"If you can sew a straight seam on a sewing machine, you can make any of these quilts in a weekend," says Leslie Linsley. For beginners and veteran quiltmakers alike, this timeless and time-saving collection allows modern craftspeopleto share in a much-loved American tradition. Includes step-by-step instructions for 19 quilts. 12 pages of color photographs; diagrams and charts throughout.

Designed for the beginning, intermediate, or impatient quilter, 19 pieced-quilt projects are featured in The Weekend Quilt. Carefully chosen for their simplicity, they lend themselves to the strip-piecing method which is the key to their quick assembly. Good color photographs show the finished product. Project chapters provide clear instructions and diagrams, yardage, color suggestions, and lists of notions. Introductory chapters offer a glossary, guidelines for fabric choice, and quilting techniques. Assuming the reader can machine-sew a straight line, a top can be assembled and the quilt prepared in one weekend. However, finishing will take up other weekends, and Linsley offers basic instructions. An excellent choice for public libraries. Mary Hemmings, McGill Univ. Medical Lib., Montreal
