Product Description


Are you ready for a triangle extravaganza? Just when you thought you had seen it all as far as the triangle is concerned, up pops another book with even more ideas for the use of the humble triangle. This book contains 11 deceptively easy quilts featuring stars, daisies and pinwheels, all with full instructions on how to create complex-looking designs for any size quilt by combining simple shapes like triangles and diamonds. There are also a number of skill-building techniques from strip piecing to the dreaded Y-seam, so here is a good opportunity to extend your repertoire.--Jennifer Trollope "Fabrications Quilting For You, 06/26/12 "

Simply Stunning Projects To Stretch Your Imagination (and Maybe Your Wallet) 27 Feb. 2012
By S. L. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The 11 projects in Barbara Cline's new book Simply Triangles are striking and lovely; Ms. Cline imparts a surprising amount of diversity to the humble 60-degree triangle. First, she dresses up the conventional 6-pointed star with 7 patterns that incorporate borders, stacked strippy units, and even applique (making for a very Dresden-like star). Next, triangles morph into flowers with 2 unique designs. Cline ends with two Pinwheel-based projects: one is embellished with buttons and the other has a vivid tessellating appearance. Each project includes a short "Life Lessons" box illustrating the huge influence on the author of her Mennonite family. Photographs are in abundance, and highlight the exceptionally nice quilting details. Both traditional and contemporary quilters will find something very pleasing here.

As for skill level, my opinion is that this book might be a challenge for some new beginners, as there are templates (included) and Y-seams; precision piecing skills will be a must. But I still recommend this book for all skill levels, as I remember when I first started out I went straight to the tough stuff so I could learn everything all at once. (In retrospect, perhaps that approach is not recommended!) Additionally, an endless supply of fabrics - or friends with fabrics - would be helpful because each quilt allows wonderful opportunities to play with value and contrast.

This book is set apart from all the rest, and not just for its beautiful contents. Budget-conscious quilters might like to know there could be an extra ruler, an additional tool, and new products in their future:

1. Ruler - Creative Grids 60-degree Triangle Creative Grids 60 Degree Triangle (Finished Size Up to 8") Quilting Ruler. I was hoping I could use the Clear-View Triangle I already own, but no. The CG triangle is longer (and thus wider at the base) than the CV one, and most importantly the CG also has a differently configured tip.
2. Tool - Ms. Cline recommends using Jinny Beyer Perfect Piecer Quilt Template for help with Y-seams
3. Materials - 108-inch wide black nylon netting (used as an overlay to create an amazing receding effect in several projects), batiste (for triangle foundations), 20-inch wide double-sided fusible web (Ms. Cline uses Shades SoftFuse which will add significant cost to your projects: each 8x9 inch segment is about 1.00 per piece)

Ms. Cline is also the author of another absolutely stunning book Star Struck Quilts: Dazzling Diamonds & Tradiational Blocks; 13 Skill-Building Projects. Now that I own both books I am convinced she is in a class of her own, and the quilting industry is fortunate to have such an inventive talent.

Avoid the Kindle Edition! 3 Mar. 2013
By VTQuilter - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Book is great but I don't recommend purchasing the Kindle edition. There is no way of printing from the Kindle, therefore, you can't print the templates that are supplied in the book. Spend a bit more and buy the actual book. Lesson learned :-(

The design looks beautiful but.... 3 Feb. 2013
By Jackie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The design looks beautiful but I was disappointed that the shaddowing on the stars were created by placing netting over half of the star's segments. This is not a technique to be used on quilts and I do not believe I would want to use it on a wall hanging unless it is put under glass.

fun pictures 25 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great ideas, fun pictures, beautiful quilts. Some instructions make the quilts harder than they need to be; use of nylon netting for shading seems to me to be a very bad idea, even for an art quilt, but especially for a bed quilt.

Love it! 1 April 2013
By Sharon Mcdonald - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was exactly as stated & I received it sooner than expected. I am a beginner quilter & quickly realized that I will need to do a few quilts before I attempt these. In my opinion is is intermediate level. Can't wait. Easy to follow directions.
