Linda [Lum DeBono] corralled the designers of Henry Glass Fabrics and they came up with projects and patterns for the book. Not only does it promote the fabric company, it also promotes each designer involved, individually. Wait until you hear this! All of the designers are donating the royalties of this book to the Red Cross! There are 15 projects included in the book, from super easy to some really beautiful patchwork patterns and projects. Of course, there is a mix of patterns in the book, pillows, pocketbooks, quilts, and don't forget the placemats. As a preface to each of the projects, the designers share their thoughts on color mixing, their inspiration, scale, variety, etc. So you get to know a small bit of the stuff that makes 'em tick. The patterns and writing are fairly standard and are color illustrated. The photography is nicely done... I think that the publisher, That Patchwork Place, did a really nice job for Henry Glass and I hope the book does well for the designers, Henry Glass, and the Red Cross. I really like this book! --Excerpt from Mark Lipinski's Blog, January 2015
This book is jammed with adorable projects from a variety of designers. The talented women from Henry Glass Fabrics got together and put together a wonderful book filled with quilts that you will be drooling over! It was compiled by Linda Lum DeBono and... the designers are donating all of their royalties from the sale of this book to the Red Cross... What really impressed me with this book is the plethora of tips that the designers shared on how they use fabrics from their stash to create a new look. The information they provide is very useful and it really feels like you get to know them a little bit better also. It's worth buying the book just for that... but you will love the 15 quilts and projects that are in it also! --Sinta Borland, Pink Pincushion Blog, January 2015
With this collection, Linda Lum DeBono has compiled a very pleasing and diverse assortment of sewing projects from her fellow designers at Henry Glass and Co., the justly renowned fabric company. Rich use of pattern and colour is consistent throughout the book, despite the huge variations in style and technique, and the process of successful fabric choice and matching is the heart and soul of the book. In this way it is far more than just 15 lovely quilted projects to make, and also serves as a fascinating insight into the work of some top designers and a helpful guide to making your own harmonious fabric choices. There's a wonderful jumble of projects in here, from pillows and placemats to quilts and more, using a mix of patchwork and applique styles. A standout creation is hard to pick (which is why we suspect there are three on the cover alone!) but a personal favourite is Kim Diehl's sublime "Garden Bramble" the colours encapsulate all the joy of a crisp autumnal walk in the woods, and the quilting is very clever indeed. --Popular Patchwork, March 2015
