I am relatively new to quilting and this is the best book I have bought so far. The first thing I love about the book is that it is packed full of colourful, modern and quirky designs. The book contains 35 projects including quilts, bags, aprons, place mats, bags and cushions. I love the beautiful patchwork quilt on the cover, the bags and a tablecloth made from vintage tea towels. The other thing I absolutely love about this book is that the projects are easy to follow. I often get confused by the instructions and diagrams in many craft books. The instructions are simple and to the point and the diagrams are colourful and easy to follow. I especially liked the section on how to do different types of binding. I would particularly recommend this book to any beginner looking for modern and fresh designs.

This is a lovely book, with lots of projects that I will definitely want to make. There are traditional quilts to make, but some more unusual ones, I particularly like the vintage embroidered quilt, which makes use of embroidered traycloths and the like. There are predictable bags etc, but the book is full of more unusual projects too, such as the cake tea cozy which also incorporates some free machine embroidery, I also love the patchwork picture. I really like this book, it is pretty to look at as well as being full of nice things you will want to make. It probably won't stretch the more advanced quilter, but will provide inspiration for beginners to intermediate level sewers. Templates all need enlarging which may irritate some. All in all a great book though, and lovely to browse if you're not in the mood for actually picking up your needle!

This is a lovely well thought out and bright book on patchwork and quilting, which also includes applique and embroidery. Good instruction and a great place to start for the beginner. The retro/modern feel may well appeal to teenagers starting out too as there is nothing heavy and old fashioned about the projects. Definitely one of my favourites.

Too often you feel let down by books that have a colourful front cover and promises of practical projects. This one does not disappoint. It is a fantastic book with lovely, bright illustrations throughout as well as precise instructions for making the some very useful items. It has inspired me to have a go at all 35 projects.

I found this book very informative and the instructions were easy to understand. The designs were good and the measurement for each design patch excellent.

I have many sewing books (have a bit of an obsession really) but this book has still inspired me to attempt a couple of the projects inside. The photographs inside are beautiful and this combined wiht the authors writing style about ignoring people who claim ''you shouldn't do it like that!'' This is one of the reasons that i have steered clear from quilting but still love the books. However, i have been to my local sewing shop and purchased a walking foot, 1/4'' foot and other bits and pieces so here goes...

Off to my sewing room!

Very good book borrowed from library to start with but found so many things to make in it that I had to buy it for myself.
I would recommend this book to all my friends who enjoy quilting and patchwork or just like making things .

I have only recently started doing patchwork and quilting and this book is stuffed full of inspiration and useful information. I'm still at the gathering fabrics together stage but fully intend to make some items from the book. My only complaint and the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that you need to have access to a photocopier that enlarges for some of the templates at the back of the book. I always find this really annoying with either books or magazines when I am all enthused to start a project and then need to go hunt out somewhere to have the pattern enlarged before I can get started. This is a fault of many sewing books, however, not just this one, and overall I still love the book and think it well worth the money.
