Beth Sheard shares projects that are simple to construct and given away as gifts to family, friends, and co-workers. She includes preparation techniques such as arranging basic kit tools to use and stitching illustrations showing what your final work should look like.

Projects include pillows for the bed or couch, fabric letters used in a teenager’s room or family room, and a greeting card for any occasion. In addition is a beginner quilt for anyone wanting to acquaint oneself with learning beginning quilting to move on to more advanced quilts. The easy follow instructions are easily shared to teach children or young adults the joy of creating do-it-yourself projects alone or in a group setting.

The project that stood out for me was the beginner quilt, as I love to crochet throws and have interest in quilting to add to my list hobbies. I recommend this book to people who indulge in and love do-it-yourself projects as it has many great projects to create and a great gifting opportunity.

I received this book free from the publisher Taunton Press through the Net Galley reviewer program in exchange for an unbiased opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission guidelines.
