Library Journal Review

Fresh designs and enchanting colors make this title, originally published in Italy (R.C.S. Libri, 1996), stand out from the current crowd of "quilting-for-baby" books. Projects include a number of small crib quilts along with ideas for using crib quilt motifs to make other projects such as pajama holders, pillows, bags, wall hangings, etc. Fully one-third of the book is devoted to quilting techniques and design "how-to." An excellent source of ideas for the intermediate quilter. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
