Review from The Applique Society Newsletter, January/February 2015
Have you succumbed to the lure of the Precuts? With names like Charm Squares, Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes, and don't forget the appliquers friend, the Fat Quarter, how can you resist? Now that you have added these precuts to your stash, you are left wondering exactly how best to use these pieces. The folks at Martingale have gathered the most popular projects from their best selling books and assembled them into one fabulous book called Perfect Quilts for Precut Fabrics - 64 Patterns for Fat Quarters, Charm Squares, Jelly Rolls, and Layer Cakes. The projects are organized by the cut of fabric so if you have a ton of 5" Charm Squares you can page right to the section titled Charm Squares and see that there are 23 quilt projects that can be made using your charms. All the quilts in this book look like they would be fun to make but I was particularly attracted to the quilts that included applique. All the instructions are clearly written and illustrated. The applique patterns are included for those quilts that contain applique.
Review from Popular Patchwork, March 2015
There isn't a quilter we know that doesn't have a sizeable collection of fat quarters, jelly rolls or other precuts that are sitting pretty and unused; we all love to buy these things that call to us from fabric displays, and all of a sudden we have a mountain of tidy squares politely but insistently begging to be used. This book may go some way to making headway with that collection and putting it to use. This large book is packed with fantastic quilts from very talented designers, all organised by cuts of fabric. Whether you like more geometric, formal designs or a slightly more organic and folky look, there's something here for you. It's very easy to match your precuts to a quilt that suits and the designs jump off the page invitingly; you'll want to make them all. This will leave you with a very pleasant problem; you'll want to go out and buy more of whatever you don't have in order to realise some of these designs - so make some space for more jelly rolls ...
