Reviews - What do customers think about Small Amish Quilt Patterns?
Excellent for beginners and experts too. Feb 15, 2007
In a spare prose the author gives us a short history of the Amish quilt and its characteristics. She then gives some how-to advice that is precious for beginners, and follows up with several patterns for crib quilts or wall hangings that have been re-sized to fit the smaller dimension, which is a great thing. She also gives actual size templates for decorative quilting.
I only wish there were more color pictures but for the price you can't expect more than color covers.
Color? Feb 8, 2003
When I buy quilting books, I really enjoy looking at the finished quilts in color. I love seeing how other people have mixed their fabric and I usually get ideas from them. There was no color in this book at all except for the front and back cover. The directions are very clear, but most patterns are for beginners.
