Barbara Rhoades: April 2013
I have yet to meet a book written by Lynette Jensen that I didn’t like. This one is no exception. In it, she shows how to create 26 different blocks. I gave up counting how many ways I could put these blocks together to create different quilts. The patterns show a quilt using several of the blocks with a finished size and a fabric/supply list. The cutting list and written instructions are clear and have lots of graphics for those of us who are more visual learners. The best part is that quilting suggestions are provided as I never know what might look best and always am glad when the authors give suggestions. There are 14 specific patterns but with the 26 blocks you can switch them out and create more than that. The given patterns include throws, wall hangings, table runner, full-sized quilts, pot holders and a tote bag. If you are an earth tone person like I am, this will fill your quilting needs in a wide range of projects.
