The fifth volume of this ongoing series focuses on medallion quilts, a traditional quilt design that is experiencing a renaissance among modern quilters. The goal of the series is to provide quilters with comprehensive information about quilting techniques and history via a series of lessons that build upon one another. The coverage is broad, including tutorials, historical background, projects, and tips for better quilting, and the authors cover everything from types of medallion quilts to tips for piecing borders to techniques for designing medallion quilts that are balanced and attractive. Both Hargrave and Hargrave-Jones are experienced quilt designers and authors, and their mastery of the topic shines throughout. The projects are easy to customize based on personal taste-the authors purposely used traditional fabrics for a timeless effect-and by the end of the book, quilters will have a repertoire of skills that will allow them to create their own custom medallion quilts. VERDICT Quilters of all skill levels have much to gain from this thoughtfully presented, engaging, and educational book.* Library Journal USA *
