Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
More for Muppet lovers than quilt aficionados, this volume pictures quilts made by artists and craftspeople who work on Muppet puppets rather than by professional quilters, and many of the quilts in the book's Muppet quilts gallery were made as baby blankets for the Muppet Workshop's friends and family. Useful for fans who want to make similar quilts based on Henson's characters, the book features full-sized, color patterns and step-by-step instructions for 15 different character quilt blocks, which can be mixed and matched. Quilting expertise is not required, as the characters may be fused rather than appliqued (sewn) onto each block. Nonquilters will enjoy seeing the imaginative quilts and reading the background information for each creation. A good choice for all public libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
