   Makes 3- D easy to understand
It will take some practice to perfect your technique of sewing with triangles, but the results are so cool, even for the beginner.
   Not what I expected.
This book is filled with small projects, each with a slightly different outcome. Not all appliques are created equal. It's just that I expected it to be a few dozen." What is included is nice, but I think the title is misleading.
   Many Errors in the first pattern we tried
It's a great book, and the patterns are very interesting. The instructions are very good, and the sewing tips are also very good. However, we did not discover the errors in our first choice project until about half way through.
I have not finished quilting the top, but am in the process of cutting pieces. This book has good instructions and a number of patterns, said Sara Fields, a spokeswoman for the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. I read the instructions twice before I felt comfortable cutting, but think this will be a success, she said.
   Requires a lot of cutting and sewing
What's more, he said, "the author presented an interesting concept." However, projects will require more time and precision sewing than other methods of constructing the quilts. She also presented different color ways and quilt sizes for the projects.
I have purchased at least 20 quilting books in the past year alone. This is far and away the best of the lot, Tunick said. Clear, precise and easy to follow instructions. There are no humorous little quips, that I find so distracting, Bruno says. Clear instructions.
   Can't wait to start.
The book is great, and I'm excited to be working with Pauley again. The instructions are very simple and with the colored layouts it's just a matter of getting the block count correct. He urged employees to be careful not to stretch the bias edges of the envelopes.
   Not Simplifying Construction, but Multiplying Opportunities for Inaccuracy
Every time you cut out a piece and sew it with another there is an opportunity for inaccuracy in cutting, sewing and pressing, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, inventor and former postal worker. By trying to Y-seams she is instead forcing you to sew MANY other seams which eliminates opportunities to sew inaccurately. The second technique interrupts your fabric's print which is important when you are trying for a 3D effect. If you have more intersections to sew through, you may not get smooth lines. In my 55+ years of quiltmaking I've seen many attempts to avoid Y-seams, but this one is worse than most.
   Lack of instructions
The book is inoperative, and instructions are not available. It's a completely triangle quilt, which I didn't know. It doesn't make any sense why I would have to sew 10 triangles together all of the same color to make a strip that is slightly larger than an attachable piece of paper. I don't know where the simplified part of this book is. I love the patterns, but they are too cumbersome and not enough instructions. It's a shame because Ms. Berry's Bargello quilt books are excellent and I have made many bargello quilts with those books. I however am going to have to reinvent the wheel and come up with patterns to do this quilt but I'm not going to sew more than 800 individual triangles for anyone.
