With quilting books I usually plan to make about half of the patterns. However, with this one I could probably do most of them if I had the time. The instructions are clear, with good photos and variety of projects to use up charm packs, mini charm packs, layer cakes, jelly roll, fat quarters etc. There are around 4 patterns for each from large quilts, cushions and wall hangings. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best of 2013! Hands Down! 16 Dec. 2013
By Elle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gerri Robinson's book certainly lives up to its title! I love every project in this book! Seriously, and this is rare for me. I've bought a couple dozen quilting books this year and this makes it to my top five favorites. All the projects are made using "pre-cuts." The creator of these handy fabric cuts is my hero! I'm particularly fond of star blocks and Ms. Robinson features this in all 18 projects. There are framed wall hangings (ranging in sizes from 24x8-inches, 20x20-inches, 24x24-inches, 32x32-inches), small wall hangings and throws, bed sized, 16-inch square and 19-inch square box cushions, and 12-inch square pillows.

The projects are broken down by the type of pre-cut fabric used for the projects. I love pre-cut fabrics but making my own from yardage is also presented as an option. Four projects use mini-charm and charm packs, four projects use layer cake squares, two use fat-eighths, and four use fat quarters. If this is Greek to you, have no fear, Ms. Robinson explains these cuts.

In addition to explaining pre-cuts, the beginning of the book contains Quilt-making Basics, Robinson shows her methods for making: flying geese units, quick-angled rectangles, square-in-a-square units, pieced sashing, and wool applique. She also details how she frames quilts. Other basic techniques are adding borders, layering and quilting, binding, and covered cording.

The photos are beautiful. It's a bonus to me that Ms. Robinson's fabric choices appeal to my aesthetic. I'm especially fond of the reds shown on the cover quilts. I've learned that my eye appreciates high-contrast fabric usage and these designs are perfect for that. I highly recommend this book and hope this review helps you in some way determine if it is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming! 17 Jan. 2014
By Linda Lubke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I keep buying 'charm' packs because they are so pretty! NOW, I have some ideas of how to use them! Secret is to make myself make the time to actually make them. I keep looking at the book and choosing projects. My resolution is to complete one by March 1st! The directions seem to be easy to follow and within my skill level as a confident 'beginner'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Ideas 11 April 2014
By matulp - Published on Amazon.com

I usually rate a book by how many of the projects presented I'd like to make and this book has many tempting projects. They are clearly presented with good directions. The final proof would be to actually make a project, but I'm a "little behind" in that category. I plan to make some of the picture size quilts (the art ones). What a great way to make a mini project to at least try out a larger project. Good job Gerri Robinson. I'd even gift this book to my quilting daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Book! 8 Dec. 2013
By Brenda Ramey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a habit of purchasing fats, charm squares, and strips and wanted ideas how to use them. Gerri Robinson hit it out of the ballpark with this collection of patterns. You don't have to purchase pre-cut fabrics--you can cut them from your stash!
