Jeni takes the maths out of quilting
and makes it easier for you to create
amazing designs with half-square triangles.


After she has shared her cutting menus
so that you can create without having to do
the maths,
she then builds on this with 12 beautiful
step-by-step designs.


Each of the designs is presented in it's finished format.
You are given details of how the look was created.
You are then taken through the materials required,
the cutting required and how to assemble the HST's.
From there you are given details of how to add the borders.
At each stage there are pictures to guide you on your way.


I love the modern designs and colours that have been
used in each of the projects.
However these are only guides so you can make
your own look for your own taste.


Jeni takes you through everything you need to know
about colour & scale.


The book is jam packed with different designs
that you can use with your HST's.
As a newbie to quilting I found this invaluable.
I love the fact that you can make the projects
or use the information to create your own designs.


I love the section on Patchwork Play.
It's so much fun and seems such an easy method
to create a unique quilt of your own.
I also love the fact that you get projects
to be able to try new methods out.


The block party is filled with an amazing
array of block designs.
It has so many designs the only problem you
might have is trying to pick which blocks you
want to start off with. 


I think this book is one I'll be using time and again.
I can't wait to get started on my project
and seeing how mine comes out.
My fingers are crossed and I am very hopeful
that it will turn out well.
I am sure it will with all the clear and easy to understand
instructions.
