Quilting in No Time: 50 step-by-step weekend projects made easy by Emma Hardy

Quilting in No Time brings you 50 fantastic, easy-to-follow projects for quilts. At a time when store-bought soft furnishings are becoming increasingly expensive, this great book offers high quality, homemade alternatives at a fraction of the cost.Packed with brilliant ideas for using up scraps of fabrics, original appliqué designs, fun blocks to stitch together and excellent motifs, this is the must-have guide to quilting gorgeous items for the home. Every project comes with gorgeous step-by-step illustrations, plus ideas for variations to add your own personal touch to the finished piece. Projects include a picnic blanket, a cosmetics bag, place mats and coasters, a tea cosy, a duvet cover, a child’s play mat, a handbag. and an apron, amongst many others. Also included is a useful techniques section with expert advice on fabric selection, binding, sashing, and more.
Nice book but title is a little misleading! Several of the 50 projects were just duplicate patterns filed under a different name, what was a beach bag in one section became a tote bag in another and a laundry bag in yet another catagory. Same holds true for a crib blanket that became a wall hanging and then a rug! Knock the title down to maybe "30 Step-by-step Weekend Projects" and it would probably be more accurate. There are some very cute projects that can indeed be finished in a weekend, even for a novice quilter. So even with just 30 projects I'll be stitching for a while!
I bought this quilt book for a particular quilt in the book & have enjoyed making a couple of them. It is a small book with just a handful of patterns, but it covers a wide range of sizes & types of quilts. There are baby quilts, lap quilts, table toppers, small purses & seat cushions. Good little book at a great price.
not good
It takes me longer than the weekend to make some, but it is a great pattern book
Global Progression
I've only made 1 project from the book so far, but I plan to make more soon! I really like that the projects aren't super complicated - you get the quilted look, but you don't have to spend hours upon hours of work on each project. I'm hoping to use several of the projects in the sewing class that I teach. My only complaint would be that I wish there were a few more pictures/drawings in the instructions. Other than that, I'm very happy with the book.
I own a ton of quilting books and am always looking for some new inspiration and know not to expect too much from a 'quick and easy' approach to quiltmaking, but this book completely fell flat. I was hoping for some new inspiration for quick quilts but found nothing that I haven't seen a million times before. This book is totally uninspired and would give it 2 stars only because if this is the very first quilt book you ever buy it would be fine (not great or even good, but fine).
Very pleased with book and transaction
Love all the projects, very easy to follow directions!
