Overview

This sweet and simple pattern collection presents 12 adorable quilting and home-decoration projects inspired by the traditions, hospitality, and pure warmth of the cotton-growing states. A pretty and colorful mix of pillows, wall hangings, and pieced and appliqued quilts provide for fun and easy sewing, while a wonderful ten-block farm-sampler quilt evokes the gentle rhythms of life on a southern farm. Many projects can be completed in an afternoon, while others make for an enjoyable weekend of sewing. A primer on quilting skills presents all the help beginners need—including quick-sew techniques such as rotary cutting, strip piecing, fusing, and raw-edge appliqué. Sprinkled throughout are period photographs of life in the South, as well as simple recipes, historical notes, anecdotes, mottos, and songs.
