Edyta Sitar's Patches of Stars: 17 Quilt Patterns and a Gallery of Inspiring Antique Quilts (9781683560388, $29.99) comes from the designer of Laundry Basket Quilts who uses star quilts and antique quilt inspirations to put together new patterns and ideas. Instructions for almost twenty of Sitar's custom quilt designs accompany their foundations of inspiration and pages packed with colorful patterns, examples, and full-page finished quilts. Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings helps stitchers expand their ideas and techniques with Wool, Needle & Thread: The Go-To Guide for Wool Stitchery (9781683560319, $28.99). Step-by-step instructions for wool applique projects accompany photos and tips that range from fabric considerations to tools and threads. A dozen embroidery stitches are presented in sharp photos that leave nothing to wonder, while five projects put the stitch instructions to work in completed designs. Lissa Alexander compiles Mix it Up! 16 Quilts from Cake Mix & Cupcake Mix Papers (9781683560302, $27.99), presenting a patchwork compilation especially appropriate for beginners because it requires no special sewing skills to prove successful. All that is needed is a pack of Cake Mix Papers for 10" squares or Cupcake Mix Papers for 5" squares, a stack of fabrics, and this book, which allows beginners to pick a pattern and sew and cut on the dotted lines to produce quilt blocks. Newcomers to Cake Mix and Cupcake Mix Paper piecing will find this book the perfect place to start.
