Cheryl Arkinson // Dining Room Empire"Two things make this book stand out - Creative Exercises and Happiness Practices. A book focused solely on creative exercises and personal exploration for the quilter could be quite intriguing. There is a lot of that in this book and for that reason I would recommend this one, even if you never made a pattern from it." -Cheryl Arkinson, Dining Room Empire Read full review


The Crafty Quilter"A beautiful book that I’m still absorbing – each page like the bite of a delicious dessert that you don’t want to end!" -Julie Cefalu, The Crafty Quilter Read full review


"In my opinion, everyone who considers themselves to have a crafty heart should have this book in their reference library, and it is an absolute must for anyone with a quilt-y heart." -Pam Harris, Gingerbread Snowflakes Read full review



"There’s a quiz in this book to help you get in touch with your “Inner Quilter”, which I think will help you realize that we all have our own unique style and approach to creativity. There is no right way!" -Ellen Luckett Baker, The Long Thread Read full review



"I love that there are detailed instructions for cutting the fabric. A lot of books will tell how many of each shape and size to cut, but leave it up to you to figure out the most efficient way to do that. This book breaks it down step by step. It tells you how many strips to cut of each size, then exactly what pieces to cut from those strips. Very nice!" -Wendi Gratz, Shiny Happy World Read full review

"Congratulations Christina and Diane on a beautiful book." -Heather Lott, Quilt Or Stitch? Read full review



"Quilting Happiness offers plenty of luscious quilting and patchwork projects to inspire and energize, a must-have for any quilting book, but this book was different from any quilting book I've run across before. I know I love to make quilts, of course, but Christine and Diane challenged me to figure out what, exactly, I love about it through a series of creative exercises." -Kim Fraser, Spoonflower.com Read full review


"The projects are perfect to stretch me out of my comfort zone a bit…not too hard to be scary, but not whip-it-up-in-one-night projects either." - Allison Harris, Cluck Cluck Sew Read full review

It includes a section on useful tools and a list of online resources, and projects are rated by difficulty level." -Kaesmene Harrison, Kaesey Read full review
