Find quilts for all seasons - and other fun reasons! Create nine projects for year-round giving and home decor. Each trouble-free quilt pattern uses one basic patchwork block to create a background for a dash of applique. Stitch beginner-friendly blocks such as Log Cabin, Snowball, and Rail Fence. Perfect for using yardage, stash fabrics, fat quarters, and precuts (such as 10" squares and 2-1/2" strips).
Review from The Quilter Magazine, February/March 2014
Quilts for all seasons! Each of the nine irresistible projects in Geralyn J. Powers' book, Patchwork Plus, contains applique accents that reflect a particular season, holiday, or theme, such as springtime, Christmas, and Halloween. The beginner-friendly patchwork patterns include quilters' favorites like Log Cabin, Snowball, and Rail Fence blocks, but the applique embellishments give them all a novel twist. Best of all, you can use yardage that you already have in your stash, as well as fat quarters and precut strips and squares. If you like country quilts and whimsical designs, you will enjoy this book.

Creativity has been a part of Geralyn's life for as long as she can remember. She grew up around strong, accomplished women and watched them express their creativity while caring for homes and families. It was an amazing lesson that in the midst of the many demands of life, one can choose to be expressive in functional tasks. Both of her grandmothers excelled at sewing and quilting arts and helped her develop those skills. She was fortunate to participate in 4-H and, with the help of great leaders, she learned one can have a grand time while reaching for technical and artistic excellence. She graduated from college with a BS in Clothing and Textiles, and then promptly moved with her husband to a small Wyoming community that provided few merchandising opportunities. Luckily, their little town has a fabulous quilt shop that is Geralyn's "home away from home."
Geralyn designs quilt patterns and teaches lots of classes. Quilters are some of the loveliest people and she's learned so much from teaching and associating with such talented ladies. Nothing fosters creativity more than others who share its value.
Her greatest joy comes from her family. She's blessed with a very supportive husband, a son, a daughter, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and three wonderful grandchildren.
