Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Author Angela Yosten has put together a variety of projects for the little men in your life, with a traffic theme throughout. From the Traffic Light Wallhanging to the Speed Limit Pillow, from the Do Not Enter Messenger Bag to the Cross Guard Towels, you will surely find something to make.
Quiltmaker Magazine, July 30, 2012

It's one of the most common questions we hear about sewing projects, "Why aren't there more projects for boys?!" Our friend, Angela Yosten has come to the rescue with a new book that has 12 great projects, each with a personalized traffic sign/signal theme.
--Sew4home.com; 10/01/12

Yosten’s transporation-themed designs were inspired by her son’s love of toy cars – and the lack of quilting and sewing projects appropriate for boys. Each project uses a scrap applique technique that incorporates strips of scrap fabric (or, optionally, pre-cut strips) and fusible web. There’s plenty of variety, including home décor items as well as quilts, a Route 66-inspired T-shirt, and a sleeping bag. VERDICT Like the road signs they emulate, Yosten’s designs are bold and graphic, and projects targeted to school-age and teen boys are a rarity in the quilting world. These designs aren’t just for boys, though – the techniques and styles used could easily be adapted for a variety of modern scrap applique projects.
--Library Journal; August 2012

A perfect concept for little and big guys. Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew by Angela Yosten is full of perfect projects for big and little guys. There are 12 total – big-size quilts, pillows, shirts and even a messenger bag – all using a “traffic” theme with lots of road signs. Stop, speed limits, no u-turns, do not enter and slow are all so appropriate for fast-paced, car-loving boys of all ages. What a clever concept! Any ne mom or grandmom will enjoy using this book to make special gifts for that special guy.
--American Quilt Retailer; 11/1/12
