Booklist Review

For crafters who love instant-gratification projects, fashioning a quilt is almost out of the question, the work required too long-term and intricate. U.K.-based quilter Payne gets it, forestalling any notion of quilting-dropouts by focusing on quilt building-block shapes: squares, triangles, and circles. She packs a wealth of information intended for beginners into the first chapter, explaining terms like jelly rolls and layer cakes (nothing edible!). She also advises on choosing colors and emphasizes the much-needed accuracy of cutting, sewing, and pressing, all accompanied by close-up, step-by-step color photographs. The 15 designs themselves follow a similar pattern, with plenty of tips (e.g., remember thimbles are an option) and alternate layouts featured where appropriate. The biggest plus of this very accessible how-to on patchwork and quilting are the smaller projects that can be finished quickly, from a French braid table runner to a quilted handbag.--Barbara Jacobs Copyright 2019 Booklist
