MEDIA REVIEWS

July 2007

These blocks are made of curved 'petals' and tightly woven fabric is recommended. Templates are given for both random and 'fussy' cutting (fussy cutting is isolating particular motifs to create different effects from the same fabric). The making of the curved seam blocks is shown with photos and instructions. The introduction to equipment, fabric preparation and finishing is easy to read with many useful tips. There are 9 projects, each prefaced by photographs and explanations of her choice of fabrics. One of these quilts was inspired by Jenny Joseph's poem 'When I am old I will wear purple' and features a red had with 3 dimensional flowers. A gallery of quilts, in vivid colours, reflects her home in New Zealand.

Helen uses the simple Wheel of Mystery block to create stunning curvy quilt designs. Don't be put off by the curved seams - if you're an accurate cutter and piecer then the block will not be a problem. Helen shares tips and tricks with you and step-by-step instructions are given for cutting and piecing the block so you are ready to use it in various settings. There are nine projects for you to try, each with a different block placement, and a quilt gallery shows you how you can experiment with other design ideas. The bold and bright fabrics which Helen has used lend themselves perfectly to this block and have resulted in a collection of stunning quilts. If you are looking for something new different to try then this is book for you and the great versatility of the block means that you are more than likely to find a design which suits your style, and you may even end up surprising yourself.
