Kid-friendly themes and eye-catching colors fill the pages of this charming book aimed at intermediate to experienced quilters. What sports-minded child could resist the Home Run, Touchdown, Race Day, or Dreams of Gold (gymnastics) quilts? Animal lovers will delight in the parading elephants, carousel horse, polar bear, and mischievous kittens eyeing the goldfish bowl. And fairy-tale fans are sure to adore the magnificent castle design. Each project features excellent directions, thorough colored templates, a good color photo of the finished quilt, and helpful tips on fabric selection. The opening section provides an overview of all the necessary techniques, including an easy approach to appliqué (though, as the introduction warns, the projects are geared toward a more advanced skill level). Quilters seeking truly unique designs to thrill a child will find an abundance here, and, in the words of the authors, their creations may become "cherished quilts for the child inside every adult." --Amy HandyAbout the Author:
