I have only recently started making patchwork and stitched items, so the idea of several smaller things in this book caught my eye. I was not disappointed. There are lots or interesting things to make, none of them very complicated and all within a good budget. Have a look and have a go - I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Clear instructions and beautiful photographs help to make this a book worthy of the craft room shelves of beginner and expert alike.
This book has a selection of vintage inspired projects which are split into 3 sections: Small projects, small quilts and full size quilts. Each of the projects have a materials list, cutting instructions and directions for assembling the projects as well as diagrams and photos.
Throughout the book you will also find useful tips, recipes and little historical tales too giving you the background on the items you are making. The majority of the projects are traditional quilting based and made up in repro 1930's fabrics, although there are some variations in modern fabrics too. The small projects at the start include aprons, tea towels, a table runner, place mats and a cushion.
