Library Journal Review

Fat quarters are the most common precut fabric, and many quilters have a significant stash in their materials collections. Designers Russell and Bawden are best known for their home interior makeovers, and the pieces in this book bring their clean, colorful aesthetic to small-home decor design. The projects are divided by interior space or room (e.g., living room, kitchen), and each uses one (or more) fat quarters as the focal fabric. Designs include decorated bed linens and towels, storage pieces such as a shoe bag, and items such as pillow covers. The directions are straightforward, and the projects require basic knowledge of machine sewing techniques. VERDICT Beginning sewists interested in using fat quarters to bring a pop of color to their home decor will find plenty of choices here. © Copyright 2017.
