Review from Popular Patchwork, December 2013
The fabrics and colour schemes in this title are adorable. If you like something a bit fresher and more modern than the usual traditional fabric offerings, but you still want something festive for the Christmas period, then this little collection could be what you've been waiting for. Within the 14 projects in this book, there's a mixture of small, easy-to-make, gift-sized projects, and larger more ambitious ones, but on the whole, the piecing is not complicated. The fabrics keep the projects modern but a lot of the patchwork methods are the kinds of things you'll probably have seen before: flying geese, strip-piecing, simple squares and rectangles, log cabin, chevrons and snowball blocks. The snowflake tree skirt and the modern wreath table topper are two of the standout projects for me, but modern fabric lovers will be hard pushed to resist any of the offerings here.
