25 Charming Projects to Make Using Classic Quilt Motifs

Hisako Arai and Yoko Sanjo


This charming collection of delightful, easy-to-make patchwork projects, originally published in Japan, is perfect for creating gifts for loved ones. Using five classic quilt patterns—simple squares, hexagons, log cabin, stars, and polygons—the projects range from pin cushions, potholders, and pillows to handbags, coin purses, and a variety of zippered cases that are quick to make. This is the perfect book for beginner quilters or veterans looking for small projects and fun ways to use up their stash.

Each project is accompanied by:

  • clear construction diagrams and full pattern templates
  • step-by-step instructions for how to cut, arrange, and sew up the project

Whether you’re a newbie or a comfortable quilter, the projects, fabrics, and designs in this book will inspire you to create not one, but many of the projects to give as wonderful gifts!
