Sew 44 gorgeous gifts and 24 stunning quilts from your Jelly Roll stash

This redesigned collection of three of Carolyn Forster's bestselling books -Twenty to Make: Jelly Roll Scraps, Sew Jelly Roll Quilts & Gifts and Little Quilts & Gifts from Jelly Roll Scraps - is ideal for any quilter wanting to bust their Jelly Roll stash with 44 gorgeous gift projects and 24 quilts.

The quilts section is guaranteed to whet your appetite: there are 24 stunning quilts to choose from in a variety of sizes and styles, made using different techniques and quilting patterns. Choose from simple 'brick wall' and 'log cabin' designs, or create patchworks from diamonds, hexagons, tumblers and squares. There is a mix of hand and machine quilting, and full instructions are given for backing, binding and finishing your quilts. The gifts section contains 44 items to choose from - enough to bust any stash! Choose from cheery home items such as coasters, bags, pillows and toys, or select decorative items such bunting, a wreath or some scented hanging birds.

All the techniques needed are clearly explained step by step, and all the required templates are given at the back of the book.
