There are some super fresh and modern gift ideas in this title, which use a combination of patchwork, quilting, appliqué, embroidery and simple sewing. The book is a joint collaboration from a group of respected designers and the beauty is that the projects are all stunning and achievable items to make. For me the winners would have to include the Zippered Dresden Pouch by Elizabeth Dackson, the delightfully embroidered Sweet Bird Drawstring Bag (for its charming folk art appeal) by Gail Pan, and the Artist's Sketchbook Cover and Pencil Pouch by Adrienne Smitke, but there are other interesting ideas such as a fabric backgammon set and a casserole carrier. The range of items gives this book an edge over many handmade gift titles and I'd be delighted to give or receive any of the projects contained within its pages!

Get 25 fresh handmade gift ideas utilizing quilting cotton, oilcloth, felt, and wool. Projects include a pencil case and coordinating sketchbook cover, knitting needle case, sewing kit in a jar, and pillows with bright pops of color. --Quilts and More, Spring 2014
What is different about this book is that there are no quilts in it! Sorry! However, this book is a treasure trove of 25 small sewing projects - some are quilted. There are patterns and detailed directions for items such as a pencil case, knitting needle case, makeup bag, aprons, pin cushions, pillow, ipad case and more. You are bound to find something for everyone on your gift list. I would like a few of these items for myself! When you consider the cost of individual patterns these days, this book is a real deal. I just took a scrap-eater class this weekend and this book has given me many ideas as to what I might do with the new blocks I created. --Canadian Quilter Magazine, Summer 2014
