My private stash is loaded with large-scale fabrics. I just can't seem to resist buying stunning African, Asian, Hawaiian, seasonal, juvenile, and floral fabrics. I loved them when I bought them and abhor the thought of cutting them into small pieces.

With Judy Sisneros' 9-Patch Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished in a Day, I can use these beautiful fabrics to make scrumptious quilts for my children and grandchildren. And because the projects are easy (not to mention fun) and fast, those numerous family members won't have to wait in line as long for "their" special quilt.

Every quilt in Sisneros' collection is a combination of solid pieces of fabric and Nine-Patch blocks (with the occasional Rail Fence block). The quilt patterns are beginner friendly but experienced quilters will have fun also. All the quilts consist of a focus fabric and a minimum of three companion fabrics.

If you want to piece a quilt in one day, 9-Patch Pizzazz: Fast, Fun & Finished in a Day would be a good book to use as a guide or for actual patterns. The directions are clear, concise and easy-to-follow. The quilts are lovely patterns that everyone would love to have. I'm making Oriental Flight. It's set on point and I'm using some of the beautiful Asian cotton fabric I bought in various Asian countries.

Armchair Interviews says: Beginners or experienced quilters will love 9-Patch Pizzazz. It's a keeper for your quilt book library.
