exactly as they are in the book, it will take a while to plan out a shopping trip to get all the supplies (esp. the various colors of thread and fabric, etc.) you will need for just one rug, unless you have plenty on hand already.

I am completely new to penny rugs but dabble in nearly every craft, and I would recommend this book. The stitches and the process of making the "rugs" were all easy to learn. The stitches in the book were all new to me because I don't do much sewing, especially hand sewing, but I caught on quickly. This book will be one I will keep in my craft library because I figure I can always keep the circular patterns that came with the book as a guide to create my own designs. It's definitely a good book for the beginner.

As a Penny Rug making instructor, this is a great book to start with. Easy to follow, few supplies required and functional patterns you would like to have in your home or give as gifts!

I made my first penny rug from this book, the one on the cover. I gave it to my mother-in-law for a birthday gift and she loved it! I plan on making one I can keep now. I love working with wool felt because it goes fairly quickly (I used to cross-stitch a lot) , not nearly as time consuming as other sewing projects (quilting…). The patterns were well defined and instructions were easy to follow!

There are some patterns I can use in this book, but most are too "country" for my style. Instructions and patterns are excellent. Great for beginning felt applique projects.

These are not quick, considering the outside circles and eggs age in some cases 30 or more. There are easier and more traditional ways to finish the borders on a penny rug.
