It's always nice to see a new quilt book that presents something really different. This book is dedicated to wedges and ways in which to use them. The book is divided into Basic Round Construction, Round Variations and Beyond Rounds. In the introduction, you'll see photos from the Volckening collection of quilts. You'll discover wedge basics, rulers, shapes, possibilities and formulas. In the first chapter, you'll see all the essentials, information and avoiding the pitfalls of construction. The projects hone your new found skills. Instructions are clear and easy to follow with great photos and line drawings. In chapter two, you'll learn some variations on the theme. These tend to be fabric oriented i.e. scrappy, two colour wedges and not variations on using wedges in innovative design ways. Another three projects follow. Chapter three is about designing wedges that are not in the round. There is no design instruction as such, this section goes straight into five more fantastic projects. That's ten projects in all of varying sizes. The book finishes with some basic quilting techniques such as machine applique and setting in a circle. There are some ideas for quilting. The afterword explains the creative making of the Sacred Heart quilt. A very enjoyable and informative book on quilting wedges.-- Karen Platt * www.karenplatt.co.uk *
