  1. This lovely book provides patterns for doll size quilts. But what quilts! These little quilts are big quilts in miniature – the pieces have been cut in scale and the fabrics have been chosen so that they are suitable for the sizes of the pieces in the quilts.

    The book is not aimed at the beginner who has never made a quilt but anyone who has made a couple of patchwork quilts would be able to tackle any of the project recipes in this book.

    A wide range of techniques is covered in the 18 miniature quilts featured in the book and there should be something for everyone. Techniques covered include whole cloth miniature quilts in the Welsh style through to the traditional English paper pieced quilts from the 19th century, applique work and traditional American blocks. There is also an introductory section covering absolute basics so that you have some idea of what the author is referring to in the patterns.

    This is a super book which most quilters will enjoy!

  2. This is a 62 page book with instructions for 18 quilts for the beginning quilter to the advanced. I found only 3 quilts that I liked but not enough to make any but one of them. This is a book which I’ll be putting in my next yard sale. You might want to check this out at a library or book store before deciding to buy. If the library doesn’t have it you could order it through a book store to view.
