In this beautifully illustrated, accessible guide Lynette Jensen offers. 25 quilt projects - all created by Jensen exclusively for this new book - and all of which are incredibly easy to start and fast to finish (some in just one night or over one weekend!) Readers will find 16 Colour Play variation quilts that reveal the versatility of Jensen's designs in different colours and plenty of charming companion "House Dressing" projects like pillows, dust ruffles, fabric-trimmed rugs, tablecloths, napkins and more. Jensen draws on more than 20 years of experience in quiltmaking, interior decorating and fabric design to share her know-how on the easiest quiltmaking methods, such as simple rotary cutting, fast applique, and quilting shortcuts. She also offers tips on how to carve the maximum quilting time out of each day and even how to put together a quilting travel kit. Sprinkled throughout are real-life portraits of contemporay quilters with interesting professions, and strategies for how each one fits quiltmaking time into her busy schedule!
