Meet the Author

Mary Hickey has been an influential leader in the quilting world for more than 30 years. She continually works to bring new techniques, designs, and ideas to quiltmaking, and she has taught and traveled around the world to teach her quiltmaking techniques. She has also made appearances on HGTV's Simply Quilts.

Mary's primary goal in designing, writing, and teaching is always the same; to design and create projects and write instructions that enable quiltmakers to create beautiful, traditional quilts that look complex, artistic, and stunning but that are easy to make.

    Easy pieces to work with

    I need 36 hours in one day to work on all the quilts in this book that I want to make. Oh where do I start? With 17 quilts, it will be hard to pick one to start with.

    A 16-page section on the basics of quilting begins the book. Things like what foot to use, how to do appliqué, binding and tags are among the hints and how-to's you will find here. Each project begins with a paragraph about the quilts followed by a material and cutting list. A page is devoted to a photo of the finished quilt and the block and finished quilt size are also given.

    Making the blocks is explained next and graphics help to show what is being sewn. Finishing the quilts is pretty much left up to your individual tastes and desires but the area in the basics sections on preparing to quilt gives a fair overview of what to do.

    Between the dominoes, tents, airplanes, kittens, shoes and rainbows - to name a few - I will be in 7th Heaven making quilts for the next few months! There is even a basket pattern that is made from strips so no curves to deal with. Plus the rest are made with strips and triangles - no difficult or odd pieces unless you count appliqué figures.

    Either way, these quilts are perfect for beginners or a guild making charity quilts. I will be sure to take my copy to my guild.
