Meet the Author

Karla Alexander lives in Salem, Oregon, in a two-story 1950s house where her studio is just outside the breezeway. The household includes her husband, Don, and the studio dog, Lucy.

Karla has written several books on the art of quiltmaking. She also has a pattern line under the name Saginaw Street Quilts and she is a designer for Creative Grids Rulers. As the years have rolled by, she has watched, enjoyed, and been intrigued by the changes in the quilt industry and has always found her niche there, one way or another. Karla is fascinated and inspired by the patterns found in everyday life--baskets, freeways, the view from an airplane window, doorframes, you name it. The patterns she sees are often reinvented as quilts or provide the springboard for many of her designs.

As a teacher, Karla enjoys immersing herself among her students, knowing there is a lot to be learned from each one of them as well.

    Quick and Easy Baby Quilts

    Baby Wraps by Karla Alexander is a perfect book for beginning quilters. With the exception of a few of the appliqué designs, all of the patterns would be suitable for a new quilter or for a more advanced quilter looking for a cute and easy pattern for children. There is a Quiltmaking Basics section that covers everything from tools and supplies, strip cutting, and fusible appliqué, to the assembling and finishing with the quilting and binding. There are also hints on choosing the perfect fabric for each design. I found two of the eight patterns that I would like to make, Fly Away with dragonflies and Baby's Patchwork. Both are easy patterns with appliqué on one and simple patchwork on the other. Several of the patchwork designs look more complicated, but the design is simply due to block placement. While the quilts are simple, some of the appliqué pieces are small and may prove to be a little more difficult. Learning to quilt is not difficult, and I would recommend this book as a good start in that learning process.

    A reviewer

    Our guild, One Stitch at a Time, is always looking for quick, cuddly baby quilts as we make them for Love and Hugs (seriously ill children 0 ¿ 18 years of age). BABY WRAPS is just such book. There are eight quilts patterns, each quick and easy to make. The smallest is 34 x 37 inches (approximately) and the largest 43 x 52 inches. The most difficult thing about making these quilts is the appliqué. Otherwise, they are made with square, strips and triangle blocks. If you are not a quilter that likes/does appliqué, then look for fabric that already has the pattern on it. Each project has a full color photo of the finished quilt plus its finished size and finished block size. A sentence or two is written about the quilt and then a paragraph is provided about how to choose the fabric. A materials and cutting list are found next and then the directions for making the blocks. All is written in a clear, easy to understand fashion. Assembling the quilt top, adding borders and finishing the quilt directions are also provided. All appliqué templates are included at full size so there is no need to run out to the copier shop before beginning your quilt. The final page provides a bit of information about the author which I always love to read and find out how the got to be a published author/quilt maker. If you are looking for a quilt for your next child/grandchild, BABY WRAPS is a great book to have.
