    Utterly Delightful and Refreshing!

    I could use many words as descriptors about this book. Delightful, refreshing, enchanting , appealing - one of the best little quilt books I have come across in a long while. I was not sure that I would be the best reviewer for this book because I don't make a lot of baby quilts any more. Boy! Am I ever glad I decided to have a look! This is one of those books that screams originality. The patterns are simple - and simple is a favorite with me - but each quilt also features the addition of something that makes the quilt special, endearing and enchanting.

    Looking at the table of 'contents' section tells you that these quilts are just plain fun. The beginning of the book focuses on a very well thought out 'quilting basics' section. The book is also peppered with great short-cut ideas. A combination of captivating hand drawn images as well as photographs makes reading the directions, for the 'basics' as well as for the quilts totally enjoyable. Quilt directions are beautifully done - exemplars of the quilts are shown in sketches as well as photographs.

    The book contains 12 simple quilt designs - each of which has an added, endearing, element. Folk artsy, colorful, embroidered and unique additions to each design makes these simple quilts stand out. The ideas are, of course, great for a child - but also for the adults in the crowd who look for a touch on whimsy in everything! The designs are great for beginner's, especially with the wonderful 'basics' chapter to guide them, but also would be winner's for adults as well.

    There are also lots of tips and tricks for applique, embroidery, quilting, bindings and how to add fun elements like small pockets.

    This book makes me smile. It makes me want to put more fun back into my quilting. I have always thought that rules are made to be fiddled with (once you know the basics anyway) and this book , I think, proves me right. This is one book that will please quilters of all ages - and I am sure that if you buy it - you will find yourself smiling too!

    So Glad I Found It!

    I looked through this book in the store, but being a novice quilter I liked the cute ideas but wasn't sure I could do them. I took some notes about one of the quilts and made a baby quilt at home from it. Not only did it turn out fantastic I went back to buy the book for more ideas. Now I can't wait to make more quilts- especially for three pregnant friends!! My quilt was so easy to make but it didn't look like it came from a novice!

    Fresh Ideas!

    as a self-taught, novice quilter, i was a bit hesitant to pick up this book. i didn't buy it the first few times i eyed it in the store, but when i finally did, i was so glad to have it home to inspire me! the quilts in this book are so cute, fresh, and modern, yet classicly "baby" and sure to be treasured keepsakes. i pick this one up when i need some inspiration... and end up putting it down not knowing which one to do first! i love this collection! it has plenty pictures and drawings to help you along your way and even suggests ways to make the quilt your own. so many fun projects await you!
