Review from Homespun
This book of 11 designs for baby and toddler quilts will be a useful resource for those who find themselves surrounded by young mums. grandchildren, nieces and nephews. It's a good 'go to' book when you want a range of options but you aren't necessarily planning to invest hundreds of hours to create a family heirloom. Most of the projects are quite straightforward: some are patchwork and some combine patchwork with applique. None of them is, in our view, a design sensation or avant-garde: you'll find many motifs that are typical baby fare - such as the alphabet and numbers, and train designs shown on the front cover. That doesn't mean, however, that they're not appealing: we just loved the Rubber Duckies Quilt, for example. And if you hate instructions that read "quilt as desired", you'll be pleased to know that Christine and Dana provide quite detailed descriptions of how they quilted each project, and a close-up photograph so you can see how the quilting looks.
