In this follow-up title to her 2013 publication 25 Patchwork Quilt Blocks, Katy brings another collection of blocks that put an up-to-date slant on traditional designs. After a section on the basics, each block is presented in turn, accompanied by step-by-step diagrams; this is followed by a project section giving patterns for an apron, a drawstring bag and two quilts. But as each block measures 6in square (finished) - or 8in square (finished) if bordered as shown - if you wish you could mix and match the blocks to create your own patterns. The modern prints used in this book may well appeal to younger quilters.
Review from Anorina Morris, Samelia's Mum Blog, June 2014
Katy Jones of popular blog, Monkey Do, is back with her follow-up book to 25 Patchwork Quilt Blocks. This second book is filled with contemporary interpretations of traditional blocks as well as a few new blocks. The blocks are created using a variety of methods which encourage the novice sewist to learn new skills including the use of templates, machine applique and English Paper Piecing. The step by step instructions and excellent images will assist the sewist to create beautiful projects in no time. 25 Patchwork Quilt Blocks (Vol 2) is a wonderful resource with contemporary ideas for the patchwork book library.
Katy Jones is a British quilter, blogger, author, wife, and mummy who first started quilting in 2008 with the gentle encouragement of a friend. Her first quilt was somewhat of a disaster, since she made it up as she went along and hoped for the best. "The best" didn't really happen, but the quilt was used and loved and it started her on a path of obsession. In 2010, Katy cofounded the popular digital quilting eMagazine Fat Quarterly, and she regularly teaches patchwork and quilting workshops, hoping she can convert the whole world to the joy of quilting.Visit Katy's website
