Books on Monday – Simply Triangles

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:

  1. Introduction
  2. Triangle Quilt Basics  (This covers supplies, fabric preparation, cutting and various techniques, including the dreaded Y-seam)
  3. Triangles to Stars (7 projects)
  4. Triangles to Daisies (2 projects)
  5. Triangles to Pinwheels (2 projects)
  6. Template Patterns
  7. About the Author
  8. Resources

Stay tuned. Maybe I’ll actually make about 5 of these!

Quilt on!
