Book Review - 'Tis the Season - Quilts and Other Comforts

"Warm your home for winter with a dozen easy folk-art quilts and accessories, including lap quilts, wall quilts, pillows, and table runners. Great tips for decorating are included!"

Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks are co-owners of The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan (Canada) and I have long been a fan of their patterns and kits. I love their whimsical, simple designs and had been eagerly awaiting the publication of their book. 

This selection of winter and Christmas quilts and decor items is fun, simple and, most important, fast. You'll be able to make holiday projects for displaying or giving in no time at all. 
The book includes various types of table runners, pillows and throws with a winter theme, although several projects would be suitable for any time of year simply by changing the fabric selection.

I especially like the tips that are given throughout the book and the information about using wool and embroidery accents in these projects. 
If you're looking for simple, quick and fun projects for the upcoming winter season, this book is for you.

I completely agree with you. Simple patterns, yet very effective - and quick enough to start now and have done by Christmas!
