I was super happy when I got home after a weekend away with my hubby…I had a new quilting book in the mail…
Simply Charming by Tara Lynn Darr. Tara is the designer behind Sew Unique Creations.
It’s a nice book using charm squares (5″ square pieces of fabric). All of the patterns are for small projects no bigger than 25″ x 25″. It’s filled with great tips and the directions seems to be well written.
My problem with the book is that it is simple too basic and too easy for what I am looking for.
I was hoping for something new or challenging but I didn’t find that in this book. If you are looking for small projects, I would be inclined to suggest patterns from Lori Smith…no, they don’t use charm squares but they are more interesting and more challenging. Being I consider myself a seasoned quilter, many of these small quilts I could put together without a pattern.
I am going to give my copy of this quilting book away….if you are a beginning quilter or if you are looking for some basic quilting patterns, you’ll like the book. The pictures and layout of the book are wonderful.
