Small projects that are interesting but not out of reach for the beginner. Mini quilts are no larger than three feet in length or height, making them a comfortable size to try out new techniques. The book covers hand quilting and machine quilting as well as piecing, embroidery, fusing, applique and embellishing. All with detailed instructions and the basic information you will need to complete the projects. 30 projects, templates and a varied styles all add up to a lot of bang for the buck. Great pictures and easy to read format.

Quite a few of the patterns don't have the most detailed instructions, for instance one of the quilts pretty much says, cut and piece your quilt using the photograph, with no cutting instructions, etc. But it is a great book nonetheless

"Pretty Little Mini Quilts" is the latest Lark Book from the "Pretty Little..." line. These books are always little treasures that contain an eclectic assortment of whatever the "Little Book" is covering. The book itself is a comfortable to hold size of 8.24 inches X 8.25 inches (20.955cm X 20.955cm). The book's description "...more than two dozen talented designers create 31 mini quilts that look to the past as they rush forward to a fresh future...". An apt description since the books contains the best of traditional, what I like to call 'traditional with a twist, and whimsical art quilts. There really is something for everyone in this lovely little book! None of these small art works is larger than 36 inches (91.4 cm) in length or height. The basics pages covers everything that you might need or want to know about how to create your own mini masterpiece. Covering what basic sewing tools you will require (measuring tape, scissors,pins, tailor's chalk, rotary cutter and mat etc etc. All types of quilting materials (cottons, linen, fleece felts, interfacings, fusible webs) are covered as is a really comprehensive section on quilting techniques that covers both machine and hand stitching and how to build a quilt; piecing, attaching borders, appliqueing, embroidering etc. A jam packed how to section that is condensed yet very thorough. Each quilt pattern relates the things that are needed to make the quilt, the finished size, and detailed instructions for each step of the quilt journey! This is a small book that packs a lot of enjoyment between its pages. You will find yourself returning to it often for a fresh idea or a new technique. I think it would make a welcome addition to any fiber, quilt and/or textile enthusiast!
