Book Look

By Dana C Lewis

Best of Fons and Porter : Star Quilts

27 Stunning designs for Every Décor, Season and Skill Level

Published by Leisure Arts 2012

Star blocks and star quilts are always favorites; Ask anyone who sells patterns. This book offers a good variety, including at least four feathered star quilts, and a storm at sea (why yes, there is a star in there) . You will find easy and complex stars, miniature and king-sized and everything in between. The construction methods include rotary cut, templates, and paper pieced. Some are offered in multiple sizes.

Many of these patterns were familiar to me, as they have been published in the Fons and Porter Love of Quilting magazines. They also include the Sew Easy sewing tips and alternative color options as they do in the magazines too.

i do not find any published corrections for this book.


I have enjoyed being your librarian for the past 11 years. My own library has swelled and shrunk and swelled again with lifes changes. It is time for me to allow someone else to bring their thoughts on quilt books to you. I thank you for all the positive responses and encouragement over the years. I love you guys.
