In her debut collection, Australian quilt blogger Flendt takes common quilt block components, such as half-square triangles and flying geese, and techniques such as appliqué and English paper piecing, and transforms them into a series of small projects. Each section includes three tutorials: an overview of the basic block or technique, a miniquilt, and a project, which ranges from small household accessories such as pillow covers or table runners to crib-size quilts. Straightforward cutting instructions and many precut-friendly designs reduces the amount of cutting necessary.
VERDICT The array of techniques included in this collection of contemporary quilt projects is impressive, and Flendt has an eye for color that shines. Quilters of all skill levels will find plenty to explore.
