What a Novel Idea! by Pat Sloan presents patterns and pointers on how best to showcase novelty print fabrics in 12 colorful quilts and four bonus pillows. All are quick and easy to make with basic piecing. Two quilts were made twice to show an alternate fabric choice, and one wall hanging shows how to add attractive borders to any size printed panel. 12 quick quilts and 4 pillows: A Pair of Winners (2 versions); All Aboard!; Churn Dash (2 versions); Cupcakes & Confections; Doggie Adoration; Island Dreams; Let’s Go Camping; Monkey Business; Sailing, Sailing; Panel Pizzazz; and Quick Pillows (one 14" pillow pattern with four versions having 10", 6" or 2" center blocks). Sooner or later, every quilter will be tempted to purchase a novelty fabric-but if he or she doesn't know how to use a fabric covered in cupcakes, sail boats, or passenger trains, that fabric will remain on the shelf! That's why everyone will welcome Pat Sloan's newest book.
