Overview

Aspiring quilters will love this practical, aesthetic, and magnificently photographed introduction to the craft. Every page showcases the most beautiful pieces to illustrate the various facets of this ever-popular art, including color, pattern, and texture. Color—from the bright blues and pinks of Amish designs to the subtle transition from light to dark in Log Cabin motifs—has always been one of the most exciting aspects of quilting, and you’ll be inspired to play with different combinations. See how to create gorgeous patterns on the quilt itself, and how a mix of quilts can enhance your décor. Try new fabric textures, and learn about tied quilting, quilting stitches, and breaking the boundaries of tradition. Twenty projects, including an Evening Star and a Jewel-Bright Mosaic.
