Quilt Blocks and Quilts from Your Favorite Fabrics: Recycling Fabrics as You Learn to Quilt

by Kate Perri
 

Easy Quilts from Your Closet is a guide to making the most of the fabrics you love. Quilting is a great way to recycle T-shirts, blue jeans, neckties, pj’s , and even prom dresses—to give old favorites a quick and cozy makeover.

Overview

Easy Quilts from Your Closet is a guide to making the most of the fabrics you love. Quilting is a great way to recycle T-shirts, blue jeans, neckties, pj’s , and even prom dresses—to give old favorites a quick and cozy makeover.

These fifteen projects teach three of the most basic quilting techniques: patchwork piecing, foundation piecing, and applique. Readers learn how to “deconstruct” their favorite garments and then reconstruct the pieces to form the small individual blocks that are stitched together to form a quilt.

Block by block, they’ll learn how to make quilt tops and “sandwiches” and then decoratively stitch their surfaces by machine—with straight lines or freeform shapes. They’ll also learn how to assemble blocks to make three full sampler quilts, adding sashing, binding, and designer labels.
