Non-Fiction Review: Super-Quick Colorful Quilts

Super-Quick Colorful Quilts by Wilkinson Rosemary
Super-Quick Colorful Quilts: 35 Vibrant Designs for Fast Quilts
by Wilkinson Rosemary

5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

This quilting book gives instructions for 35 gorgeous quilt designs. The illustrations and photographs clearly demonstrate each design, and the instructions are easy to follow through each step. There are some general instructions in the beginning of the book about how to choose fabric, cut shapes, add binding, and quilt by hand or by machine. This is excellent for beginners!

The quilt designs are divided into sections with “Fresh Colors, Vivid Colors, Bright Colors, Pastel Colors, and Primary Colors”, but each design could be used with any color or pattern that the quilter desires. Each design is shown with 5 different options for fabric alternatives and color schemes that match or work well with the type of design.
I especially like the illustrations that clearly show each design. It makes it really easy to visualize how each piece in the quilt fits together. Each quilt design has several diagrams that show exactly how to piece together the seams and add decorative features.

The designs feel fresh and modern, but also get their inspiration from traditional quilt designs. Each quilt has something special about it that makes it different, like adding buttons, hearts, or brightly colored threads.

I enjoyed the friendly advice like “Remember, it’s meant to be cuddly, not perfect!” This book makes quilting fun!
