Review from Popular Patchwork, April 2014
Originally published by Martingale in [1997], this is a fresher revitalised version of a clever title from the same publisher's imprint, That Patchwork Place. Margaret Rolfe is a veteran Australian quilter and her clever interpretations of animals using foundation piecing are testament to her wealth of experience. The main feature of the book is the foundation-pieced animals, although there is advice on quilt-making basics and designing with the blocks, as well as pre-designed quilts and a gallery of the blocks to the rear of the book which is great for inspiration. With over fifty designs to make, Margaret has provided an animal block for all occasions, and the opportunity for more ambitious makers to make five themed quilts: "Ark Quilt", "Farm Quilt", "Zoo Quilt", "North American Animals Quilt" and "Australian Animals Quilt". This is the perfect title for those who really want to get stuck into foundation piecing and make some really fun gifts at the same time!
