Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is divided into areas of the home. There are sections for the living, dining and bedrooms including one especially for a boy and a girl. And, of course, we can’t forget the baby’s room and toys. Finally, a section for a picnic quilt and a market tote. The book begins with a five-page section on how-to in case you need a refresher or are a brand new sewer. Then you find the sections mentioned above. The pattern includes the name of the project, the size and a paragraph about it. The materials and cutting lists follow and read easily. Tips to help make creating the project easier are found in a bordered box. Plenty of photos and graphics help you make sure you are sewing the right pieces together. The quilting to finish the project is left up to you. Any templates needed are at full size. Pillows, totes, quilts, place mats, a play mat and a complete crib ensemble of sheet, skirt and bumper are the items you can create with this book. The final page is a very short bio about the author.
