A MUST HAVE for quilters and lovers of color. I have been a huge fan of Amanda Jean Nyberg for several years and couldn’t wait for her to put her creativity and originality together in a book for me to treasure. I pre-ordered it and rec’d it today. I have already devoured it! I had such high expectations and can joyously say that it does not disappoint!Amanda Jean and Cheryl are leaders in the online quilting community and are natural trend-setters. In Sunday Morning Quilts they manage to teach the rest of us how to take any old scraps and make them into something original and beautiful.I love their section on how to identify, define and organize scraps. Then they take you through a how-to process of making “new” fabric by joining scraps. In each of the sixteen projects, they include gorgeous pictures, clear instructions, and my favorite feature which is how to make it your own. What a great addition! That advice gets my mind spinning with all of the ways to take a purchased pattern, free tutorial,…

A Bit Disappointed! I really enjoy reading Ms. Nyberg’s blog and have made several of the quilts she has shared on it. I waited for this book with anticipation, and although I really like the majority of the quilts in it and plan to make several, I am a bit disappointed. The first quilt pattern doesn’t begin until page 66. The majority of the book (a total of 140 pages) is devoted to information that can be found in almost every other quilt book on the market. Basic quilting techniques, “what is a scrap”, color theory, how to wash/block a quilt etc. I realize that there are novice quilters who also buy books, but as a more experienced quilter, I would really like (for once) to buy a quilt pattern book that is devoted to quilt patterns. That is why I buy a quilt book and to find a large portion of a book devoted to information I also find in every other book I have, sorta makes me feel like I have been “cheated”. Again, the patterns are great, but I sure wish there were more of them!
