Overview

Quick Kids' Quilts is stuffed full of punchy, bright designs guaranteed to liven up any child's room. The book covers projects for babies, toddlers, and older boys and girls and the different themes capture the imagination and allow for a variety of tastes and functions. Transform or adapt the decorative scheme already in place with a colorful new quilt thrown over the bed and add accessories, such as coordinating cushions and wall hangings, to complete the look.

Making quilts is relatively simple and only a few specialist items of equipment are needed to start. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced needleworker, the comprehensive, clearly illustrated instructions that accompany each design make the projects simple and easy to do. Variations in texture and color can be introduced with appliqué, decorative stitching, or different weights of wadding. Advice on the best material and tools to use and a summary of the essential practical skills provide all of the necessary information to enable you to produce professional looking finished articles.

The great thing about the patterns is that they can all be achieved in a few days, so you can create quick quilts to suit a wide range of changing tastes and rooms.
