Quilt Giving: 19 Simple Quilt Patterns to Make and Give
Creating a quilt is always a gift--in finding the time to enjoy your hobby, and in giving away your finished piece. In the pages of Quilt Giving, you'll find nineteen quilts that make perfect presents for yourself or someone else.
The quilt patterns in this book embrace beautiful color and sewing simplicity. You can take your time to enjoy the process and still have a quilt ready for your next baby shower or winter weekend curled up on the sofa! You'll also expand your sewing skills as you experiment with the big block conventions found in Twinkle, Map and Bloom; use easy corner triangles for simple detail in Gem, Summer and Sprinkle; or cast tradition aside and use a vertical or horizontal grid in Path, Garden and City.
I really like this book. The instructions are very clear, and they are supported by detailed illustrations. Some of the patterns require as few as three fabric choices, while others would make great scrappy quilts. I'm really looking forward to some new projects.
