Library Journal Review

This volume is recommended as a beginner's book for parents who are not themselves quilters but who want to learn quilting along with their children. The host of HGTV's Simply Quilts, Anderson aims this simple instructional project book at children ages nine to 14 and emphasizes safety in working with tools like rotary cutters and hot irons. Included are seven projects, including small quilts, pillows, and colorful wall hangings. The tips for quilting with children and the illustrated instructions for using the rotary cutter are alone worth the price of the book. Consider for public library quilting collections.
