This is NOT a patchwork and quilting book - let's make that clear. I quilt, but also do general sewing (Amy Butler stuff etc), and to my mind this is a sewing book for anyone who wants the patchwork and quilted 'vibe' with that modern Amy look, but without actually getting bogged down in learning to sew the 'quilting' way. If you're already a dedicated quilter, you WILL be disappointed in the disregard for quilting techniques and in fact the lack of much quilting at all (it focuses on the patchwork side). Try Quilt Yourself Gorgeous -lovely projects but written by an experienced quilter. However if you just love sewing with modern fabrics and want the patchwork look, then you'll love this as much as her last book (and the photography is really good here!).

I have to admit to being a little disappointed with this book. Yes, there are many lovely things to make, but some of the instructions leave a bit to be desired. For example, I was surprised that although mention is made of rotary cutting techniques, the method used in nearly every pattern is to create a paper template and cut out each shape, even the simplest square or rectangle, individually. Emma also advises pressing all seams open, whereas seams are generally pressed to one side in all the patchwork/quilting patterns I have seen. In some of the projects, despite the title of the book, quilting is absent, or is merely for decoration rather than to hold the layers together, making me wonder how practical the items will be once they are washed. How will the wadding stay in place without quilting to hold it there? I think there should be more detailed advice about techniques too, such as cutting the backing and wadding bigger than the patched quilt top and then trimming to size once quilted. Also, standard patchwork seams are 1/4" but Emma uses 1/2", which is potentially confusing for more experienced quilters.

Despite these misgivings, the projects are lovely and the book is beautifully put together and styled. I just wonder whether a beginner or novice might be a little disappointed if they follow the instructions to the letter. I will certainly make many of the items but will alter the instructions where necessary.

I bought this book as a treat for myself and was very disappointed. As mentioned in the other review there is a distinct lack of instructions and for a quilter the seam allowance and ironing information are confusing.

I also found the list of items needed very vague and no finished item measurements, so you don't even know what you are aiming for size wise.

On the up side the book has lovely projects and great photography, but I would personally do some major tweaking on all the projects to make them work for me.

Great for inspiration, but perhaps not a beginners book.

I got this book for my birthday and being new to quilting, I found this a breath of fresh air. I am a busy Mum with a four year old and tackling a really large quilting project is quite daunting. I was very surprised at how long my first project (a wall hanging quilt about 3ft square all done with traditional techniques and hand quilted) has taken me and I am really looking forward to making some of the things in this book. I agree with the other reveiwers, it perhaps isn't pure quilting, but if you want to make some lovely things for your home, which take maybe a few hours, or few days to make, rather than a few months or few years, then this is a great book. I love quilting, but have an unfortunate personality trait of losing momentum if something takes ages, so this book with its quick and easy projects is just right. I definitely want to make a handbag, which I think will cost me about £12-15 to make and would probably sell in Monsoon for about £30, I also want to make the sofa throw, which is patchwork and quilted with randomly placed buttons and the idea of a small quilt with a baby's cot quilt inside for wadding (ie you are making a patchwork duvet cover and then quilting through the duvet with ties) seems a great way of getting a patchwork look in super quick time. If you aren't super patient and haven't got loads of time, but want to make some nice things, they get this book. If you are looking for detailed quilt patterns and technique details, then look for something else.

I have just treated myself to a sewing machine as I am now a stay at home mum and felt that I would like to so something productive with my time. I ordered this booked based on the title and was surprised and delighted to find there is so much more to the book than quilts, all kinds of bags, coasters, things for all parts of the home. Despite the dubious material on the front cover, the inside is inspirational in terms of materials and presentation and I can see this is going to get a lot of use over the coming months and years as things need to be replaced. I am now firmly of the motto, why buy when you can make!

You won't be disappointed!

This book is really gorgeous! It is like a pandora's box-even for experienced needle workers like myself. It is not difficult to follow though,and a complete novice would find this a good book to learn from .The patterns make lovely kit ideas for needlecraft groups.It would make a much appreciated present-I'm sure.
