5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide to patchwork, 17 April 2011
This review is from: Playful Patchwork: Happy, Colorful, and Irresistible Ideas and Instruction for Modern Piecework, Appliqué, and Quilting (Paperback)
This colourful book is a great guide for someone new to patchwork, or looking to improve their skills. The book is broken down into 4 main sections: Straight-line piecework, curved-line piecework, appliqué and quilting. Projects in the book include several bags, a pillow, a needle case, a tea cosy, quilts and coasters.

Each section starts by showing you examples of the technique along with project ideas (the instructions for the projects are in the back of the book). There are detailed instructions as well as hundreds of photos to guide you through each stage of the technique. You will also find illustrations of various stitches too.

At the back of the book as well as project instructions there is a full size pull out pattern sheet and a guide to fabrics and fabric arrangement. I am amazed at how much information there is in this book, if you are looking for some projects and techniques to get you started with Patchwork & quilting this is a good place to start.
