If you own a beach house, have decorated parts of your home in a coastal theme or simply love the beach, this book will be a real treasure. There are a generous 25 projects between the covers, all made with a "seaside" theme. They include cushions, quilts, softies, a bag and a hat, made with a variety of techniques: applique, hand and machine embroidery, garment sewing and quilting among them. Twenty-two different designers have contributed projects, which has resulted in a spectrum of styles, colours and materials. We'll admit that our favorites were the seahorse, rainbow fish and hermit crab softies, and the roomy beach bag that has zippered pockets, drawstring closure, adjustable shoulder strap and carry handle. The instructions seem quite detailed, but there aren't many diagrams so visual learners are relatively straightforward so we don't think you'll encounter too many difficulties.
(Australian Homespun Magazine, no.108 vol.13 no.5)
Seaside Home is a compilation of quilts, softies, embroidery, appliqué and decorative crafts, perfect for a nautical look for any home. There are several great quilt designs including Deep water, pebble stack quilted wall hanging and my favourite Porthole Baby Quilt. The book also has a whale embroidered cushion, sailboat cushion, crab napkin wraps and some nautical bunting, a perfect summer project to make with children. There are lots of appliqué projects, quite a few seaside softies, all perfect smaller projects. The book covers all abilities, beautifully laid out with full size patterns. So no trips to enlarge patterns – perfect for a spur of the moment make! So if you are looking for a book with a mixture of craft projects not just quilts this is a great place to start.

Sea creatures and sailboats set sail in a nautical-theme project book. A stuffed ball, sea horse, mermaid, and several colorful fish team up with bags, pillows, garlands, and quilts to round out the 25 projects offered from whimsical designers. (Quilts & More, 5/1/13)
