Jenny Wilding Cardon's The Little Box of Baby Quilts (9781564776990, $22.95) is a set of project cards that can be used to produce inspirational and quick designs for boys and girls. These are portable cards in a box, each holding step-by-step directions, a color photo and templates, and even an introduction to basic techniques for beginners. The quilts use a blend of quick piecing and easy applique techniques. While not appropriate for library lending, they are perfect for the quilter who wants a quick, take-along inspirational project card. Knitters seeking to move to the next level of experience will welcome Rebecca Lennox's KNITTING BEYOND THE BASICS (9781564777416, $27.95), a set of skill-building lessons linked to contemporary projects. Some seventeen projects build upon foundation knowledge and pair patterns and color photos with step-by-step directions for quick and easy learning. Cheryl Potter's SPECIAL LITTLE KNITS FROM JUST ONE SKEIN (9781564777195, $29.95) holds a range of ideas which can be made with just one skein of yarn--from scarves to shrugs, cover-ups, ponchettes and more. Color photos accompany step-by-step instructions and with the focus on temporary styling, knitters will find a range of ideas perfect for not just gift-giving, but for using up leftovers and small stashes of yarn.
