You can almost see the California sunshine in Kathy Cardiff’s cozy cottage quilts! Plenty of fun piecing and a bit of artful applique make these heirloom-quality bed covers, wall hangings, and lap quilts a joy to sew. The ten designs include sweet features like scalloped edges, pieced and appliqued flowers, easy Nine-Patch blocks, or a whirl of pinwheels. Each is accompanied by beautiful photography and step-by-step instructions and diagrams to make piecing even the more intricate designs a simple and pleasurable experience for all. The patterns include Sunshine and Blue, Reflections, Indian Summer, Sweet Magnolias, Simply Charming, Golden Rule, Farmer’s Market, Buttercream and Sprinkles, Boston Tea Party, and 100 Percent Cotton.
