Take Home Take 5! What's great about Kathy Brown's Take 5, isn't that you can make a quilt with just 5 fabrics, but it's her whole message behind her Take 5 philosophy: picking and choosing fabrics doesn't have to be mind numbingly frustrating and cutting them doesn't have to be a chore. She's broken down her Take 5 methodology into an easy to follow steps of (1) finding a fabric you love, (2) getting the supporting fabrics, (3) cutting them quickly (she shows you how), (4) organizing them (again, shows you how!) and (5) then getting to the fun part - sewing! Kathy breaks this down for you beautifully - and on each quilt. The quilts themselves are impressively simple - and simply gorgeous. The colors, textures, and designs are all outstanding choices - "Plays Fair and Square" is an great example of a deceptively simple quilt with on-point squares and tons of areas to show off your fabric choices as well as your quilting! "Across the Miles" leaves you mouth watering for a million different fabric choices - and the fabric cutting is so simple! All the pictures are full color and just lovely. The instructions are well thought out and thorough (I thought for a moment she was having me make two extra blocks in Crosses the Line - but nope, she addresses it!). All the quilts can be done by a beginner, although the book does assume a basic knowledge of quilting. More advanced quilters will find a great abundance of quick weekend quilts. Take 5 will have you looking at fabric in a whole new way and, with any luck, you'll never be frustrated picking out your fabric again! Truly a delightful book to have in your quilting library.
