Debbie Mumm understands how hard it can be to fit time for quilting into a busy day-- but she also knows how important it is to find time for the craft you love! Her combination of timesaving methods and delightful designs makes it possible for anyone to start and finish a charming quilt in one week or less. Debbie's quilt patterns are sold throughout the United States under the name Mumm's the Word. This is the first time her designs have been published in a book.
With the rising popularity of quilting, there is a demand for both inspirational and instructional quilting books. Here, Mumm sets aside needle for pen to advocate her techniques and designs. Promoting the use of a rotary cutter and mat over scissors, she tries to simplify cutting and assembly. The designs are fresh and cute, but the dimensions are for wall display only. Conversions for enlarging patterns are tucked away in the introduction. The terminology used and other assumptions make this book a little complicated for a beginner, despite the author's tables of instructions and other shortcuts. Though the designs may be inspirational, the instructions are still complicated. A supplementary purchase for large public libraries only.-- Karen Ellis, Victoria P . L . , Tex.
