As a fan of one block quilts, I loved the range of projects in Sue Pfau's new book. Most are simple designs that are suitable for beginners, as well as making great weekend projects for those with some quilting experience. The twelve projects are evenly separated out into three sections depending on what you need; Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Fat Quarter. None of the quilts require any additional fabric to make the tops so you can get straight to work, as well as helping cut down the time spent choosing fabric. The author also advises on topics such as working with limited fabrics, creating contrast in your layout and increasing the quilt size, so if you wish to use scrap fabric there are plenty of tips you can follow. Each project shows at least one alternative colour way and there is an interesting mix of fabrics, from florals to batiks. If you often make quilts as presents, or are looking for projects that are quick to make, then do take a look at this book.
Sue Pfau first started quilting as a flight attendant, bringing hand applique on flights. In 2006 she began making and selling quilts but had a hard time finding patterns that were quick and easy yet also beautiful and interesting. So she began designing her own. This led to her design company, called Sweet Jane's Quilting and Design after her daughter, Jane. Visit Sue at SweetJanesQuilting.blogspot.com or her shop at SweetJane.etsy.com.
