Even though this is a quilt book for children, the author Connie Ewbank has designed this that some of the designs are great for older children, even adults, (you would just need to make it a bit bigger.) I really loved the heart quilt, stunning and I would love to make it as a wall hanging.
Most importantly the instructions are nice and clear, with colour illustrations each new section highlighted which is excellent.
This book has 47 brightly coloured pages.

I was very impressed the author suggesting making children's quilts for children in crisis charities, which is brilliant as not many authors mention. She mentions a variety of US charities, but as far as I know, The Linus project is the only one in the UK which everyone taps into. Most UK quilting shop will know of The Linus Project, and many work closely with the projects holding Linus project days within the store where customers can come, quilt for free with donated or end of sale fabrics from the store. The shops will send off your quilt to the charity direct for free. Many quilt guilds also have Linus project days too and know where their nearest drop off point is. You can look up The Linus Project on the internet for more details.
I really wanted to give this book 5 stars as it's so fabulous, but it lacked in a couple of areas.
1. There was no proper introduction
2.Read more ›
