Little Quilts by Sarah Fielke & Amy Lobsiger

IMG_4631This lovely little book flew through my letter box yesterday, after signing up for a Little Quilt swap over on instergram.  I fell in love with the adorable mini quilts that could grow into much larger designs and being small are achievable!  Seven little quilts have been designed by Sarah, Amy also designed 7 and the final quilt is a collaboration.

There is lots of information on the piecing process, from foundation piecing,needle turning, english paper piecing, so a great book for someone wanting to explore new techniques and as the quilts are small – the results are so achievable.  All the patterns at the back are full size, so no need to dash out to enlarge templates.

There are lots of tips and time saving short cuts, some little quilts are 1 block, some are made up of several blocks.  Its a great collaboration between 2 wonderful quilting ladies and they have st up a flickr group and pinterest board for the little quilts.  Now all I have to do is choose which design I am going to make for the swap!
