Review: 1, 2, 3 Quilt: Shape Up Your Skills with 24 Stylish Projects

1, 2, 3 Quilt: Shape Up Your Skills with 24 Stylish Projects
1, 2, 3 Quilt: Shape Up Your Skills with 24 Stylish Projects by Ellen Luckett Baker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had some issues with 1, 2, 3 Sew–such as errors with project instructions and cutting measurements–which I was happy to see not repeated in this book.

Still in regular rotation as an office tote-bag.

The measurements for all the projects I’ve tried work and the instructions are clear and result in a good product. My 10-year-old daughter even tackled the first project (I did the slicing and pinning), and made a lovely checkerboard. My one complaint is that most of the projects are best suited to solids and many are quite basic. While yes, I am learning to quilt, the occasional bit of complexity would be a welcome break.

Still, it’s a good and accessible introduction to quilting. Highly recommended if you are considering making quilts but don’t know where to begin.
