Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Are you ready for a triangle extravaganza? Just when you thought you had seen it all as far as the triangle is concerned, up pops another book with even more ideas for the use of the humble triangle. This book contains 11 deceptively easy quilts featuring stars, daisies and pinwheels, all with full instructions on how to create complex-looking designs for any size quilt by combining simple shapes like triangles and diamonds. There are also a number of skill-building techniques from strip piecing to the dreaded Y-seam, so here is a good opportunity to extend your repertoire.
--Jennifer Trollope, Fabrications Quilting for You; 06/26/12

Barbara has really done it again! I enjoyed her first book, Star Struck Quilts, which focused on the eight-pointed Lone Star with numerous attractive variations. She continues her exploration of geometric designs using triangles in another well-written and well-illustrated book,Simply Triangles from C&T Publishing. As the subtitle suggests, the author provides projects using triangles to make stars, daisies (with some clever machine appliqué), and tessellating pinwheels. Simply Triangles has many valuable quilt book features. Basic quilting supplies are sufficient for the projects using the provided templates, or two specialty tools that many quilters already own. Detailed instructions for increasingly complex projects include: hints for fabric selection, color value placement, marking, pinning, piecing and pressing. Especially helpful are step-by-step photographs and illustrations for the often dreaded Y-seam and mitered corners. Quilting design suggestions for each project include close-up shots of the author’s lovely quilting in finished quilts. Barbara Cline’s Simply Triangles is an excellent addition to any quilter’s library as a skill-building resource and source of inspiration for future projects. I am eager to try her method of overlaying netting to add a three-dimensional effect. Although not abook for novice quilters, I would highly recommend this book to all quilters who want to expand their piecing skills, experiment with color values, and make fascinating quilts with a strong geometric statement.
