What Others Are Saying
“Adams, author of the popular quilting blog, curates a collection of holiday-inspired patchwork projects, many from other big names in the quilting blogosphere. With a different choice of fabric, most of the projects wouldn't read 'holiday' at all, such as the Dresden-plate inspired baby quilt, the improvisational log cabin quilt, or the drawstring gift bags. Though some of the projects have been done to death--most quilters have seen far too many variations on patchwork bunting-- there's enough originality here to make it a worthwhile purchase.VERDICT: The emphasis is on holiday-themed modern quilting, but the projects in this book will also appeal to quilters who prefer traditional styles. “ --Library Journal
“I really appreciate the variety of projects included in Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays. I like that there are projects of every size, whether you are interested in creating something larger like a baby quilt or something smaller like a patchwork ornament. The smaller projects are noted in the Table of Contents with a green *mini project* next to the title. If you plan on making Christmas patchwork projects, Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays: 30+ Seasonal Patchwork Projects to Piece, Stitch, and Love is definitely the book you need.”
“...Too cute to resist! This book is jam packed with quilts, table settings, ornaments, and gifts galore. With over 30 sure-to-delight projects, there is something for everyone on your gift list—even you.” —McCall's Quick Quilts
