Back Cover Information:

Step-bystep instructions.Sew easy and simple blocks that turn into beautiful quilts almost by magic with no Fairy Godmother involved! It may sound like a Quilter's Fantasy Island, but with this book as your guide you will find yourself making the fabulous quilts you've always dreamed about ---without the mountain of work you always thought it would be.

You will discover how easy it is to:

  • Choose just the right fabrics. For many quilters, finding the perfect combination of fabrics is both fun and torture. You can achieve the look you want, without feeling as though you'd been stretched over the rack. Discover the secrets of how to put pastel fabrics together for a soft and yummy quilt without turning the color scheme into mush, or how to combine strong vibrant colors without making everyone in the room dizzy. Perhaps you are looking to add a little elegance and sophistication to your quilts, or just want your favorite colors to really sparkle. Your quilts will shine with new possibilities as you choose fabrics with confidence and creativity.
  • Make simple blocks. You will be amazed. As impressive as some of these quilts look, they are actually a piece of cake to sew. Just take a look at the instructions. You will see how each quilt is actually a combination of very simple blocks. Every step is carefully explained in a straightforward and easy to sew manner. You'll also see lots and lots of illustrations, so you know exactly what to do at every stage.
  • Let the magic happen. Take the simple blocks you've make and put them together. The stunning quilt that emerges will delight you. Go from making simple and easy blocks and turn them into glorious quilts. That is magic!

Nicole C. Chambers is a quilt designer and quilting instructor known for her unique color sense and stylish quilt designs. Her clear, easy-to-follow instructions have been praised and appreciated by new and experienced quilters alike. In her last book, The Quilt Maniac's PLAYBOOK: Fuel for the Quilt Imagination, many quilters learned the secrets of how to work with colors and fabric patterns to achieve the quilts they envision. A fun guide featuring step-by-step instructions for a great collection of quilts and table runners
