Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
More than just the re-creation of traditional quilt block patterns, the personalized quilt is either dedicated to a friend or friends (friendship quilts) or recounts the history of a family or an individual. These three books approach the subject differently. Friendship Blocks will be of special interest to individuals and groups planning quilts to honor special people or events such as the birth of a baby, a graduation, or a marriage. The entire process of planning and completing a friendship quilt is covered, including how to make basic signature blocks (which leave ample space for the quiltmakers to sign the quilts with their names or special messages), plan and execute the hand lettering, and finally quilt and bind the quilt. Ten quilt patterns illustrate the possibilities of this type of collaborative quilt. Recommended for public library quilt collections, especially in areas where there are active quilt guilds. Create Your Family Quilt is an example of how increasingly computer-savvy quilters are using the enormous storage capacity of electronic media in connection with specialized software as an aid in designing unique quilts. The accompanying CD-ROM includes patterns for 700 traditional pieced blocks associated with all 50 states and Canada, plus appliqu patterns for symbols such as state birds and flowers. Using a mix-and-match approach, the quilter picks the elements for the quilt (a state block and colors, for example) and sets them into a predetermined quilt layout. Once the quilt design is completed, the quilter can print out a block pattern, full-sized templates, and rotary-cutting instructions for the original quilt in any size from crib to king. While the book alone is packed with interesting facts about each state of the union, installation of the user-friendly CD-ROM software is required for the actual quilt design. An excellent choice for large public libraries. In Quilted Memories, Weidman gets about as far away from a computer-generated quilt design as you can. This book has few quilt patterns, few templates, and no step-by-step anything. Instead, it consists of some 96 pages of inspiration, colorful images, and ideas for designing "story quilts" based on life experiences. Weidman's tips on drawing, choosing colors, appliqu , and the use of embellishments (such as the gorgeous buttons shown throughout the book) are reason enough to recommend the work to the creative quilter. In addition, nine small projects give the reader an opportunity to practice the author's techniques. Enthusiastically recommended for quilting collections emphasizing art quilts.
