Editorial Reviews

4/29/14 Down Under Quilts Magazine
Sherri McConnell brings together a collection of 18 home accessories and charming quilts, combining both classic and newer quilting styles. She offers updates on traditional blocks and is a font of knowledge on new fabrics and how to include prints within your projects. There is a great mix of large and small quilts to try your hand at, as well as pillows and table runners.
June 2014 Popular Patchwork Magazine
Sherri McConnell has delved into her personal family history of quilting and explored the techniques, fabrics and designs her relatives used to produce new takes with her own spin. The resulting book and the quilts featured within it are both clearly labours of love. The quilt that inspired the book, a Bear Paw design in appealing bright colours, is a riff on a quilt made by the author’s great-great-grandmother—its contemporary appeal certainly illustrates that good design never truly goes out of fashion. But the book is far more than a collection of excellent quilting designs; the author treats us to an interesting examination of her inspirations which are sure to strike a chord with most of us, and even an insight into her own studio space. It’s hard not to be swept along by Sherri’s passion for her quilting and the stories her family quilts tell. This inspiring and effusive book is a pleasure: we loved the kitchen sink quilt so much that we’ve featured it in this month’s magazine.
