In this beautifully illustrated, accessible primer, Lynette Jensen, nationally recognized quilting author, 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!). You'll find 16 Color Play variation quilts that reveal the versatility of Jensen's designs in different colors, 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 contemporary quilters with interesting professions, and strategies for how each one fits quiltmaking time into her busy schedule!
