Book Review: Antique to Heirloom Jelly Roll Quilts

This book is a bit different to the usual Pam and Nicky Lintott brilliance that you already know I love. This book was only released a week ago so you may not have seen it yet, it’s shiny new! The theme of the book is Pam’s antique quilt collection, showing these off and then making their own variations of these quilts from jelly rolls- the most useful of all precuts.

Each project has a spread about an antique quilt like this…

And then shows a modern adaptation you can make with the following project, like this…

If you prefer more complex projects, you are likely to prefer Jelly Roll Dreams that I reviewed several weeks ago, this book has more simple designs for quilts as the antique ones used for inspiration tend to be one or two block style throughout. There are the usual half square triangles and log cabin layouts that appeal to those who like traditional designs. Don’t get me wrong, I prefer traditional designs (but with modern fabrics) but the half square triangle and I have our fall outs from time to time!

Here’s some examples of the most interesting projects (to me anyway)…

This one looks useful for inspiration for the UK Border’s Agency Bee!

I like the look of the tumbling block quilt best and think I will eventually make this one- I thought this would be quite a hard thing to make from a jelly roll and I thought there might be Y seams to sew but apparently not! Yey!

Antique to Heirloom Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott is available from RUCraft for £11.99.
