Reviews

September 2017

Any book with two authors is likely to bring about an interesting amalgamation of styles. Sara favours scrap piecing while Marci is all about strip cutting so, between the two of them, there are some great combinations to find here in each of 20 projects featured. A quick flick through the books images made me home-in immediately on the Sails quilt, which was made by Sara and quilted by Pam. It's made up of a full assortment of solids 'all combining to create sunshine, sky, red sails [and] the colour of mountains'. All sounded right up my street! It's made up of triangle halves and gets distinctive appeal from the colour-value placement, which is handily described in the section on Fabrics in one of the opening chapters. The instructions run to three pages and paragraphs are economical rather than overly descriptiv, but there is a bit of cross-referencing to chapters on technique if needed. The idea of this book was to take classic patterns such as Trip Around the World, Grandmother's Flower Garden and Thousand Pyramids and build on the techniques using tools, techniques and myraid of fabric choices that are now available. The author's hope that the reader's choice of colour texture and pattern will change a classically based pattern into a new design. Sara's talents lie in establishing the 'bones' of the quilt (or underlying structure of the pattern) whilst Marci likes to figure out the best way of crafting the designs - and not necessarily the quickest way, as is the case with charm quilts, which hinge on individual cutting techniques and meditative qualities of the process. This is a grat entry level book for those who are keen to experiment with colour.

It's made up of a full assortment of solids 'all combining to create sunshine, sky, red sails [and] the colour of mountains'. All sounded right up my street!

New angles on classic quilt designs. Simple patterns and sewing that beginners can do. Strip-piece or strip-cut. Full-size templates and great colour make eye-catching quilts. It all looks so complicated, the kind of complex quilts beginners yearn to make. This book makes it all so achievable. It includes the example of tradition with a new process, classic design, fabrics, tools, basics. There are then 20 projects using triangles, half-hexagons, diamonds and more. Great instructions, diagrams and photos are included plus lots of tips on cutting and templates are at the back of the book. I love the Thousand Pyramids, Fantasy and Reflections designs.
