Flowers and quilts seem to go together. Perhaps because so many of the traditional designs used by quilt makers are based on nature, especially plant forms, it is possible to trace the history of Western quilt making in terms of floral quilts.
'A Quilter's Guide To Floral Quilts' is a flower-lover's treasure - a gallery of floral quilts, both traditional and modern, and photographed in full colour, covers appliqué, patchwork, and quilting, together with floral borders and quilts embellished with flowers and other plant forms. In each chapter there are blocks to make, based on historical quilts and shown step-by-step, as well as a templates section at the end of the book, to help you create your very own heirloom quilt.
