This week we are reviewing two titles that will interest Quilters.
Just Your Style by Gudrun Erla includes designs to make 7 different quilts. What we love about this book is that each quilt is shown in two different colourways, so whether your preference is for bright and modern quilts, or more traditional colours, you will find a design that suits your style. Each quilt has clear instructions, and step by step diagrams to guide you through the process. Each quilt includes directions for making it in a variety of sizes ranging from Lap Quilt through to Queen Sized.
Booktopia has a google preview on their site, so you can take a look inside the book and see more of the designs. We recommend this book to anyone who loves to make quick pieced quilts.
