Not only is the book title of What a Novel Idea cute, but it’s designed around the use of novelty print fabrics that we all love. From monkeys, owls and boats to cupcakes and fish, chances are good that you have some of these fun fabrics in your stash. Pat Sloan’s book features 12 quick quilts to make that showcase the novelty prints to their best. In addition to the well illustrated step-by-step quilt directions, there are also instructions included for some feature pillows, and a section on basic quilting techniques, so even if you’ve never quilted before, you’ll find success (and compliments) from this book.
