Create a few quilt blocks, put them together, and stand back for exciting results! The individual blocks are striking, but it's the quilt settings that create sheer magic. Easier than they look, each of these 10 projects features either one repeating block or two alternating blocks. Where the blocks intersect, the lines blur from one block to the next, creating gorgeous and unexpected designs.

  • Projects are primarily lap-sized, requiring a smaller investment of time and fabric
  • Quilters of all skill levels can create eye-catching projects
  • Styles are traditional and elegant, great for gift giving and home decor

About the Author:

Karen Sievert began her quiltmaking journey in 1997 when her sister, Barbara, dragged her into a quilt shop, firmly stating that she needed a hobby! Immediately hooked, Karen has been quilting, designing, and teaching ever since. An award-winning quilter, Karen states that what she loves most about quilting is the friendships she's formed with other quilters: friendships that have sustained her through the many moves she's made due to her husband's military career.
Karen currently resides in Gainesville, Virginia, with her husband, Vince, and her three children, Wayne, Shannah, and Travis.

Review:

Another delightful quilt book has been released this spring called Better Together by Karen Sievert. SewCalGal recommends this book is a "must have" for any quilter. It is a perfect book for quilters of all levels, sharing insights on fabric selection, quilting basics, machine quilting, and more. This book contains ten patterns to make beautiful quilts, each using two complimentary blocks. There are many beautiful quilts out there made with two blocks, but Karen does an excellent job showing how to make spectacular quilts using two blocks! SewCalGal predicts that there are going to be many quilt show winners, in future quilt shows, where quilters benefit from insights shared by Karen Sievert!

Techniques used are based on rotary cutting and traditional piecing methods, with easy to follow instructions for the beginner quilter. But the insights on machine quilting, block placement, and border settings help to move a beginner-intermediate quilter to an advanced quilter. Plus oodles of tips and tricks are throughout the book, of interest to quilters of all levels. Personally, I loved the quilting suggestions and excellent photography that showed the high quality quilting. Even the cover of this book shows an inspirational quilt, yet the photography captures the amazing machine quilting, not just the amazing beauty of the quilt! --SewCalGal.blogspot.com--for sewing quilting, and embroidery enthusiasts
