The Little Book of Simple QuiltingBook - 2013
Beautiful quilts make wonderful gifts and family heirlooms. This collection of simple projects suits anyone new to this age-old craft. Once women would cut up old clothes and faded household fabrics with the intention of utilising scarce and expensive resources. Today's quilters have thousands of fabrics in every design and hue at their ready disposal, all sold in convenient quantities ready for cutting and piecing into patchwork quilts. Yet the tradition of the quilters of yesteryear lives on in the designs that are made today. This book showcases a simple and traditional collection of quilts that anyone can make. Several of the quilts are small in scale, making them ideal projects for the novice. Each of the techniques is described in detail in the introduction. Included too is a list of all the essential tools and materials that you will need to create a beautiful quilt for a friend, loved one, or just for yourself. From simple American classics to bright designs for a cushion or a throw, this is a simple and beautiful book for this ancient craft.
