I own a few lovely quilting books, but this is by far my favourite (although I haven't bought their second book yet!)and I am currently carrying it around the house with me to read whilst cooking the childrens dinner etc! I am fairly new to quilting, but the mouth-watering colours and modern designs in this book have really inspired me to move away from the more 'traditional' quilting projects. Its written clearly and instructions are easy to follow with lots of diagrams and colour photos for each stage of each quilt. I am making the 'house & people' quilt at the moment and this book has given me the courage to really go for more random shapes. I look forward to making many of the others too, and now have added the second book to my wish-list (my birthday is soon!). I only wish I could visit their shop...Australia is such a long way away!!
