There are seven projects featuring appliqué and 13 featuring piecing techniques, but before you get to the quilts there are nearly 40 pages of very helpful tips and ideas on choosing a palette and colour range, and sorting and storing your stash. There is also a section about creating 'slabs' which are a way of making your own fabric using even the smallest of scraps. There are a number of colour options provided for the quilts, so you can see at a glance which look you want. These are easy and quick patterns that will make great gifts for a new baby or young child.
