I have never made a quilt but have often admired them. They are a practical, beautiful art form. So, I was intrigued by this title which looks like it might be for beginning quilters as well as those who are more experienced.
The book starts with a brief history of quilting. I learned that quilting came to Britain by way of the Crusades and that different styles of quilting developed in the U.S. and Britain, though these distinctions faded over time. The book goes on to talk about the tools and materials that are needed for the projects along with an explanation of what tools and techniques make it possible to make a quilt in as little time as a weekend.
After this, there are many projects. Each comes with complete instructions. Every quilt is shown in a photograph and these makes for a fun look.
This appears to be a good title for a novice quilter although some reviewers felt that they were more for advanced beginners. I am not qualified to answer that question but will say that this looks to be a good resource for those who want to make quilts from baby crib to twin bed sized.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.
