Beautifully Done! 7 May 2010
By Christina Lane - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Beautiful photographs and beautiful quilts. This is a great book for the hesitant quilter, for someone that's wanted to try, but been too afraid to start. Brocket makes you feel at ease with just cutting into your fabric and going for it. The directions are well laid out, with "bullet points" and diagrams. She talks about her inspirations for the quilt design and fabric choices. There are just enough directions for showing you how to make the quilt, without having it be overwhelming, I recommend this to beginners and pros alike, if for no other reason than to be inspired by the beauty of the book itself.

Colorful quilts for beginners. 12 Jun 2010
By Munkee - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for a brand new quilter. The quilt patterns are very simple, consisting of squares sewn together. There is no piecing of blocks. However, because of the bright and busy fabrics used the quilts do make quite a statement. If you love Kaffe Fassett fabrics and are brand new to quilting you will enjoy this book.

Jane Brocket is down-to-earth, yet so inspired, and she is able to communicate that easily and presents a totally approachable book filled with wonderful projects. There is one to please every quiltmaker who enjoys a bit of a traditional approach.

Inspiration for New and Experienced Quilters alike 30 Sep 2013
By Hannahbelle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you are the type of quilter who likes each and every piece to be perfect, go look for a different quilt book. Jane Brocket, among other bloggers, has revitalized quilting by making it more about fabric selection, color, fun, and simplicity than about cutting each piece at a perfect angle. I am not the type of quilter who spends hours piecing a log cabin star, but I love every quilt in this book and feel like there are plenty of challenges for those of us who are newer. If you're an experienced quilter, use the book to look at Jane's amazing choices for fabric and color -- truly inspirational!

Wonderful book! 10 Jan 2014
By Beryl Tovim - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book. Takes the mystery out of precise quilting and gives photographic examples of what one can do with just squares of material.
Beautifully written. In fact I found it first in translation in French in the local library and when I realised the original was written in English I ordered it.
