There's something for every taste: aprons and potholders, picnic placemats and casserole covers, seat cushions and pinwheel pillows, a fun fleece scarf and a fuzzy baby blanket. The patterns are included, there's general information on the craft for beginners, and the level ranges from very simple to moderately advanced, so almost anyone can join in the quilting fun.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many quilters make sample quilt blocks or lay aside blocks that don't quite fit into their current quilt project and never end up beig used. Phillips has assembled a collection of some 35 colorful projects for just such spare blocks. For those quilters whose leftover blocks are not of the size the instructions specify, she includes patterns for the blocks used in each project. Many of the finished pieces, such as the canvas tote bag and the director's chair back, are embellished with store-bought items. The patterns range from easy to moderately challenging and include a fun fleece scarf, a decorative toaster cover, and a quilter's tool bag. A popular addition to public library quilting collections.
