Little Quilts {Book Review + Giveaway CLOSED}

The newest book, Little Quilts, by Sarah Fielke and Amy Lobsiger is filled with absolute cute. It includes 15 little quilt projects, made using a variety of techniques.




The quilts are all lovely, unique and a little bit quirky – I love them all. As I flicked through the pages I knew that I wanted to make each and every quilt in this book. The hardest part will be to choose which to make first, though I could just start at the beginning and work my way through.

The projects are beautifully photographed with excellent step by step instructions.

Little Quilts - What a Star by Sarah Fielke

Little Quilts - Apple Orchard by Amy Lobsiger

The Techniques section at the rear of the book, covers all of the basic techniques used to create these quilts. Little Quilts includes a little bit of just about everything. Basic piecing, foundation piecing, applique, machine quilting, hand quilting and embroidery.

Little Quilts - Honeycomb by Sarah Fielke

The Templates section includes full size templates which, I think, is just perfect. There’s nothing worse than having to play with the printer settings to get the right size for a project.

Little Quilts is a wonderful addition to the home quilt book library and would make the perfect gift for someone who not only likes to quilt, but loves to make smaller, faster projects.

  2. I make clothing most often - the biggest reward for the littlest amount of effort I have found. BUT it is time to start making other things for myself, and the first thing on the list is a lap quilt!

  23. Sarah's designs are all fabulous but I must admit to shying away from big projects as I find them intimidating. This book hits the right note for me - small, doable projects with enough of a challenge to make for beautiful and inspiring results.

  63. I love projects like buntings, cushions, bags or quilts, that I can personalise with the recipient's name or with the silhouette of something significant. It could be their dog, a violin, a cupcake etc, anything that lets me share a connection with them, to know that I appreciate their interests :) These are the kind of crafty presents that never get thrown away!
