Format: Paperback
This book is a joy to use. Simple in its style, it is well laid out in age groups. Every quilt ( and there are at least 3 in each area) has clear, consise intructions, with bright photographs of the finished item. I would say it would be most useful to all standards of quilter and contains something to challedge beginner and experienced alike. If you want to make for children up to teenage years then this is the book for you, buy it today !

I had this book from the library, and the quilt designs look great. There's a good selection of quilts and cushions, and a lovely Christmas stocking. However, as a novice I find the instructions to be a little cursory and lacking in detail. More importantly, the fabric requirements seem to be wrong - I have needed twice as much fabric as listed for the Flying Quilt and several more patterns look to have the same problem. The charming Christmas log cabin quilt (which I haven't tried) has blocks which seem to be sized differently in the pictures from in the instructions. I'd love to make it, but will need to work out the sizes (and fabric requirements) for myself. The book relies on cutting templates, rather than using rotary cutters and quilters' rulers, which could be used to make piecing simpler - however, this does make the patterns more accessible to those who don't have this useful equipment.
