Most quiltmakers these days are familiar with the technique of sewing a smaller square to the corner of a larger one, trimming it, then folding it back to make a triangle in the corner of the larger square. In her latest book, Donna Lynn has taken this method to the next level to show you how to create striped squares, rectangles and triangles. She showcases these units in a series of 13 quilt projects, grouped by skill level, from beginner to more challenging. She's also included a gorgeous pinwheel quilt that makes use of the surplus triangles that you trim. The projects range in size from table runners through to double-bed-size quilts. Donna has used a wide range of colors and fabric types in her projects, which will give you good visual stimulation for making your own color choices.
