Just received this book and can't wait to get started on the quilts! Many can be made from scraps or pre-cuts and most are of useful size, as table runners, hangings or for doll quilts. Many a little girl would love to wrap up her doll in one of these. There are also some simple enough for teaching youngsters to sew and quilt. Lots of the quilts employ traditional blocks and designs which provide the means of learning the techniques involved in making them without too much financial outlay, thus avoiding costly mistakes. My advice? Buy this book!

There are so many beautiful quilts in this book it's hard to know which to start first. As it says, they are small quilts but can easily be made bigger by adding more blocks or sashings. The instructions are clear but may be a bit short for a beginner quilter. If you read them carefully before cutting your fabric it all makes sense. Lots of techniques are covered and the only problem will be deciding which one to make first. There seems to be a quilt for every occasion. This is a book I will refer to time and time again.

A fantastic collection of mini quilts with easy to follow instructions. I am looking forward to making a large number of the quilts shown and a couple that I intend to make on a much bigger scale. Great selection, clear instructions, good for all experience levels including beginner. I honestly believe that there is something for everyone in this book.
