Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks are co-owners of The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan (Canada) and I have long been a fan of their patterns and kits. I love their whimsical, simple designs and had been eagerly awaiting the publication of their book. This selection of winter and Christmas quilts and decor items is fun, simple and, most important, fast. You'll be able to make holiday projects for displaying or giving in no time at all. The book includes various types of table runners, pillows and throws with a winter theme, although several projects would be suitable for any time of year simply by changing the fabric selection. I especially like the tips that are given throughout the book and the information about using wool and embroidery accents in these projects. If you're looking for simple, quick and fun projects for the upcoming winter season, this book is for you.
Okay, it's no secret. I love Martingale & Company books. But during the season leading up to the Christmas Holidays, well, I love to decorate. You could honestly sit in your craft/sewing room and decorate your whole home for the holidays by going through the projects in this book. There are pillows. Table runners. Wall hangings. Quilts. Wool. Cotton. Pieced and applique projects. Of all sizes. If you order today, you just might have some new holiday decorations just by going to your fabric closet! Trust me, if you like the holidays, you will love this book.
