Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a book of pint-size quilts using reproduction fabrics. Of course, you could always update them and use brighter, newer fabric. After all, it is your quilt. There are 16 patterns and the book starts out with a tips and tricks section. The patterns include flying geese, pinwheels, hexagons, orange peels, window panes and disappearing 4-patch, among a few more. There is straight piecing and applique. The instructions include the name of the pattern, the finished size of the block and the project and a color photo. There is something about the pattern on the left edge of the page with the material and cutting lists. Graphics and easy to follow written words complete the pattern. The quilting design is included and a URL is given if you want other ideas. At the end of the book is a 3-page section on quilting basics and a paragraph about the author.
