What’s the most important part of your quilting presentation to you? For some, it’s the pattern itself, while others may be more focused on how finishing elements complete everything. As we all know, quilters have so much to be aware of when it comes to making a quality quilt, and the best way to get better at the elements are through learning experiences. When it comes to the corners of a quilt, few are quite as skilled at designing them as Donna Lynn Thomas, author of Flip Your Way to Fabulous Quilts: Take Folded Corners to New Heights. You’ll be amazed at how clean your next quilt pattern looks once you apply her methods to one of the 14 impressive patterns she includes! Make something as simple as a triangle to something as complex as a series of pinwheels, all with the finesse of a master quilter.
What left me so impressed with this book was not only the original designs by Thomas, but the way in which she organized them. After a brief introduction, readers are given a quality education on the way to properly fold fabric corners and use the technique to make more intricate patterns. The color illustrations along with the easy-to-follow instructions make this book a winner from the start.
After readers are more comfortable applying the technique, they can choose from a series of patterns which are separated into three categories, “Try Me Quilts”, “Grow with Me Quilts”, and “Master Me Quilts”. This helps guide readers who are unsure of their skill level to see what patterns are giving them the best challenge, as well as helping them learn the process. Each and every design in Flip Your Way to Fabulous Quilts is gorgeous, so there’s no reason quilters in any particular level will feel any less excited about their results.
