Author Joy-Lily helps readers to put the fun back into quilting. Inside, readers will experience a fresh approach to quilting with two simplified, carefree methods:"sew & flip" and "stack, slice & swap," where skills like matching seams and measuring are not important. At the end of construction, each piece is trimmed to a uniform size to facilitate mixing and matching into many quilted projects. While matching seams and other traditional quilting skills are unimportant for success with these instructions, the reader will still learn basic quilting techniques, including strip piecing, curved piecing, foundation piecing, sewing on a bias, piece swapping and more, as they work through the blocks. A getting started section explains which rules are necessary and which are optional.

In this fascinating book about our struggle to forgive, psychologist and award-winning author Robert Karen uses movies, people in the news, and sessions from his practice to illuminate the conflict between our wish to repair our relationships on one side and our tendency to see ourselves as victims who want revenge on the other. Why do we harden our hearts, even against those we want to love? Why do we find it so hard to admit being wrong? Why are the worst grudges the ones we hold against ourselves? When we nurse our resentments, Karen says, we are acting from an insecure aspect of the self that harbors unresolved pain from childhood. But we also have a forgiving self which is not compliant or fake, but rather the strongest, most loving part of who we are. Through it, we are able to voice anger without doing damage, to acknowledge our own part in what has gone wrong, to see the flaws in ourselves and others as part of our humanity. Karen demonstrates how we can move beyond our feelings of being wronged without betraying our legitimate anger and need for repair. The forgiving self, when we are able to locate it, brings relief from compulsive self-hatred and bitterness, and allows for a re-emergence of love.
