Feb/Mar 2013 McCall's Quick Quilts
Yum! The Chefs at Moda's Bake Shop are at it again and Sweet Celebrations is a full serving of fun. With over 35 seasonal projects using fat quarters, charm squares, and other fabric pre-cuts, there's a project for every occasion. Let the celebrating begin!
March 2013 Australian Homespun Magazine
No—this is not a cook book, it's a book of quilting and sewing projects. If you're not familiar with the terminology that fabric manufacturer, Moda, uses, you're forgiven for feeling confused. Moda has spearheaded the marketing of a range of pre-cut fabrics in recent years, many of which are referred to with food names, such as jelly rolls (2 1/2 x 42 in strips), layer cakes (10 in squares) and honey buns (1 1/2 x 42 in strips). In keeping with the theme, they've taken to referring to quilt project instructions as recipes, quilt designers as chefs and materials lists as ingredients. This book is a collection of 30 projects all made using pre-cuts. They range from table mats, bags, wallhangings and wreaths up to bed quilts. It's a very rich resource to have on your bookshelf - there's something here for almost every occasion when you might want to present a special someone with a homemade gift, and the use of pre-cuts streamlines the process. Of course, you don't need to use pre-cuts—there's nothing stopping you from buying yardage or raiding your stash and cutting the fabric yourself. The instructions are detailed, and there is a good, clear photograph of every finished project and diagrams to illustrate steps along the way.
February/March 2013 Issue Fabrications Quilting For You
To celebrate the availability of pre-cut fabrics, this book, with more than 35 projects to sew using Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, Fat Quarters and Charm Squares, will afford you dozens of bright projects, which are so much quicker to make using the pre-cut fabrics. The projects are divided into seasonal themes, which are predominantly American, but many can be adapted for celebrations in the UK.
May/June 2013 Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting
Precut fabrics marketed under appealing names such as Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, Fat Quarters, and Charm Squares are used for 35+ special occasion projects—from quilts to bags, from pillows to aprons. The photos accompanying the step-by-step instructions make for a super pleasant book to look through and, of course, work from.

Bed quilts, gift quilts, bags, placemats, etc. make up this collection of celebration projects. The chefs have covered the whole year with something for many occasions.   The book is sectioned by holiday and time of year. I really like the graduation autograph quilt with great fabrics. Often times, I like a quilt and would like to make one just like it or from the same designer or manufacturer, but the book does not say what designer/manufacturerer was used. This book has a resource guide for the materials used in the project, which is very helpful.  While there are some cute projects in the book, it does not excite me as I expected. Great book for beginners, though.
