I don't feel the love for Liberty in this book. Not all Liberty prints are my cup of tea, but even with the birth of the more affordable Lifestyle range these fabrics still deserve proper showcasing. Apart from the Nine-Patch Revisited Baby Quilt and the Seashore Baby Quilt, I don't think any quilt project does a fantastic job of putting Liberty in the limelight; they seem a tad too scrappy in my opinion.
Speaking of quilts, I don't quite understand some of the technique choices. The Classic Thread Spool Quilts consist of spools and the ends of the spools are made of a rectangle as well as two half-square triangles, which results in a chopped-up print. Why not make triangle ends to the rectangle instead? The Goodnight Fairy Tale Quilt is built of blocks of circles in squares and each block consists of four smaller blocks (inset quarter circles). Why not make an inset or appliqué circle to keep both background square and circle intact? As the pattern is written now, the fabric patterns are cut in a way that looks far from good.
I don't sew garments and can therefore not comment on technique choices in those. The smaller projects are cute in a way, but since the blogosphere is full of similar tutorials for free, unfortunately I'm not wowed. I would like to give this book more stars, but since it's a library book, I'll return it and leave it at that.
Finally, considering its title, I'm surprised to learn Liberty hasn't commissioned this book, but it's written by someone with an appreciation for their fabrics; I feel it rides a bit on the reputation of the fabric manufacturer.
