New York Beauty Simplified - 02/20/2012
Reviewer: Annette Mira-Bateman from Online Quilt Magazine
This book already has me feeling good about it even before I have finished the introduction. The technique is “very untraditional and we are going to break some rules” we are told. Linda goes on: “It is my opinion that quilting should be FUN and not stressful.” I can’t wait to get started! Linda Hahn’s book has 21 projects of different sizes. There are numerous possibilities for design changes. She also includes suggested quilting patterns. The simplified New York Beauty block featured in this book has just one row of points, but with Linda Hahn’s clever use of color, fabrics and design she is able to demonstrate a huge array of very different styles of quilt. There will be something for everyone in this book. The instructions are clear, with photographs and illustrations to make these techniques easy to follow. Her troubleshooting hints cover a lot of ground. - By Annette Mira-Bateman from www.QuiltBlockoftheMonthClub.com, Online Quilt Magazine – Vol. 2 No. 10
