The tradition of quilting has been kept alive through the passing on of knowledge and ideas from generation to generation. Many quilters can relate their early experiences with inspiring personal stories, and Cynthia Tomaszewski, author of Quilting Those Flirty 30s is one of them. Learn just as she did about the most popular designs of the 1930's and make them yourself! There's even a bonus for anyone looking to add to their vintage experience even more with delicious homemade dessert recipes that accompany each quilt pattern.

What you'll find so beautiful about this book is apparent from the first pages. Tomaszewski decides to start off the book by telling readers about her great grandparents' family as remembered by her great Aunt Christie. We learn about the lifestyle of a family living through the frugal 1930's, and also see how the tradition of quilting has been passed down to five generations within the family. By doing this, the author reminds us of the joy and beauty that quilting brings, which will easily inspire readers to take a deeper look at what they're making.

After providing readers with a cohesive run through of recommended supplies and helpful instructions on how to work on basic quilt patterns and applique designs, the book provides 11 quilt patterns and recipes that reveal the charming appeal of the 1930's. While the patterns themselves vary from full quilt patterns to small practical projects, the consistency in design in apparent. Each project has a template of beautiful little flowers and shapes that come to life with a series of color schemes chosen to match the 30's style (which Tomaszewski also lays out for readers). To top everything off and thoroughly give readers a nostalgic experience, the recipes included are all for the most delicious and easy-to-make homemade cookies.
