The publisher of Generation Q magazine presents a collection of projects from its pages with a clever twist-all are designed for swapping, in which the members of a group make and exchange the same pattern among themselves. Thus, the projects here are fairly simple and charming, from the Kaleidoscope pincushion pictured on the cover to a Coffee Cup Tool Caddy, which will transform a mug into a sewist's assistant. A variety of techniques and materials are employed throughout: a diaper clutch uses oilcloth, while Parquet Pot Holders include insulation. Several simple small quilts are included as well. The swap conceit really only goes so far-how many quilting groups need multiple diaper clutches?-but all of the ideas here are accessible, well-designed, and clearly explained and illustrated. So long as the person attempting these has some basic knowledge of quilting, this book is a great addition to the home library, with lots of gift ideas to boot. Full color photos.
