Today we are looking at another older book from my collection, Simply Triangles: 11 Deceptively Easy Quilts Featuring Stars, Daisies & Pinwheels by Barbara H. Cline. The link below is an Amazon Associate link and the book is also available in a Kindle version for about $10 less than the print version.
This is the first book by Barbara H. Cline I purchased, but not the first I’ve reviewed. I reviewed her book Diamond Chain Quilts: 10 Skill-Building Projects • Dynamic Star, Daisy & Pinwheel in an earlier post. And, yes, I like the looks of her quilts. I may need to make some soon.
When I first purchased this book, it was with some trepidation, because triangles seemed a bit challenging. Now that I’ve got a little more experience, I’m about ready to try some more, so I pulled this book out. (Okay, let’s be honest, I also needed something to review today! I admit it.)
Ms. Cline’s directions seem (I only say seem because I haven’t followed them and actually made anything yet not because I think they are deceptive or anything) very straightforward and easy to follow. The sections of the book are as follows:
- Triangle Quilt Basics (This covers supplies, fabric preparation, cutting and various techniques, including the dreaded Y-seam)
- Triangles to Stars (7 projects)
- Triangles to Daisies (2 projects)
- Triangles to Pinwheels (2 projects)
- Template Patterns
- About the Author
Stay tuned. Maybe I’ll actually make about 5 of these!
