It was a busy weekend, but such a recharge your batteries type of weekend for me. I taught a brand new class, Perfectly Wonderful Bindings by Machine at Scrap and Sew this past Saturday to a full house of 12 students.

The quilting group I belong to wanted the book after a group member brought theirs to the meeting so I went hunting and Walmart was the cheapest I found even with the postage. Each of the club members will now pick a quilt out of the book for each to make.

I took an online class from Kimberly Einmo. I was so impressed that I purchased her book along with "Jelly Roll Quilts & More" as these were her inspiration / instructions for this online class. I am also the leader for Jelly Roll Strip exchanges within my local quilt guild and believe these books can be an invaluable tool to making some amazing quilts.

Just one warning for potential buyers. Please visit her website and download the corrections to these books, as there is some errors / issues with the instructions.

Yes, some of these jelly roll books are starting to look awfully similar, but I am still happily buying most of them. Kimberly Einmo's Jelly Roll Quilt Magic approaches the field of pre-cuts from a different perspective: create 11 basic block units from 7 basic sub-units. Add some signature Einmo style and your own personal fabric favorites, and you've got 12 new projects to consider. No black hat or magic wand needed!

What I like most about Einmo's books is that her spirit pervades each page and every instruction. She may be a unique master of fabric magic, but she's also "one of us". There's a lot of "I" and "me" in her books, and reading her text is like having a genuine conversation with her. Like all of us, she's owned her own share of "ugly" what-was-I-thinking fabrics (her solution: cut them up into smaller bits that will sparkle), and discovered too late an error in the finished top ("Don't stress!").

Einmo's real talent is in seeing a beautiful forest in all those pre-cut trees. There are some really extraordinary quilts in this book. "Starry Pines" features a star assortment surrounded by four fields of perfectly positioned pine trees. "Summer Sparklers" is a study in red, white, and blue, a sort of Uncle Sam deconstructed without being obviously Fourth of July. Like leaves? "Leaves in The Pumpkin Patch" will satisfy the autumn-lover with its oranges and browns, not to mention the quilted pumpkin pattern. My current favorite (subject to change later today) is "Shooting Stars", a lovely structured medley of stars and 4-patches that morph into chains, all using Moda's Bliss fabric line that I am still nutty about. With this project, her irrepressibly impish spirit teases us to find the "itty bitty" mistake in the sample photograph. I finally found it, but had to read through all the instructions first.

There are two bonus sections at the end of the book: a brief gallery section showing how to use leftover bitlets and a Round Robin way to build a fabulous quilt with friends via mail. That last section resulted in 4 stunning quilts which are shown and I just have to make someday using my own brain, as instructions are not provided for these 4 quilts.

All in all, Kimberly Einmo's Jelly Roll Quilt Magic is definitely buy-worthy because it sprinkles in a few really sophisticated yet do-able projects with the other more traditional pre-cut designs. It makes me want to see what else she can come up with in another book.

This book is more than just a collection of designs for jelly rolls and other precuts. Kimberly provides a lot of useful tips, including a table of block units (such as half-square triangles, rectangle triangles, etc.) that you can make from precuts. The designs are really nice, and not the blocky quilts that I've seen in other precut books. My only complaint is that the binding on the book itself is already coming apart and I have barely used it.

This is the best Jelly Roll quilt book I have found. Most of the patterns in other books are very simple and boring, this book is worth spending the money for the Jelly Roll, the designs are challenging and beautiful. There is one problem however...the book needed better editing with the directions, for the seasoned quilter this can be dealt with, for the beginner it would be frustrating.

The author's first book showcasing pre-cuts, Jelly Roll Quilts and More, was a huge success -=- a best seller for AQS. This book takes the concept of using pre-cuts even further. Although Ms. Einmo suggests using 3 recommended specialty rulers to create the quilts in her book, she includes directions for using standard rotary cutting rulers. She also makes it clear that you do not have to use those pre-cuts -- you can use fabric from your stash to get great results.

The quilts are beautiful. Some are more advanced than those in the first book, but the results are well worth it. The radiant star alone is worth the price of admission. Kimberly writes in a very personal style, making you feel as though she is right there beside you while you sew. She gives a peek into her family, has some yummy recipes to share, and even gives suggestions for quilting your finished top. I really liked the pictures of alternate fabric selections and her patterns for little quilts make with the left-over cuts from the bigger quilts.

I find Kimberly's instructions precise, clear, and easy to follow. My only problem is trying to figure out which quilt to make first.

I love this book! I am new to quilting & learning as I go. Basically teaching myself. I love pre-cuts so this book is a favorite. The layout of the book is excellent. Easy to read projects & reference charts, tips on cutting, thoughts on quilting, templates & resource lists, and "top tips & techniques to make your own jelly roll magic!" Kimberly Einmo presents her expertise in a pleasant & fun manner. I used information in this book to help me with other projects. Whether you are a new quilter or an experienced one I think you will enjoy this book. Happy Quilting!

Like many pattern books, there was only 1 design that really interested me. I have been sewing for over 50 years, and have pieced quite a few quilts, however the instructions in the book were sketchy. Even though I cut everything to exact sizes, and squared up half way through the block, NONE of my blocks finished at the 10.5" size the author stated.
I really enjoyed reading and sewing Kimberley Einmo instructions, so very clear and precise, do exactly as she says and you won't go far wrong. Although I have made many quilts I have never had any instructions from a professional, it was such a pleasure reading and sewing her instructions instead of doing my quilts blind, I have learned such a lot, I really encourage you to buy the book and indeed the great rulers she has designed.
