The latest book from best-selling authors Pam and Nicky Lintott doesn’t disappoint! Beautiful quilts, unique patterns, clear instructions, and no less than 18 different designs to make…
Create spectacular quilts in no time with these 18 gorgeous patterns from expert quilters Pam and Nicky Lintott. Well-known for their popular series of books focused on using pre-cut fabrics and jelly rolls, they’ve now turned their attention to quilting with specialist rulers, aimed at making it easier for quilters to cut their fabric pieces quickly and efficiently.
The book focuses on three distinct types of ruler, all made by Creative Grids (although other makes of speciality rulers can be used): the ‘2 Peaks In 1’ multi-size non-slip triangle ruler, the ‘Kaleidoscope’ double-strip ruler and the ‘Flying Geese’ multi-size triangle ruler. All of these rulers have different purposes and are designed to enable fast and accurate cutting of specific shapes.
If you’re new to quilting, you’ll find these rulers a huge help when preparing the fabric pieces for your chosen quilt design. Cutting triangles and measuring precise angles can be a nightmare, particularly if you’re inexperienced, but specialist rulers make this task so straightforward. If you’re serious about making quilts, getting one of these rulers will prove to be a very wise investment!
The quilt designs in the book are really varied and original. All of the techniques are included and the coloured illustrations for each step make the instructions so easy to follow. There’s an array of patterns, sizes and colours to suit every taste, so you’re sure to find a quilt you’ll want to start immediately! Some of my favourites are the beautiful Bajan Sunset quilt (shown in the banner above), the Flight To Paradise quilt (shown on the front cover of the book), Starry Skies (see left) and Scattered Squares (see above).
