Many say they would never want to be a teenager again, but the projects in this book might just change your mind. (Forget quilting, I’d want to go back in time only to be able to eat as much as I want and still maintain my long-lost 32-inch waist!) I like that Cheryl Brown offers simple full-sized quilts using bright colors and snappy designs that keep you on your mechanical toes with techniques that include machine piecing, paper piecing, fusible and hand appliqué. None of it’s too hard but you will get a well-rounded workout with cheerful results. My real fave is the Holly Jolly Christmas quilt with its hip holly leaf appliqués. Most of these projects are suited for confident beginners and are especially enticing for your teen who needs to be coaxed to piecing lessons.
Should you buy it? Yep, especially if you make quilts for younger females. But don’t be afraid to change up the colors for either a masculine or monochromatic take – it’s your quilt!
