This book provides patterns and step-by-step instructions for creating 13 sensational classic quilts in both the traditional methods of piecework and appliqué and also the innovative style of combining the two. Pieced quilts have been a favoured tradition among quiltmakers for centuries.
The patterns showcased here are popular favourites. Each quilt is classic in its simplicity and design, with easy-to-use illustrations and instructions. Appliqué quilts, the epitome of sewn handwork, are presented with detailed directions for both technique and completion. The best of both traditions join together to complete the volume.
Offered in the final third of the book are innovative combination quilts which feature both appliqué and piecing techniques, so that the quiltmaker can apply the techniques developed in the first two-thirds of the book to create stunning quilts displaying a range of skills.
