  1. This book is an absolute “must have” for anyone who knows and cares for a little one! The author Kristin Kolstad Addison has designed five fabulous quilts with a a lot of accessories for children to play with. The guidelines in the book are easy to understand, the patterns easy to follow. The author has included quite a few tips to make it even easier.
    A few weeks ago I was able to see two of the quilts “live”, and they were even more charming than in the pictures. These quilts are suitable for the floor as well as the wall, but are not meant as interior decorations: Do not expect that your little one will leave these quilts alone! Before you know what happened, the gift you made from one of the projects in this book will generate a lot of new adventures. Or even better – make the quilt together with the recipient. Then you’ll have more fun, too! The quilts are equally suitable for boys and girls.

    This book is quite simply fantastic! I am currently half-way through making the Pirate Ship quilt, and my daughters (ages 5 + 3) are having so much fun picking out the fabric, buttons, embellishments, and watching me at the sewing machine. The patterns in this book are fabulous — I plan on making the Lunar Landing quilt next, especially since I’ve found some perfect fabric for it and have enjoyed making the Pirate Quilt thus far. I’m an intermediate-level quiltmaker in a local quilt guild, but this book explains everything so even a beginner can have excellent results. I cannot say enough good things about these patterns. Ingenious, really: the patterns incorporate movable/ removable items as well as permanent items, so the child can truly play with the quilt. Imagination and creativity at its finest! Hats off to the author and designer! Well done!

  3. Making quilts for babies and children is of course one of the most satisfying ways quilters can show their love of family and friends. Lately, children’s quilts have become something more than simple bed-coverings. Kristin Addison, living in her native Norway with twin daughters, was faced with their fears of polar bears when they moved to a new town. Not a normal fear for those of us in more southern climes, but it inspired Kristin to make a quilt embellished with toys and soft-sculptures that helped the girls act out and overcome their fears. Thus the first of her “play quilts” was born, and the rest is this book. Combining quilts with simple doll-making techniques, these projects are great fun to make and then continue to give joy through their playful interactive qualities. Themes of the projects include outer space, the farm, a pirate ship, an animal train, and many others. Cute original ideas, great instructions, templates and great photography.
