Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have several Michael Ball CD's and this is now one of my favourites, I love nearly all of the song choices and came across some new fabulous new ones, like Every Story, written by Elton John and Tim Rice from their Broadway show, Aida. I will be playing this CD a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real stunner, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this book when a friend was making something from it and instantly knew I had to have a copy myself. The designs are stunning, I know I will attempt to make several. They are not for the novice quilter but this is easily the best log cabin book I've come across.

This is a very nice book full of autumn quilt and cushion designs. I will definitely use some of them, I just wish there had been a few more designs.

This is an excellent exercise hoop, not too heavy, although slight weighted, and well padded. Highly recommend for giving yourself a tummy workout.

I love Kim Hargreaves pattern books and particularly thepeplum jackets she always includes. There is a beautiful one in this book, Erin, that I know I will make more than once, this was the reason i bought this book.


East Quilts West (Needlework and Quilting)
East Quilts West (Needlework and Quilting)
by Kumiko Sudo
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently came across Kumiko's books and have found them very difficult to buy in the UK, so was pleased to find East Quilts West on the Marketplace. I had seen photos of some of the quilts on a US site but when the book arrived it wasn't what I was expecting, not of the designs seemed to be in it. They are very complicated and consist of a lot of overlaid applique or fiddly piece work. The designs are very nice but to be honest I think I will only attempt possibly one of them. So it was quite disappointing, I think her later books are more user friendly.

This review is from: One Day (Audio CD)
I loved the film and thought I loved the music score, but on receipt of this CD found that I only like about half of the songs, but some are very nice, particularly Elvis Costello singing Sparkling Days and the three Rachel Portman tracks at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars I already have it, so have lost money!, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I realised, on receipt of this book, that I already have it under the title Compendium of Quilting Techniques, which was a big shame as I was so looking forward to it arriving and learning new techniques and a few trade secrets. I contacted Susan Briscoe, the author, and she replied to my e-mails very quickly, explaining how this had happened, one a UK publisher and one a US publisher. She has tried to explain this on the Amazon site and had left a note again, so hopefully this will be clearer for future purchasers. The Marketplace seller offered me a refund although i have now lost two lots of postage costs and ended up with no book. I've paid out good money for this error, yet have nothing to show for it, a fault that really should be rectified.


Prize Country Quilts
Prize Country Quilts

Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing, 16 Jun 2013

This review is from: Prize Country Quilts (Hardcover)
I had high hopes for this book and thought that with so many pages there would be at least a handful of good quilting patterns in it, but I see now why no one has reviewed it and why it was so cheap. It's a strange book and there are only one or two designs that I like and might use, perhaps not. There are templates for all the designs although I prefer rotary cutting but the patterns are not suitable for this. Overall a mistake buy.
