Quilters who have a curiosity when it comes to new techniques and quilting practices will love exploring the quilting patterns and tutorials provided in Donna Lynn Thomas’ On-Point Patchwork. This amazing collection, brought to you by the Patchwork Place and Martingale, details the many ways you can use the omnigrid on-point ruler to create fuss-free diagonals. This nifty little tool brings a whole new quilting world to your crafting room and this book is the perfect accessory. Not an owner of an omni on-point ruler? No worries! You can still use traditional cutting and measuring techniques to sew up these quilts.

 The quilting patterns in this book are divided into three different categories of difficulty from “Hey, this is easy!” to “Love the challenge!” This diversity of pattern difficulty makes this a great book to purchase for quilters of just about any skill level. New quilters can try the easy patterns and come back to more involved endeavors after some practice. Experienced quilters will enjoy the more difficult patterns but will find value in whipping up some quick and easy quilts too. If you do not have a lot of experience with basic quilting cutting techniques, never fear! The first few sections do a great job of explaining simple and all too important steps like cutting squares and stripping pieces.

No matter what color scheme you are looking to work with while quilting, On-Point Patchwork has a lovely example for you. From colorful baby quilts like the “Summer Starbaby” to more subdued designs for the home like the navy and blue “Snail’s Trail”, each of these designs come with inspiring fabric combos. No matter your end goal, you will not be disappointed.

Quilting pattern books can struggle in finding a good balance between instruction, technique, and design. Sometimes they are far too instructive and lack a library of patterns.  On-Point Patchwork is not one of those books. This book is full of instruction by way of lovely designs and patterns. Not only does it show you how to complete certain techniques, it helps you execute them professionally.
