There are 7 pages of general instructions and Ms. Brown leans towards using a specialty ruler and talks about it. A one page bio is found at the end of the book.
Each project is shown in color and has the finished block and quilt size and a couple of paragraphs about the item. A material and cutting list provides the basics to get started. Instructions include graphics and an exploded picture of the finished item. Alas, there are no specific quilting instructions but the old standby of "quilt as desired".
By using one or sometimes two fabrics of larger yardage, you and your scrap basket can make beautiful quilts.
I'm not sure if you are like me, I see these interesting shape rules off the Creative Grid stand, not sure quite what to do with many of them and just stick with my normal quilters ruler, and 4"/8" blocks and that's about it. Well this author was the same, until one day for some reason she just picked up the ruler which has a normal ruler bottom, and 2 triangles on the top. Due to stress, being so over worked the author picked up this crazy looking ruler and thought she would cut up some stripped fabric with it and played around with the shapes. Within 3/4 hour, she had discovered she'd designed 30 quilts, in the simplist and quickest manor possible!!!!
The author demonstrated how to use this ruler which is very important.
This book shows you one very very easy method to make the most stunning quilts without fussy cutting and hours working out what goes where!!! This is a brilliant books for beginners too, as it will fill them so full of self confidence being able to create the most amazing modern quilts just by repositioning the blocks shown in this book!!!!
I have never been SO EXCITED about a quilt book as I am with this one!!!
I am a quilter with disabilities, so making quilts so simplistically with the most amazing designs has opened up my physical ability to quilt so much better, and feel so proud at what I've achieved!!!Read more ›
