Most of the quilts in this book are around the 22" x 26" size - some slightly smaller and one or two a bit larger. As is usual with Darlene Zimmerman books she recommends you use specific tools to cut angles, but she also gives cutting instructions in case you don't have them. General tips take up very few spaces, most of the book contains good instructions as you go, with clear pics.

The first quilt is a picture of Little Bo-Peep in a pretty pink and green dress - the design is traced onto white cloth - then you colour the picture with crayons - which may be pencils to the English (not something I've done before) then you outline stitch/embroider other parts of it. This little quilt is surrounded by one round of flower blocks, and used as a wall hanging.

A pansy quilt uses appliqued pansies and neat green and white nine patch blocks and has a pansy fabric scalloped edge; quilts by this author often have interesting borders,a bright quilt made from "bird in air" blocks has a prairie points border; a bear paw panel has a soft scallop edge; there's a double border for a fresh yellow and lavender floral quilt made with pinwheel blocks; a sharper scallop for a floral block quilt, another soft scallop edge finishes A Tisket A Tasket a pink polka basket - the basket is very tall and has a retro Art Deco look to it and is appliqued onto the background block, muted colours used add to the "old" look. A churn dash block makes the most of just 3 fabrics in 2 colours easy and cheap!
All the quilts are easy to make and can provide a bit of experience in making edges which are not straight.

quite disappointed by this book, the projects are not particularly exciting, the explanations mostly refer to specific templates that you should buy separately from the states, some of the quilts really look out of an 80's magazine...

cannot make these quilts in a day, more like a month 30 Jun. 2008
By J. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The quilts in this book are cute. I've started one. There is no way it can be completed in a day. I'm shooting for a month. A few of the quilts require you to go out and buy a special tool - Tri Recs. If I had know that I probably wouldn't have bought the book.

Great ideas, but unrealistic timeline. 24 Feb. 2010
By Kriss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I vacillated a long time in deciding whether to give this book 3 or 4 stars.

One on hand, the patterns are charming and the instructions are clear and easy to follow, even for a beginning quilter such as myself.

On the other hand, though, the title & description are so misleading by claiming you can complete one of these projects in a day, much less an evening or a weekend. Maybe it's just because I'm new and still unsure around my sewing machine; but I can't imagine selecting the fabrics, cutting, piecing, sewing, basting, quilting, and binding one of these quilts in under a week. And even that would be a stretch, unless my family would quit pestering me 25 hours a day! :)

I guess my advice is to order at your own risk. I loved the suggestion of adding a scalloped edge, but felt completely incompetent at the suggestion that I should be able to put one of these together in a day. Caveat emptor, and happy stitching!

Selection 11 July 2013
By Cheryl A. Whaley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has a nice variety of small - but not mini - quilts. It offers a great opportunity to try different patterns such as "Bear Paws," "Baskets," and "Pinwheels." It also includes different techniques such as piecing and applique, and prairie point and scalloped borders. And it can all be done with just a small investment in both fabric and time.
