Award-winning quilter Nikki presents over 20 designs on a floral theme. In this recent title in the Love to Sew series materials and techniques are fully explained, and detailed instructions with templates follow to ensure that both beginner and more experienced can achieve success. A delightful book packed with small inspirational projects that are fun to make.-East Kent Embroiderers' Guild There's nothing quite like this book on the market, so it's a must have for anyone interested in quilted flowers. It shows 20 beautiful and unique projects to give as gifts, or keep as a wonderful treat. Clear step by step instructions make the projects accessible for beginners. with plenty to inspire the more experienced.-Machine Knitting Monthly All of the projects in this book are inspired by flowers and are a great way to learn quilting without having to buy a lot of fabric. These are all small items, and a fun way of recycling leftovers from larger projects. There are twenty projects in here and yes, this book is suitable for beginners. More experienced quilters will also find much in here to please, particularly because there are none of the large and challenging projects normally found in books on quilting. Instead there are greetings cards, bags, bunting, cushions, tree decorations, a phone case and, of course, a quilt, but a mini one. The introduction states that once you have made a few of the items in here you will be almost ready to tackle a full-sized project. You can learn the stitches and what you need to own in order to start quilting (both hand and machine), which fortunately is not much if you already sew. Each project features a whole page photograph, templates and written instructions as well as a list of what you need, helpfully including a list of all the tools. This is a great little book for a beginner as it isn't daunting, and as you make up the simple and useful items it will teach you most of the basics of quilting.-Myshelf.com
