Overview

Old quilts give today's inspiration for color, composition, crafters and fabric usage, as shown in this beautiful and practical instruction book.

Both antique and new creations are included to illustrate many pattern possibilities for folk-art scrap quilts, pieced quilts, and pieced and appliqued quilts. The interaction of fabrics within a quilt is carefully explained. The book also shows how to cut shapes freehand to simulate folk art, how to choose just the right blocks for building patterns, and other techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Horton dedicates this book to all those individuals who have said to me, I cant do that, Im a traditional quiltmaker. Over the years, she has amassed a remarkable collection of scrap quilts. Here she uses 65 pieces from her collection to illustrate effective ways to work with different fabric categories (textured fabric, printed motifs, plaids) and colors in designing quilts from fabric scraps. While she discusses such familiar topics as the use of color and choosing fabrics, she also emphasizes topics not widely covered elsewhere, such as free-form piecing and cutting paper patterns for appliqus based on drawings. Neither a pattern collection nor a how-to book, this is a guide to using fabric scraps in novel and creative ways. Highly recommended for quilting collections. [BOMC/ Crafters Choice alternate selection.]

I'd suggest you take a peek even if you have no intention of making a quilt, just to be reminded of how spectacular the quilting past has been and how alive it still can be.
