I wanted to buy this book as soon as I knew it was in the works. Camille just has a certain something that appeals to almost everyone. In addition to the cutest darn smile, she has a talent for making things look so easy. Read her blog Simplify for awhile and you will see what I mean. Whether it’s designing, quilting, writing or photography, she rocks at it. You can tell that she loves what she does. Maybe that’s the secret!
The book has a great mix of small and large projects. Tabletoppers, pillows, baby blankets, wall hangings, quilts....they’re all in here.
The patterns are described very well and the diagrams are clear and concise. I always love it when the designer takes the time to illustrate how to efficiently cut out pieces from a fat quarter. The patterns make great use of pre-cuts.
Gorgeous. No other word for it. Whether it’s a close up of a quilt or cute little boy toes sticking out from under a quilt, everything is styled beautifully and photographed impeccably.
Immediately Fell In Love With
Raw edge binding. I’ve never seen this before and I love it! For a casual style of quilt, it adds a great extra bit of texture.
My First Project Will Be
Coming Home tabletopper. I have some Fig Tree Breakfast at Tiffany’s charm squares that would be perfect!
And if you don’t want a red & white polka dot chair after flipping through this book, there is something seriously wrong with you :-)
