16/4/18. Reflecting the desire of late 20th-century crafters and artists to learn
about and take part in the handmade traditions of the past, quilting
has recently experienced a revival. This book provides a complete course
in this functional craft and features chapters on materials,
techniques, colour and design. The projects comprise a series of
lessons, each slightly more advanced than the last, that build a
vocabulary of techniques for conceiving and executing designs. Even if
readers have never sewn a stitch before, the first project - a doll's
patchwork quilt - should be well within their grasp. Experienced
quilters should appreciate the approach to colour and design that
evolves from the first quilt through to the last. In addition to such
fundamental procedures as estiming yardage, developing a layout,
choosing fabrics, piecing and quilting, each demonstration is
accompanied by a "colour note" that contains information on how colour,
line and shape can work most effectively within a particular pattern.
Also included are 14 additional patterns, each with a piecing sequence
diagram and an example of a completed square.
