Quilter's looking for fun, fresh "aahhh-inspiring" projects of keepsake quality will love the quirky, whimsical style in Happy Quilts. Lovable softies from the quilt designs can be made from matching fabrics so that they look as if they've jumped out of the quilts themselves.
Each quilt is a combination of piecing and applique with directions suited to beginners or intermediate quilters. As shown, the designs are all eye-catching and bright, but readers can choose their own colour scheme from soft pastels to even graphic combinations of reds, whites, greys and blacks. Quilters will enjoy the satisfaction of creating something totally unique that's leaps and bounds above mass-produced bedding. Whether their room theme is dolls or robots, dolphins or dinosaurs, Happy Quilts has crafters covered.
