There are many adorable quilts in Warm Welcome to fall in love with, and best of all they’re easy to make! Two of the projects in this book use fusible appliqué and are very simple for the beginning quilter. Baby Bows and Twinkle Toes is absolutely my favorite quilt in this book. Black Mary Jane shoes are appliquéd on a pieced top of scattered bow tie blocks. How fun would it be to sew up this cute quilt and send it off to the new arrival with a shiny pair of Mary Janes! If the new arrival is a boy, just change the style of the shoes to fit.  Be creative.

The cover quilt, Gift Block, is one of three designs that Mary cleverly used prairie points to give character and dimension to the quilt. In this quilt, she makes the sailboat look like it is being unveiled from a beautiful gift box. The propeller and tail of an airplane and the flag on the top of a tent also use prairie points. My other favorite quilt in this book is the Nine-Patch Star which alternates nine-patch blocks and triangle blocks to effortlessly create a large diamond and a star in the middle of the quilt. The finished quilt looks like you worked really hard, but is really very easy to make.

Of the 17 quilt projects in this book, I’m sure you will find many that will become your favorites. Use different color combinations and prints to give each quilt a new look and start sewing now to store up for those unexpected arrivals!


From Midwest Book Review

Warm Welcome
follows up on the Sweet and Simple Baby Quilts bestseller and offers a new selection of original quilts from Mary Hickey—some 17 projects small, quick and easy enough for beginning quilters. Basic piecing and a few machine applique projects make for a fine selection of fun baby quilt ideas perfect for newcomers to quilting.


From Barbara Rhoades, "Jackie of All Trades," amazon.com

I need 36 hours in one day to work on all the quilts in Warm Welcome that I want to make. Oh, where do I start? With 17 quilts to choose from, it will be hard to pick one.

A 16-page section on the basics of quilting begins the book. Things like what foot to use, how to appliqué, bind, and tag are among the hints and how-tos you will find here. Each project begins with a paragraph about the quilts, followed by a material and cutting list. A page is devoted to a photo of the finished quilt and the block and finished quilt size are also given. Making the blocks is explained next and graphics help to show what is being sewn. Finishing the quilts is pretty much left up to your individual tastes and desires but the area in the basics sections on preparing to quilt gives a fair overview of what to do.

Between the dominoes, tents, airplanes, kittens, shoes and rainbows--to name a few--I will be in 7th heaven making quilts for the next few months! There is even a basket pattern that is made from strips, so no curves to deal with. Plus the rest are made with strips and triangles; no difficult or odd pieces unless you count appliqué figures.

Either way, these quilts are perfect for beginners or a guild making charity quilts. I will be sure to take my copy to my guild.
