Quilt It, Crochet It!: Sew and Stitch 14 Colorful Designs

Landauer. Mar. 2023. 96p. ISBN 9781639810093. pap. $19.99. CRAFTS
This is a loving testament to quilter/designer Flendt’s family history that literally and figuratively stitches together two fiber-art forms: quilting and crocheting. These two don’t usually share space in a book or in a crafter’s toolkit, which makes this a rare title. The book’s projects have clear, beginner-friendly tips that make it easy for longtime practitioners of one of the crafts to risk trying the other. The lovely designs make the book worthwhile, giving readers the option to crochet, quilt, or both. The author gives a clear outline of everything needed for all the projects, which are arranged with clearly indicated difficulty levels. This enables readers to readily know the skills required before attempting something beyond their comfort level. The book’s clear instructions, however, make more advanced projects seem possible.
VERDICT The pairings in this book will likely inspire readers to mix craft techniques, create uncommon, interesting projects, and consider scraps, fabrics, and fibers in new ways.
