Review Home Sweet Quilt: Fresh, Easy Quilt Patterns From Jillily Studio, by Jill Finley is packed full of fun designs to make quilts, table toppers and wall-hangings for your home, or to give as gifts. SewCalGal is in love with EVERY project in this book. –SewCalGalHome Sweet Quilt is a beautiful collection of modem country cottage style quilts. Jill’s style is pretty and fresh, combining simple piecing and appliquÃ© to stunning effect. Many of the designs incorporate natural shapes like flowers, fruits and leaves, but all of them are striking and uplifting. She uses the spray starch technique combined with freezer paper and basting glues to create her appliquÃ©. She hand stitches a lot of her appliquÃ© but all could be done my machine if you prefer. Jill provides some great hand stitching tips though, including the use of a great product produced by her studio, Poke-A-Dots, which protect your finger like a thimble but are lightweight and smaller. All the projects are attractive and incredibly effective but I think my favorites have to be Scattered Sunshine, which incorporates a thirties style flower design along the bottom of the quilt, Posy Party, a lap quilt combining black, white and ‘pops’ of color with a simple graphic floral design, and Overture, a cheery wall hanging with a central daisy medallion, multiple pieced borders and the use of felted wool. –Popular Patchwork, February 2013 Read more From the Inside Flap See why so many quilters love the quilt patterns from Jillily Studio.
