If you’re already a fan of British quilt designer Jo Colwill of Cowslip Workshops, you know what charming, sweet quilts she creates. If you haven’t seen her work yet, you owe it to yourself to take a look at this, her second book.
Patchwork Quilts & Gifts includes 10 large and 10 smaller patchwork projects, with designs appropriate for beginning to intermediate quilters. There are also a basic instructions section and technique tips scattered throughout the volume. All directions are given in both inches and centimeters, so each quilter can use the measurements with which she’s comfortable.
What I love most about this book is the folksy, old-fashioned atmosphere it creates. From the whimsical, vintage-inspired quilts and smaller projects, to the hand-drawn diagrams, Jo’s book is like a visit with a knowledgeable quilting friend who is generous with her talent and time.
