Amanda Murphy, a fabric and quilt designer, has chosen to focus on celebration quilts in this first book, and has compiled a fun collection of projects designed for family and friends. The designs cover all of life's milestones and events , birth, graduation, wedding and more, including commemoration quilt pattern. I particularly like the way that each quilt has a back design as well as the top, and these all have space and ideas for personalisation.The designs are all fairly modern, and use a combination of piecing and applique. Quilted Celebrations includes a full size pull out pattern sheet for all the applique templates. There are lots of good ideas here, and I'm sure all these quilts would be fun to make and appreciated by any recepients.* Popular Patchwork *
What is better than making a quilt to give at a celebration? There is nothing more special than giving something homemade. There are 18 designs within the book that capture and celebrate milestone's something homemade. Each of the designs has a pattern for the front and the back. The back is designed to be personalised. The quilt's have step-by-step instructions and illustrations for the assembly. There are also templates in the back for the different designs like the animals on the "Welcome to the world" quilt. The designs are modern and cover most celebrations that you can think of; the thing I love the most about this book is that the designs are beautiful in themselves. You can make them for celebrations but most of them can be made for any reason. Beautiful designs you'll want to make for every celebration and more!* Crochet Addict UK *
