Yoko Saito's I Love Houses (9780986302992, $32.95) is recommended for needleworkers who want to make and incorporate a wide range of house images into their projects, and comes with a separate pattern sheet which can be used to reproduce many of the projects within. Wall hangings, totes, purses and decorations are just of the few projects included in this guide, which offers everything needed to reproduce them, from a close-up guide to different stitches to small close-up color photos for piecing together each project. The result will delight folk artists and needleworkers as well as any who want to make and incorporate house images in their quilts and needlework projects. Andy Knowlton's Fresh Fat-Quarter Quilts: 125 Projects for Your Favorite Fabrics (9781683560357, $25.99) offers a fat quarter quilting guide with a difference: one that advocates blending stars, arrows and other motifs into fat quarter designs. Patterns and full-page color photos accompany step-by-step directions that leave nothing to wonder, making this project guide a fine choice for both newcomers and those already familiar with fat quarter piecing who seek innovative new ideas.
