Right away, Imer cautions that this book assumes a working knowledge of quilting. Economically, she refers readers elsewhere for more details about techniques, both basic and advanced.
At first glance, Quilt Petite might appear too child-oriented. This could be due to the abundance of 30's repros and tiny florals, or maybe just the fact that the author is a young mother. But a good long look reveals a wider range of projects.
There's a dolly sleeping bag at 15.25"×18.5". It was customized for a specific Ikea doll's bed, but is easily adaptable for other sizes. There are several small wall hangings. "Nine Patch" (21.25"×21.25") takes an old standard but downplays the contrast, resulting in a more unusual variation. "Nebula" (16.5"×16.5") is very sophisticated, with 9 levels of shading and curved quilting lines that create a heavenly swirling effect. "Scattered Stars" (17"×17") is a medley of different sizes of paper-pieced stars. It can be as babyish or mature as your heart and stash allow.
There's lots more, involving pompoms, lace, ruffles, appliqués, English Paper Pieced hexies, diamonds, and yes, more florals.
This is a darling of a book that can be both sweet and sophisticated. What a surprise it is to "hear" from Turkey, via the author and the publishing house TUVA. Welcome to you both, and please ......more!
