Review: By Dori Hawks

Just when you think you have figured out how to paper piece, someone comes along with a totally new and simpler method. Anita Grossman Solomon has come up with a revolutionary concept on how to paper piece, and I was impressed!

Having taught paper/foundation piecing methods for several years, I thought there wasn’t much more than maybe some little techniques to learn, but duh… wrong I was!

Anita’s method is a totally new way to approach paper piecing. The whole block is on one piece of paper, not in little sections. No way, you say? Yes, it works!

She easily guides you through making a pretty simple block, but with that one block you can easily grasp the concept and you can hardly wait to try more and more block variations.

There are over 30 block designs, and many quilt variations. I bet you can’t make just one! They are addicting, accurate and easy. Ready, set, go – how many blocks will you make? I am ready to close myself in my studio and have an Anita Solomon “Make It Simpler” paper piecing marathon. Definitely add this to your personal or guild library. Look for this book at your favorite quilt shop!
