By Elaine Hammond
Elanie Hammond knows how important it is that quilts for children should not simply be adult quilts on a smaller scale. Bright, interactive and sure to enhance any child's room, all of the quilts in this beautiful book have been specially designed with children in mind.
There are 14 fabulous quilts in all--something to delight children from any age group, from 1 to 13 years old. From a brightly colored quilt with matching clutch ball to a chess quilt with fabric playing pieces, each project includes detailed instructions and guidelines for drafting designs, making templates, choosing and cutting fabric and more.
Additional advice is provided for making smaller items, including soft toys, wall hangings, and a floor cushion.
Elaine Hammond, a quilter for over 20 years, jointly started Patchwork & Quilting magazine in 1985, which was responsible for launching Quilts UK, now one of the largest quilt shows in the world. She lives in Malvern Link, England.
