An excellent book with lots of great ideas. The best thing was that you could try a smaller project to "have a go" before moving onto a larger full sized quilt.

From Little Things Come Big Things 16 Dec. 2013
By Elle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The driving idea behind this book is to start out with small quilting projects, doll sized quilts, learn the techniques needed in the design, and then transfer this skill to make large quilts. I purchased this book in the hope that there would be a project or two that I haven't already seen or made. For, me, a collector of quilting books, I really didn't find anything new. As to the concept of starting out practicing a certain technique in a smaller size, it is something that can be done with any design. I often will make one block that I especially like into a pillow or small wall hanging. Doing this has helped me overcome feeling overwhelmed by a large project. This is the overall teaching in this book.

Ms. Fielke tells her readers in the introduction that what she hopes we'll take from her book is, "...the courage to try something different, to experiment with techniques, colors or textures that you may not have tried before, and discover what inspires, fulfills, and delights you about the quilts that you make." The designs in this book certainly reflect her idea of "different." Beauty is indeed, in the eye of the beholder. The projects within are created in color and fabric that does not appeal to me but this is, of course, a matter of taste. Someone who is experienced at or comfortable with envisioning a project done in their own color choices shouldn't have difficulty making them to their own taste.

Most of the projects were made from the author's stash of fabrics. Those without a stash can make them by beginning a stash. ;-) The quilts are broken down into ten categories with a small and large quilt in each. The techniques are: row by row, strip piecing, deconstructed piecing, applique with bias strips, flying geese and foundation piecing, inset piecing, needle-turn applique, using wedges, step-down piecing, and feathered blocks. Instructions are given for each of the techniques. Each project is rated for difficulty. I found helpful the definition of what Fielke believes constitutes a level of skill. I continually vacillate about my skill level. Fielke breaks down her projects thus: level one, straightforward piecing; level two, more complex techniques; level three, complex techniques such as inset piecing; and level four, more than one complex technique required. Each project outlines the techniques used to make it, a materials and tools list, and step-by-step instructions with illustrated diagrams. In the back of the book is a section on "basics, layout, and assembly." There is a glossary of terms and a packet of full-sized templates.

Great Inspiration! 1 April 2014
By Christina Burnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not for beginners but very detailed for the ambitious quilter who wants to learn new techniques. Love her hand quilting and now I'm doing it too! It gives a beautiful definition and feel to the quilt and takes as much time as cocheting or knitting a little blanket! Beautiful way to enhance the quilt top work!

playing with little things 19 Nov. 2012
By jm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for all levels of quilting skills. It made me rethink some of the larger projects that I've canned because they were just that - LARGE. This book explores possibilities in a nicely written, easy to follow text. Photos are great too.

It's OK 27 Jan. 2014
By Carol E. Congdon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The instructions are clear and the photographs very well done. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything really new in this book, either patterns or techniques. I did take Sarah's class on Craftsy and liked it very much, which is why I purchased the book.
Great book 26 Feb. 2013
By Sharon Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sarah did a great job explaining the projects even to a beginner. Also the small dolly quilts give you an opportunity to try a pattern out before investing time and money into large project.
