Can't wait to get started on a Happy Quilt for my granddaughter. The Windy Hill Farm and Purrrfectly Pretty Kitties are my favorites. Love all the extra instruction pages and fabric ideas. A CD with full size patterns already reversed for fusing is an especially helpful tool. Great book with every quilt having a fun stuffie to go with it. I definitely recommend this book to all quilting grandmas!

I'm a long-time fan of Red Boot Quilt Company patterns so when Toni wrote a book I was super excited to order it. It came in the mail last week and it's fabulous. And did I mention there's a CD in the back of the book so you don't have to trace the patterns? You can just print them out on your computer. One of my dearest friends is having her second little boy so now I have to sit down and decide which fabulous quilt to make first. Will it be the Wild Things? The Hound Dogs? The Robots? Sew many choices! Sew little time!

I just received my book yesterday. This is not my first Red Boots pattern and it won't be my last. These patterns are so stinking cute! As soon as I got it in the mail yesterday, my daughter and I sat down and chose what we were making first, then we rifled fabrics and made a list of what else we need. The problem was choosing which to start first. There are so many great ideas in here. We finally narrowed it down to the kitty, the pig and the dog. Okay and the superhero :) See what I mean? Can't do just one.The great things about her patterns are they are so simple. Anyone can do them. Anyone can make something from this book and it will look amazing. She breaks the pattern down to make it so easy and the finished product really looks like a professionally made item. You could easily make one of these softies in a day. The other great thing is that you probably have most of the fabrics you will use. There is no need to go spend tons on this fabric or that. You likely already have fabrics you can use in your stash. These are truly stash-busting projects. And if you do have to buy fabrics you're buying such small amounts it is very inexpensive.This is truly a book that you will want to make everything in and it won't break the bank.

Happy Quilts is a perfect title for this book. These quilts are seriously cute and the 'softies' that accompany them do not disappoint! This is by far the best quilt pattern book I bought this year, and perhaps since I started quilting. Each quilt has a theme that will make you and your little one smile and each has a softie pattern that makes the quilt come to life. The instructions are easy to understand and the CD templates are goof proof. Whether you are a seasoned quilter or novice beginner this book will help you piece like a rockstar and produce a quilt that will be cherished by your little one for years to come. I follow Toni on FB and she is without a doubt one of the most genuinely creative and kind people you will never meet but via FB! Thank you Toni for such an awesome book. Now to get sewing!

gorgeous book, Toni's quilt are always so friendly and happy, I couldn't wait to see this. My 8 yr old granddaughter flipped through the book marking a softie each for her 2 sisters and 3 cousins and special quilts for everyone, even the kitty one, she said specially for you Nanny. I can't wait to get started and the beary softie was the one she chose for herself.

Every page of this book is a delight! I can't decide which pattern I want to make first because I want to make them all. This book is full of wonderfully designed appliquéd characters for the young and young at heart. Clear instructions on how to make your own creations make this book a quilter's dream.

Toni this is such a cute book and the softies matching their quilt is brilliant! I bought this to make quilts for my grandkids (and who am I kidding...for me too), but in looking at all the quilts I quickly realized that I wanted to make them all. I am in treatment for ovarian cancer and try to do as much as I can for others fighting cancer. I decided to make all the quilts to donate to the children's cancer center near my home. I can hardly wait to get started. I can just see the happy smiles it will bring to the little fighters. Thank you so very much.

What an amazing book. It just arrived today and I am ecstatic. I even proudly showed it around to some of my work colleagues who are crafty souls and there were plenty of oohs and aahs from the ladies. There are so many wonderful projects that I'm going to have trouble deciding which one I'd like to start first. If it's not the wonderful softies to accompany each quilt like the Little Robot toy, Miss Kitty toy and the Bedtime Superhero doll, then it's the colourful, gorgeous quilts that are sure to entice. My favorites would definitely be the Tiny Princesses Quilt, the Purrrfectly Pretty Kitties Quilt (even though I'm not a huge cat fan) and the Little Robots Quilt (which my little boy is going to adore). Not only am I impressed with the tools and techniques section which is clear, concise and very thorough but the fabulous diagrams, which are all in colour, are brilliant. I cannot speak highly enough of this book. A huge congratulations to Toni on the successful release of her first ever book. All I can say is: buy it now and start creating. It will be one of your most loved, well thumbed book in your craft library!
