This is a great book for the beginner. In the general instruction area, she explains a quilt sandwich, tools needed along with details about the type of sewing machine required for the projects. The instructions are written with the beginner in mind! All the projects are simply achieved when using pre-cut fabrics, especially easy for beginners. She even goes in to detail about grain lines and value. The patterns are simple and based on traditional looks that have been updated to modern colors and settings. This would be a great book for teachers with beginners in the class because it starts at the very beginning explaining in great detail, easy to understand. I would recommend this one to anyone wanting to self-teach themselves quilting. Great for your collection!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you would like to quilt but don't have time to spend hours in the
fabric store nor do you want to cut out all those pieces, then precuts
are definitely the way to go and M'Liss Rae Hawley's Precut Quilts is
the perfect book for you. Whether you're a beginner or someone
returning to quilting, she explains everything in simple detail with
easy to follow step by step directions. Wondering what precuts are?
M'Liss explains the different types so you can decide how much time you
want to spend and what size quilt you wish to make.
Although the quilt patterns are on the easier side, the basic
directions give you lots of room to create using the design of the
fabric in the precuts. Whether you like bright or bold, or calm and
subtle, the patterns in her book give you lots of room to play. I like
that she includes photos of the same quilt in different color schemes.
And the Bag of Strips Tote Project included in the book is a must!
Totes are in and this pattern is the perfect place to start.
