Overview

Experienced quilters who want to share sewing and quilting ideas with tweens and teens will love these fresh ideas for accessories, home dec items, and quilts. A total of 17 projects include styles for boys or girls, young children or older, traditional or trendy colors, and bed or wall-size quilts. Projects such as the quilted laptop cover and the message board will appeal to quilters of any age. Several of the projects combine traditional art forms of collage, rubbings, and mosaic patterning, along with the techniques of piecing, appliqué, and embroidery. Both hand and machine techniques are included throughout. Because beginners and especially children are visual learners, every project is laid out with good basic quiltmaking instruction in easy to follow step-by-step photos.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book was a little different than I had thought, but is good for the Teens and Tweens generation on quilting. Lots of different projects. Good instruction. Really satisfied with the service I got from the vendor. Had the book in 2 days from order on line. -B. DePoy
