Mini Quilts {Book Review}

Mini Quilts(fresh, fun patterns to quilt in a snap) is a book by Jodie Davis and Jayne Davis. As Jodie says in her introduction, mini quilts may be small, but they have big personalities. As many of us know, one mini quilt quickly turns into a large collection and making them is rather addictive.

Most of the techniques in Mini Quilts are designed for those with basic sewing skills. Each project is assigned a skill level, so a new sewist is able to begin with the easy patterns and work their way through to the more advanced projects.

After going through all of the sewing and quilting basics, we come to the projects. 20 delightful, 16-inch square quilt patterns. Each pattern presents step-by-step instructions for all sorts of different techniques including hand-tying, precision piecing, applique, curved piecing and more.

The last few projects in Mini Quilts actually show how to use the techniques used previously to create other projects including a bag, table runner, pillow and a quilt.

Mini Quilts is a lovely book and a great resource for learning lot’s of new techniques. Even the more experienced quilters will discover something new to practise and perfect in this book.
Mini Quilts is published by Taunton Press and available in Australia from Booktopia or Can Do Books.
