Temecula Quilt Company - Quirky Little Quilts: Patchwork from the Past, Projects for the Present by Sheryl Johnson






Mismatched blocks, make-do colors, planned mistakes, and happy surprises--it's all good at Temecula Quilt Company! Inspired by quilts of the nineteenth century, 15 petite patchwork quilts invite you to play with reproduction fabrics in quirky ways. Try wonky layouts, unexpected block pairings, and blends of color where anything goes. The results are instantly endearing--just like the quilts of yesteryear.



With Sheryl Johnson's "make-do" philosophy, you can use a scrappy fabric assortment to create charming, stress-free quilts that celebrate one-of-a-kind choices. Patterns are small, cute, and quick to stitch, each with a perfectly imperfect personality all its own. What a liberating way to quilt!









My Review


I am really enjoying this little quilt book and with that in mind, my quilt guild challenged us with 5 5” squares. Wow I now have great ideas to use the patterns offered here, as we are to make a small quilt!
There are fifteen different quilts offered, and I can’t wait to begin, just trying to make my final decision on which of these I want to make.
This is a keeper, and have been sharing with my friends so that they can get their own copy.

I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher That Patchwork Place, and was not required to give a positive review.
