Great ideas and gorgeous fabrics,
This review is from: Last-minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts (Hardcover)
I had to write a review simply to bump the star rating of this book up a bit... It's a book of last minute gifts after all, so I think it's a bit unfair to expect much in the way of complicated projects from it. Having said that, there are several projects in here which are certainly more complicated (or look it) than in many of the similar books on the market (where I often wonder why they even bother giving you a pattern). Sure there are simple ones too, but that's the point when you want to get something made in a couple of hours (like making a pencil roll an hour before a children's birthday party!). The photos are gorgeous and the use of fabrics is really inspirational - the colour wheel quilt for example is just a stunner.
