September/October 2014 You will be inspired when you see the variety of designs and fabrics you can combine to make irresistible children's quilts. Fun and whimsical, warm and cuddly, or sweet as can be, there is a design in this book that will fit the personality of your child or grandchild to the tee. Make a quilt for each child, or create just for the joy of giving to your favourite fund-raising charity. Either way, both you and the children will have an everlasting memory of the wonderful quilt you created. Children will love the quilts made from this book. Whimsical themed fabrics with animals, race cars, bugs and colourful shapes will intrigue and delight each child who receives the quilt. Sized just right for child's beds, cribs and your favourite rocking chair, you will see the happiness in their eyes when you wrap them up in these special quilts. Written for both beginner and experienced quilters, the book features full colour photos, step-by-step instructions and drawing that will guide you through each step of the quilting process. * Workbox * Make quilts for kids from a gift for a newborn to toddlers. These designs can be made in a day. The sampler quilt is a beginner's project using many of the blocks in the book in one design. You could just as easily keep repeating certain blocks or add more blocks that you know to vary the design. Baby Blocks is an even simpler beginner's quilt, Bugs is similar and Baby Bricks is simple enough and very effective. Here's My Heart is classed as beginner's but with its two-blocks plus borders, I thought that this on was moving up to an intermediate skill level. Both this, Nine-Patch and Critters use triangles. Chevron is another I thought would be better classed as intermediate. It is probably my favourite quilt in the book, but also seems aimed at a much older teenager, if not adult. Check This, and Let's Go are two more beginner's quilts. Call of the Wild is based on strip blocks alternating with squares. Around The Block is also an effective way of using up strips. The instructions are clear, with great photos of the finished quilts and step-by-step line drawings of construction. Great ideas, adaptable designs and lots of fun. * yarnsandfabrics.co.uk *

If you make quilts for children's charities (Linus, Quilts for Kids) this is the only book you will ever have to have. If you have children or there are children in your family or circle of friends any one of these would be truly loved by that child. I highly recommend this book, giving it 5 stars (I rarely rate any product that high). It is going on my reference shelf where I can get to it easily.
