    A reviewer

    I wrote a review recently about SIMPLE SEASON RECIPE BOX by Ms. Diehl. Now I have the book that goes with that box. (I still like my idea of using the box to cross-reference my quilt patterns as I don¿t like cooking as much as I LOVE quilting!). My point is that the book has recipes to put in the box as well as wonderful quilt patterns. The book starts with a sixteen page section on quilting basics and fabric selection. Ms. Diehl gives lots of tips for making your quilt easier. There are graphics to help visualize what is explained. The book is divided into the Seasons with three or four quilts per Season and then recipes to go with each Season as well. The quilts run from lap to table runners to bed to doll and of course, wall hangings so there are a wide variety of project sizes. The techniques include piecing, yo-yo¿s and appliqué. Each project begins with a paragraph about the project. Then a materials list is provided with a cutting list following that. Next are the assembly instructions. This includes lots of graphics to demonstrate the sewing instructions. Finally, adding the borders and suggestions on finishing --- how to quilt --- are given. Templates are included. The recipes are the kind that make me think of grandma and home cooking. Quick Cherry Crisp -- yummmmmmy ¿ homemade rolls, split pea soup just to name a few. All good eating and they go perfectly with quilts. The final page holds three paragraphs about Ms. Diehl. I always like to learn about the designers and how they got where they are today. All in all, this is a great book for all year round. Food and quilts --- what could be a better combination?
