I purchased this book because the pictures shown were interesting and something different - a good start, so I thought! The instructions however are seriously lacking in detail. Regardless of whether or not you are competent or familiar with origami, Mrs Hiney's instructions, or lack of, will be the source of serious frustration and major headaches! Be prepared to do major research on your own to get proper instructions.
I received this book for Christmas 2007 and made one of the flower wall-hangings. These are hands down the worst instructions I have ever tried to follow. I was so frustrated that I went on-line to see if there were any updated instructions or corrections and could only find a message board from 2004 with other frustrated Quiltigami users. It seems as though the author wrote the instructions, had someone illustrate it without reading the instructions and then had it published with nobody ever trying to follow the instructions before printing the book! I recommend not wasting your money. Find a paper origami book and try creating them in fabric. I wish my sister could receive her money back.
Don't waste your money on such a sloppy pattern designer and writer. Her instructions have many errors and missing steps.
The finished items in this book look fantistic. However, the illustrations are done in line drawings and it is difficult to see the actual turn of the fabric. It would be much better if there were actual photographs used so that the visuals actually matched the end result. Inside the book it says you can contact the published, which I did, but I have not recieved any communication back from them. I would still like more information and better photos to complete the projects in the book.
There are many books written on this theme of manipulating fabric in interesting and different ways and this certainly is one of those books to have as a reference. It is well written and the instructions and pictures are easily understood. I suggest this as a must-have purchase to anyone who enjoys manipulating fabric.
I have never received it, I completely forgot about it so I have no clue what it's all about. Sorry for the rating but I did not know what else to put. Can't say I love it because I have never seen it.
After looking through this book from the library, I had to have it for reference. The author is very innovative with designs. Besides using the folds in quilts, there are projects for wall hangings of the memory style and even tote/purse bags. Very well illustrated.
great book lots of instructionswould recommend to any photo and sewing enthusiastlook forward to doing many projects with ideas given
