Make each quilt as unique as the loved one receiving it! Who made it a rule that all cuddly, snuggly quilts have to be odes to bunny rabbits? Anyone would love to snuggle under one of these easy-to-make quilts. The Crafty Ol’ Broads, authors of Beyond the Block, are well-known for quilting outside the box. They’ve done it again in this packed-with-projects book based on 18 quilts they have made for their own kids and grandkids. Plus, each quilt is shown again in different colors (because they’re also loving aunts and great-aunts). The instructions for each project make it simple to size the quilt to your specific need. These easy-to-make quilts won’t break your heart if they are ’loved to death,’ yet each one can be tailored to match your loved one exactly. The patterns look more complicated than they are because of value placement, so this book, with more than 40 color photos, serves as a design course, too. More challenging techniques are offered for quilters who are up for them or wanting to stretch their skills, and the ’no binding’ technique makes quick work of every project.
