This book is suitable for beginner quilters and maybe quilters who have built up a big stash! This would make a great gift if you know any quilters! A good thing about the projects in this book is that you do not necessarily have to buy a jelly roll etc to make the projects - you could use scraps from your stash! Whether you want to make a gorgeous quilt with new fabrics as gift, or you are looking for a rainy-day project to use up all your scrap fabrics, there is a quilt in here for you!
This is a great book! There are so many of these quilts I would love to make. It might seem a bit expensive , but when you think that each pattern would normally cost $12-$16 approx, this is really great value for money.
This is one of favourite quilting books. The quilts are beautiful and made in fabrics that I recognise in many cases - an uncommon thing from a book. In some cases they have a photo of the quilt made up in an alternate colour-way which is nice when trying to imagine how your fabric will look. The instructions are clear and well-written with extra tips and tricks thrown in. There is a introduction about what jelly rolls are and some tips for using them, and a section at the back on how to calculate your fabric if you want to cut your own jelly roll strips, or use a smaller variety of fabrics. I would recommend this book for beginners and experienced quilters.
