Baby quilts of course are a special category -- they not only need to be appealing in a nursery but made with the knowledge they will be urped upon. This would be a good book for a beginning quilter because the author provides an extensive introduction to quilting at the beginning of the book and then plans and instructions for twenty baby/child quilts that are simple to construct and varied in color and design. You WILL find pastels in this book, but you'll also find bright primaries and subtle monochromes in the mix. All of the designs are traditional, but many with a twist. All instructions are illustrated with color diagrams and besides the many quilt photos there are several charming snapshots of the author's cats.
Of her wildly popular baby-quilt books, Ursula Reikes says, "They're written for those busy people who want to make something special but don't have a lot of time to invest in the process."
