Another pretty Cath Kidston book for your collection. I ordered this on advance order to obtain the lower price, and was refunded the difference as is has since gone down a £1 Thanks Amazon!
The book is called Patch which implies patchwork, but this includes basic aplique methods also. If you are looking for a patchwork manual then this is not your book, and I would go you Jane Brocket's Gentle Art of Quilt making book. However most purchasers of this book are dye in the wool Cath Kidston fans and are adding to their collection which I have done. As usual lovely illustrations using some vintage fabrics, and the free kit included which consists of calico fabric and a selection of small CK fabrics to make a cushion of a shopper bag make this book a steal at £8.

My copy arrived just this morning (much to my excitement!), so whilst I have read the book - I haven't made anything from it - so can't comment on the directions etc.

The style of the book is very much the same as 'Sew' and 'stitch', with nice pictures but rather annoyingly white text on pastel coloured pages.

I am a relative newcomer to patchwork, and feel I could tackle all of the projects in the book. My criticism would be that there are too many patterns for tote bags! Also bear in mind this seems to be more for small projects, if you're planning on making a quilt for instance this won't help - there is nothing about wadding or binding etc.

However, there is just something about the Cath Kidston books I love, plus there are some good ideas, for example a tablecloth made from teatowels (although not sure how much patchwork skill that really takes...)

Another fantastic addition to Cath Kidston's ever increasing library of needlework books. This book concentrates on Patchwork and includes a fantastic free gift with which you have all the materials to make either the bag or cushion as shown on the front cover.

Patchwork, the art of sewing together cut pieces of material to create a larger design, is become more popular again and can be done using pieces of fabric cut from old clothes, fabrics etc and can be used to decorate no end of projects.

As with all Cath Kidston books, this book begins with a great chapter entitled Basics. There is a page detailing essential equipment; what should be inside a work box, the essentials and the other bits and pieces which will make the job easier; two pages detail the basics for cutting out 'patches', with hints and tips for using templates, using rotary cutters and planing your patches. There is a page on using sewing machines for patchwork and also hand sewing basics with some great pictures accompanying the text. The rest of this section looks at traditional techniques, four of which are discussed in the book; hand applique and the use of embellishments on your designs. How to choose fabrics is discussed in this chapter along with instructions for hand embroidery stitches.

There are over 30 projects included in the book, with lots of photographs for inspiration all using Cath's gorgeous fabrics. The projects are for a range of abilities, some for the novice whereas others may need a higher level of experience to complete. There are a number of bags; tote, messanger, knitting and wash bags; cushions; bedcovers, including blankets, bedcovers; beanbag covers; pincushions; pictures and decorating clothes.

The pictures show cute items- but they mostly look very home made and didn't inspire like so many patchwork books do. Might be good for a teenager or a total novice (in fact one cushion is even listed as a suitable project for kids.)
There's a number of bags, cushions, a patchwork dog, jewellery, bedcovers, a pincushion...
I DID quite like the tablecloth made out of teatowels; also the cathedral window bedspread. Less struck on the bunny applique on jumper (and do adults today really need instructions for putting patches on knees of kids' trousers? I seem to remember doing it on a weekly basis- albeit not in decorative fabric!)
