The Weekend Quilter by Rosemary Wilkinson

44135452. sx318

I wanted to write this post with proof of my use of it. I found the instructions in the book so straightforward that I wanted to deploy them, make an actual quilt, pose it appropriately and then take pictures. Then winter was coming to an end, and I convinced myself that I would work on it in the hotter months and then by the following winter, I could do all the aforementioned things.
This year, proper summer seems to have completely skipped us by. We might have a few warmer days, but it is not enough for someone who was banking on a month or so of heat. This is not an excuse per se, but just a reflection. The bottom line was that I saw this book as an ARC then purchased my own copy because there is no other way to actually follow all the suggestions.

I have waited long enough to review it (almost one year), so I decided it was high time I talked about it.
This is a simple book with a few quilting tips and ways to make quilts that can be accomplished in shorter periods. It is colourful, and the suggestions are sufficiently varied to make a beginner like me feel like I got a good deal in picking up ideas.
I would recommend it to anyone on the lookout for quilting books.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
