Quilt Style

Quilt Style: Cool and Cozy Coverlets introduces a fabulous collection of quilts made in today’s fresh colors and clean style—from simple four-patch coverlets in English rose patterns to log-cabin patterns in ice-cream colors, all keyed to a more relaxed lifestyle and the desire for simple pleasure.

Inside You’ll Find

• Simple, pretty, and practical quilts for guest beds and pullout couches, cribs, single- and queen-sized beds; one made from ‘40s-style hankies; and a fresh-off-the-clothesline patchwork made from men’s shirts

• Over 250 full-color styled photographs, and precise tables and diagrams for making each in the 18-quilt collection (and an additional 18 variations and several pillowcases)

• Easy enough for a beginner, inspiring for a veteran, each quilt is accompanied by easy-to-follow directions and patterns, design tips, and ideas for adapting each pattern to a new colorway

• Comprehensive, illustrated mini-course in quilting, “Quilting Basics”; a sumptuous Sources and Resources section; and a helpful Index

• A unique easel-back, spiral-bound, stand-up format that allows the pages of the book to lie flat or to stand upright, facilitating “hands free” access to the information on each page
