Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Who's Jinny Beyer, and why should we care? In the wake of Martha Stewart's phenomenally successful empire, homemaking wanna-bes are imitating many of her moves. Yet Beyer seems to be the real thing, without much pretense--and laden with talent. Her skills are highlighted here in time for the holidays not only in quilts but also in knitted sweaters, fabricated natural wreaths, and stitched accessories and decorations. Each of the more than 50 projects features color photographs and illustrations, as well as an indication of skill level. (Unfortunately, most are geared to intermediate or close-to-professional crafters.) Traditional patterns, such as flying geese and crazy quilting, are repeated in different media.
