20 Fast And Fabulous Quilts For The Home.
From cot quilts to full-size bed quilts, the designs in this bright and colourful new collection cover a range of sizes to suit a variety of uses in the home. Absolute beginners will find complete instructions for all the basic techniques at the start of the book, then can take their pick from the small, medium and large quilt projects which follow. Each of the 20 quilts has concise instructions which, together with the clear diagrams, take you step-by-step through the various stages of cutting the fabrics, stitching the patches together and finally assembling and quilting the piece.
The small quilts in the first section are an ideal starting point for those trying quilting for the first time but projects such as the Miniature Log Cabin Wall hanging also present an interesting variation on a classic design for quilters with some experience. The medium size quilts range from throws to lap quilts and the focus of the section on large quilts is mainly on bed quilts. Fabrics throughout the book are fresh and bright with a selection of four alternative colourways showing how different fabrics can change the mood of the patterns to suit different decorative styles.
The techniques used in the cutting, construction and finishing of all of the quilts, not matter what their size, are all designed to be quick and easy, so that any of these attractive patterns can be in minimum time to give maximum pleasure.
