Overview

What's great about this book is that the author rates each project so you know ahead of time whether you'll be able to cuddle up under your creation in no time or if you're in for a challenge. The illustrated instructions and the examples of finished products show the variety of colors and patterns that can be used in quilt making.

Insightful commentary about the Victorian quilt designs knits contemporary sewers to the artisans of the past. The tips, meanwhile, explain ways to conserve your resources - "this makes an excellent scrap quilt," the author states in one instance - and create aesthetically pleasing quilts. You can choose from designs like Garrett Window, Double Pinwheel, Roman Candle, and Showoff Pineapple that fall into categories like Patriotic and Cabins. In all, there are more than 60 full-size block and border designs.

If you enjoyed sewing these designs, you may also enjoy Josie Davis' Teach Yourself Cloth Dollmaking.
