There are a couple of quilts in the book that I just shook my head at: A wonky Irish Chain made with multiple wonky pieces that is labeled for a beginner; and a wonky Dresden plate made with sharp angles. These two quilts seem to be more work than the original patterns, but if you are going for a more artsy style, some of these quilts are for you.
Though Quilt Remix gives instructions on all of the quilting steps, I would not recommend this book for a new, beginning quilter. A quilter that is ready for a little challenge and some interesting effects will really enjoy this book!
The book has 10 patterns based on traditional favorites. They are broken up by skill level and the book goes from easy to hard. Each pattern is shown in 2 color ways as well as all the math is provided for crib to queen size for most of the designs. I love that the categories are called Baby Steps, Walk in the Park, and Walking Uphill... Both Ways... In the Snow. The last one is very fitting for today since we got hit with quite the snow storm here in Philadelphia last night. One of my favorite patterns in the book is Storm at Sea. Check out the photos below to see how different it looks in fabric by Fig Tree vs. Tula Pink! Other favorites... Trip Around the World, Irish Chain, & Pinwheel. My #1 favorite from the book has to be Pinwheel. In general I don't make pinwheel blocks but this layout really attracted me to them. I couldn't resit any longer & started making pinwheel blocks yesterday. Emily's chart makes it easy to cut the right number of pieces for the quilt in 4 sizes.Read more ›
I found the cutting instructions to be clear once I read them a couple of times (I'd never encountered the first-cut-second-cut style of instructions before). The book provides instructions for both yardage and precuts, which I really liked since I don't usually buy precuts.
I've made two of the easy quilts from the book so far (the log cabin and pinwheels ones). I love them! The really advanced ones look amazing, and one day when I have the energy to cut eleventy jillion pieces, I'll try to make them. :>

I'm not sure what I liked about this book when I ordered it, because I was disappointed in it when I received it. I'm not sure I'll every try any of the quilts in it.Published on May 19, 2014 by dixiepeach
I liked this book for putting a new spin on traditional quilting blocks. Keep my interest and was well laid-out. Instructions and templates were clear and useful.Published on May 18, 2014 by pjad
