5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and Informative, 4 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Guide to Patchwork, The (Paperback)
Having returned to patchwork and quilting last year after a long spell of inactivity I found some of the greatest sources of Quilty information was from blogs and one of the most inspirational ones was Elizabeth Hartman's Oh, Fransson blog. So having tried out some of her free patterns in the past I was eagerly awaiting getting my hands on a copy of this book. I have to say I wasn't disappointed.

If you are new to the craft there is a useful guide to patchwork and quilting. Then the projects in the book are split into sections aimed at different skill levels: From projects to get you started, to confident beginner and intermediate. The projects are great starting points to build confidence whilst creating attracive quilts that anyone would want to own.

One of the great things about this book is the way it clearly tells you how much fabric each project requires and even gives you alternative fabric requirements if you are using different cuts of fabric or scraps. There are also suggestions on how you can make the projects look 'different' through simple changes to fabric choices. The projects are laid our clearly and explained well.

If you are an experienced quilter, preferring complicated blocks and patterns this is NOT the book for you and if you buy it expecting to get projects aimed at advanced skill level then you will be disappointed. At no point does this book claim to be aimed at the experirenced patchworker. That's not to say this book wouldn't be a welcome addition to any quilters bookshelf.
