A brilliant quilting book, packed with amazing designs that make this book an exceptional value perfect for quilters of all levels. Easy to see why this book is a Best Seller (aka "Must Have").
I love this book! I've been collecting jelly rolls and charm squares for years but just haven't seen patterns specifically for them that I wanted to make. This book is totally different. The quilts are elegant and the instructions are super-clear. I'm having a hard time deciding which to make first, but I'm thinking I'll make Gelato for my daughter first and them make Rugby Stars for myself. I'm sooo glad you published this book!
I highly recommend Gerri's book! It's not only aesthetically pleasing, but charming and beautifully written. Gerri writes in a style that allows the reader to experience what it would be like to have her in our home, as if we were carrying on a friendly conversation with a best friend. Warm and inviting, I found myself smiling at her humor and candor in her Introduction, admiring how she shared how she personally challenged herself to work with pre-cuts for the projects contained in this book.

All projects, from the framed, quilted wall art, to the beautiful quilts, and lovely pillows and cushions, make this book interesting and full of unique projects; projects to make for years to come, due to their timeless design. The bonus? Patterns are clear, concise, and easy to understand. An ideal book for the beginner to seasoned quilter! A must-have for your sewing library!
I have loved Gerri's designs for many years! Her book provides more of those wonderful designs in beautiful and colorful settings. Her trademark stars and pinwheels are a wonderful place to use all those tempting precuts we can't resist. Loving the smaller designs that she's placed in frames!
