Subtitled 15 bed runners, table toppers and wall hangings, this book is for all those who want to make smaller quilts - quicker to make and just as lovely as full-size quilts. Kim shows her great sense of design and colour for the contemporary home. As always with CT Publishing, great layout, great book design with easy to use instructions and super photos. It makes the quilt construction very easy to follow. Chunky Monkey is my favourite design, but I liked them all.
Review Australian Homespun - April 17, 2012
"What's a gal to do when all the beds (and most of the walls) have been covered in quilts, when every friend and relative has a quilt - but she still wants to keep stitching? Kim Schaeffer has published a book of 15 quilt designs in an unusual shape: long and skinny. We're talking 22x86in, 30x90in and the like. These quilts have been designed as decorative pieces for stairwells and doors and practical items for use as table runners, a throw on the back of a sofa, or a bed runner to keep your toes warm. They're fast and fun to make, allowing you the opportunity to experiment with colours and techniques, and, of course, they make fabulous gifts, without the need to invest the time and effort required of a full bed-size quilt. Kim's projects include simple patchwork and, in some cases, fun and funky applique."
