Library Journal Review

Mini quilts are all the rage in the quilting blogosphere-but if you're not using them as a decorative wall hanging or a doll blanket what do you do with them? Jodie Davis, along with her stepmother Jayne, became interested in mini quilts as a means of learning new techniques. Their seventh book together showcases a wide variety of techniques, including precision piecing, decorative machine stitching, fabric painting, faux trapunto, and foundation paper piecing. Each mini showcases a different learning objective (cleverly highlighted in a "what you'll learn" section of the pattern) and includes straightforward, illustrated instructions that teach the method. The final chapter solves the problem of what to do with mini quilts: pillows are the most logical choice but there are also patterns for a tote bag and two table runners, as well as for a larger-scale version of one of the quilts. VERDICT Quilters seeking a low-risk way to try something new will appreciate the variety in this collection. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
