First off, the organization of the book is joyfully helpful. The chapters are ordered by block style or technique, and each chapter has 2 projects. Feel like working on equilateral triangles this weekend? Go to that chapter to find the colorful “Pond Ripples Pillow” (22.5” square).
Do you want to understand how English paper piecing differs from foundation paper piecing? There’s a chapter for each. Make the mod “Pentagon Bangles Table Runner” (18.5”x45.5”) or the retro “All About Hex Pillow” (22.5”) the English way. The larger photo on the cover is one of my favorites. Made via foundation paper piecing, “Sparkles Mini Quilt” (20.5” square) uses neutrals and funky prints to make octagons morph into stars and windmills.
There’s a fun imagination behind each project, which you can make your own with your own pre-cuts and bits. Sizes are mostly on the small side – 18.5” to 24.5” along their longest dimension. The largest are three quilts that are each 60.5” square. Mini-quilts predominate, but there are also table runners and pillows.
You might want to know that the templates provided for 5 projects will require enlarging. There are 1” squares that will let you know when you have the enlargement correct. But the process may be unwieldy for some folks, and you might end up at your local copy store. (Make sure to show them the copyright page.) For instance, one pattern is shown reduced to 25% and requires a 400% enlargement, which equates to 5 times the original. All the others go from 50% to 200%, which is doable if you enlarge each by cutting the patterns into their constituent pieces.
Lovely, fresh, and fun patterns from this Australian professional.
