“I have been a seamstress for over 35 years and have always resisted the urge to
quilt. When I saw this book, I knew I'd no longer be able to resist!
From the first page to the last, there are "WOW" pages and easy to understand patterns
and instructions. The instructions are step-by-step and each one is illustrated.
It would be a wonderful addition to any quilter’s library. It is appropriate for
beginners and accomplished quilters.”
Simple, step-by-step instructions July 28, 2010
By Vivian Benton (Pittsburgh, PA, US)
Geesje Baron & Esther Vermeer have taken fabric folding to a new level. These blocks
really do look like they're pieced. I have only made a few of them (for practice),
but I really enjoyed doing them.
The instructions are simple, and you're taken step-by-step through the process. It's
nice the authors identified each block as either easy, intermediate or advanced so
you know what you're getting into before you start. And I just love the Trinket Box
which is great to make for Christmas gifts.
