Overview

These 14 quilts are all award winners! They’ve taken the blue ribbon from large county fairs, small local quilt shows, and quilt challenges. And now quilters can recreate every one of these spectacular designs, thanks to the full-size patterns and instructions presented in this inspiring collection. Choose from classic as well as contemporary quilts: three use curve piecing while others feature traditional and fusible appliqué. An Oriental-themed design includes a variety of Japanese prints with blocks of machine-embroidered motifs. A wonderful rainbow Double Wedding Ring has foundation-pieced arcs. And because no quilt book would be complete without a Log Cabin quilt, there’s one here, too. Biographies of each of the quilters are included, along with the personal story behind each quilt’s creation.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

As implied by the title, this collection features quilts that have won prizes at fairs, quilt shows, and other competitions. The patterns range from prizewinners of the early 20th century to easy yet colorful patchwork-style wall hangings to exquisite appliqu�d full-sized quilts. The full-page photos of each design give an idea of the finished product, the step-by-step directions are easy to follow, and the patterns include all components, including appliqu� templates. An overview of appliqu� and foundation piecing techniques is also included. An excellent choice for any collection of quilting books.
