    Great projects and inspiration

    The projects in this book are beautifully displayed and explained thoroughly. There is a complete materials list and clear instructions with simple illustrations that are easy to follow. Projects are suitable for hand or machine sewing, and fabrics used in the examples are such that they inspire you to come up with your own variations without feeling compelled to create a copy of the sample.

    lovely little quilting book

    Suzuko Koseki's Natural Patchwork: 26 Stylish Projects Inspired by Flowers, Fabric, and Home (Make Good: Crafts + Life) is a beautifully photographed book with charming quilted country items for household use. The projects are simple and the directions give even beginning quilters adequate instruction. Further discussion of various quilting techniques may help the novice get started quilting. While the projects are nothing new, they may prove to be an inspiration to someone wanting to begin quilting. Regardless, I can't turn down flipping through lovely photographs of quilts.

    Disclaimer: A complimentary copy of the book was provided by the publisher.
