    Forget the borders!

    Borders – this has always been a question for any quilter. Do I or don’t I put borders on my quilt? How many, how wide or should I just forget them entirely?

    This book is all about “just forget them entirely”. With the 19 page section that begins the book, you are given all the basics you need to create a quilt. Whether you are a beginner or an expert or somewhere in between, this section will refresh your memory or help you learn things such as cutting, pinning and binding.

    The projects are divided into One-Block quilts, Two-Block quilts and what is called Outside The Block quilts. The one and two block projects are self-explanatory. The section on Outside The Block is all about quilts with different types of blocks to make up the quilt. Rectangles, squares on point which require setting triangles and applique circles will be found in this section.

    The usual things can be found in the project instructions such as a color photo of the quilt, a materials and cutting list and lots of graphics to keep you on track. There are no specific instructions for quilting the items.

    My only trouble is I don’t know when I will find time to make all the wonderful quilts in this book. Hope you do.

    Wonderful book - beautiful ideas!

    I can't decide which of these projects to work on first. They are all very pretty and look like a lot of fun to make. Directions are very clear and easy to follow.
